Telepan
72 West 69th Street (at Columbus Ave)

Hours: 5pm-6:30pm; 7:30pm-8:30pm; 9pm-10:30pm
Price: $75/first seating; $95/ second seating; $125/third seating
Telepan will offer a festive three-course prix fixe menu from 5-6pm: great for dinner before going out to celebrate the New Year with friends. Then, from 7:30-8:30pm, guests can enjoy a four-course meal featuring caviar, black truffles and some Telepan favorites. To end the evening from 9 – 10:30pm, a celebratory Champagne toast accompanies the four-course dinner.

The Americano (518 West 27th Street, 212-525-0000) is holding a stylish New Year’s Eve party — the Masquerade Ball, complete with dinner and dancing. Guests are encouraged to wear black and white for the bash, which pays homage to the costume parties that were all the rage in France during the 15th century. The design of the restaurant perfectly embodies the party’s sleek theme: Black banquets give The Americano an air of sophistication, while high ceilings, large light fixtures and floor-to-ceiling windows accentuate the light-filled room. And The Americano’s New Year’s Eve tasting menu is just as stunning as the décor, featuring Executive Chef Joseph Buenconsejo’s exquisite French fare with a Latin flair.

Expect skilled dancers clad in lace corsets, feathered boas and ostentatious make-up, Red Velvet Martinis, surround sound music blasting Big Bad Voodoo Daddy hits, the song “Lady Marmalade” and more, and an awesome barbecue buffet. Dining highlights include a house-smoked ham carved to order, smoked onion hush puppies, roasted corn arugula salad, peach cobbler and much more. And of course, a champagne toast at midnight.
