New York City is the world’s hot spot when it comes to celebrating New Year’s Eve. But, just across the river in Hudson County, New Jersey, there are some pretty awesome celebrations going on as well. We decided to round up some of the best places in the area to score a great meal while ringing in 2017.
Keep it a low key New Years with some pizza and Prosecco. Not only will you be able to get the same Neapolitan-style pies from Asbury Park at this Jersey City eatery, but the restaurant is also hosting a party from 10:30 pm. to 3 a.m. They’ll be serving up house-made ricotta and specialty pies, like the Italian Stallion that comes with San Marzano tomatoes, house-made mozzarella, gorgonzola, sweet Italian sausage and long hots. You’ll also be treated to dessert and a DJ
You’ll get all the views of New York without all the hassle and crowds. Yup, this local cruise line is setting sail at 10pm on New Year’s Eve from Lincoln Harbor to tour around NYC and New Jersey. For $280 you’ll get an open bar, a buffet of things like enjoy orzo and bay shrimp salad, whole-roasted pork loin bathed in a dijon-cream sauce, honey-sesame chicken and a selection of cakes, custards and cannolis, a champagne toast and spectacular views of New Year’s Eve fireworks displays during the three-hour tour.
This Austrian beer hall will be serving up plenty of bratwurst, schnitzel and strudel to ring in the New Year. They’re also going to have giant pretzels, raffles and music starting at 9:30 p.m. And it won’t break the bank either. You can reserve a table of 10 for $200, which includes a sausage platter and a pitcher of beer. Have a lot of friends without plans? For $400, 20 people can enjoy a larger selection of sausage and two pitchers of haus brew. Walk-ins will pay just $30 at the door.
Like the Spirit of New Jersey, you’ll be able to get great views of New York City without all the crowds. Oh, and you’ll be on dry land. At the restaurant you’ll pay $125 for a three-course dinner that includes things like charred octopus, jumbo crab cakes and a surf and turf entree. There will be DJs on both floors, so after you’re done eating you can dance into 2017.
