For the first time in several years, we are planning on not traveling for New Year's. The past few years we have done NYE in Newport, but it's not in the cards this year. We plan on dining with our sons (13 and 18) somewhere in the greater New Haven area (or perhaps something like a 30 mi radius!) and would like to have a first class dinner without the hype or wildly inflated prices.
Our sons have fairly sophisticated palates, so we are definitely not talking about low end dinner houses.
I haven't really pursued any of our favorite restaurants yet (in New Haven, that would be Roomba, Pacifico, Union League, Ibiza, Zinc, now bespoke, etc) but my assumption is that they will have expensive prix fixe menus. Any suggestions???
