Everyone knows bars and restaurants are overpriced and overcrowded on New Year’s Eve. But exactly how costly is counting down the clock with a seven-course tasting menu or an open bar? Y&H rounded up prices from 60 restaurants offering prix-fixe dinners or throwing parties for New Year’s Eve to figure out what they’re charging on average. (The restaurants factored here were randomly selected from promotions and press release in our inbox.) Many places offer different prices for earlier vs. later seatings or the number of courses and extravagances involved. For the sake of simplicity, Y&H looked at just the most expensive options when calculating these numbers. Drink pairings were not included in the math unless they were built into the base cost of the reservation.
