Where to Celebrate New Years Eve in NYC:
The New Year’s Eve tradition in Spain is called “Nocheviaje," the old night. Hours before midnight, hordes of people gather in Madrid’s Puerta Del Sol to await the chiming of the clock tower heralding in the New Year.
This year Co-Chef Owners Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette invite you to experience “Nocheviaje” at Toro in the former Nabisco Factory in South Chelsea. This incarnation of a Barcelona-style tapas bar, features traditional and modern tapas, wine and cocktails, and celebrates regional Spanish flavors.
On New Year’s Eve join in the celebration at a Masquerade Party running from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. and featuring a DJ, Dancing, a raw bar, pinchos, which are small Spanish Kabobs and an open bar with signature TORO cocktails. Tickets are $250 all-inclusive and can be bought exclusively on Resy by visiting clicking this link. Cocktail Attire required. For more information go to toro-nyc.com
Besides being one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants, this is also a great value considering how wonderful the food is. All four courses are only $69. Skip the pasta course and the three courses are $54.
The bar will be a la carte all evening and a complimentary champagne toast will be offered at midnight.
