New Year’s Eve in Astoria!
By Ilija Sekulovski
The Thirsty Koala, 35-12 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria NY 11105
Mhhh, one of our favorite restaurants. The Thirsty Koala is having a pre-fixe menu for just $40, but they’re also offering up their regular menu – which we like, because you don’t have to feel tied down to pre-fixe choices. They’re also having live Jazz music, which makes them the perfect mix of party and casual. This is one place we’ll definitely be stopping by.
Bourbon and Vine, 36-05 30th Avenue, Astoria, NY 11103
$60 for five drinks and a three course meal at this spot!
Off the Hook , 2808 34th St, Astoria, NY 11103
From Off the Hook: Dinner at Off the Hook On New Year’s Eve: We’ll be serving a special Menu made of classic OTH dishes and an array of special ones our Chef will come up with, just for this night. We’re offering the option of a 5 course Prix Fixe Dinner for our guests at $85/person. Kitchen is open until 11:55pm. After the countdown to 2015 the tunes will be spinning and the drinks will be pouring all night as we wait for the New Year’s first Sunrise. Since we love the change of Years so much, on the 1st we open our doors for a late delicious Brunch, 1pm to 4pm, before we start serving dinner as usual…
