Where to Eat on New Year’s Eve in Miami

By Eater Staff for Miami Eater



Recently we heard the news that Selena Gomez is sick of that same old love, and many of us here in the Magic City are sick of that same old New Year’s Eve meal. Meatloaf’s, roasted veggies and the ever-present puerco asado aside, we’ve compiled a list of the ultimate New Year’s Eve dinning hot spots throughout South Florida’s popular neighborhoods.

From five-course to seven-course meals and even a decadent wine-pairing soirée, these menu selections are fully equipped to help you keep the party going all night long, or ring in the New Year from your couch post food coma.
