Either way, time to usher in 2024 with loving arms and big appetites because there’s still time to make sure you’ve booked that ever-important final meal or celebration of the year. And while plenty of restaurants stay open for New Year’s Eve, these are the ones offering up a little something extra or unexpected for the special occasion. But don’t wait too long to buy your tickets or make reservations — spots are flying faster than the number of days left in 2023.
