  1. Howdy Anestes,

    Man, your site is remarkable. I didn’t know what a great resource you’ve made avaiable. I saw your New Years Eve listing and I was hoping you wouldn’t mind adding Pai Men Miyake to your list. We’re offering a special New Years Eve menu and cocktail list. Thanks so much. See you soon.



  2. No one’s specifically promoted a special New Year’s day brunch. Hopefully some of the usual suspects for weekday breakfast will be open.

    New Year’s day evening Local 188 is holding their usual Paellafest.

  3. Patrick, glad to hear you like the site. Yes, I’d be happy to add Pai Men to the list. Will Miyake on Fore Street be offering a NYE dinner as well?
