WHERE TO DINE ON NEW YEAR'S EVE 2023/2024?

New Year's Eve is the one day of the year that most of us have planned a long time in advance. In this blogpost, we therefore move beyond the spontaneous restaurant visits, to give you tips for finding a table for New Year. Many restaurants are already fully booked, but if you still haven't planned your evening, here are 20 restaurants that have created excellent new year menus for you to enjoy the last day of the year in the best way possible.
 

Postpone the Christmas planning for a few days and spend some time securing a table at one of the many good restaurants that are open on New Year's Eve. When that's done, you just need to buy some delicious alcohol for the after-party, and then New Year's Eve is in place. Most restaurants close around 23.00, but we have also found a few where it is a possibilty to continue your party after midnight. Either way, we promise you a lot of delicious New Year menus out there that can give you a good start on the last night of the year 🥂 🎉

 

But seriously, you need to hurry. We are not the only ones who have had this idea, which is why many places are already fully booked. But you're in luck, because we've done a little detective work and found 20 great restaurants that still have open tables.
