Delice & Sarrasin

West Village, Manhattan

Celebrate New Year’s in New York, French-style, at Delice & Sarrasin, an authentic French restaurant that also happens to be fully plant-based. Start your New Year’s Eve meal with the Foie Gras Vegan Avec Confiture de Figue (tahini-based vegan foie gras with fig jam and levain bread) and Tournedos Rossini (Impossible filet steak cooked in Frontignan sauce atop a light butter crouton, topped with foie gras and fresh black truffle). There is also an extensive vegan wine list that includes champagne, so you can say bonjour to the new year with a little bubbly.

Brooklyn’s popular New Year’s Eve party is back for 2021 at Pine Box Rock Shop, a live comedy, craft beer, and cocktail purveyor that is known to do collaborations and events with local vegan spots throughout the year. The NYE block party will feature a free champagne toast and balloon drop, followed by a New Year’s Bloody Mary Relaunch Party the next day. While the New Year’s parties are free to attend, it is encouraged that guests register for the events ahead of time.
