If you're ready to get out on the town and enjoy a special night out this New Year's Eve (and no one should deny we all deserve a little indulgence at this point), Hoodline has you covered. We've rounded up a full course of tempting prix-fixe meals at various price points in San Francisco and the East Bay.

Just remember that New Year's reservations can fill up quickly, so plan ahead, and also keep in mind that drinks, taxes and tip are generally not included in fixed-price meals. As always, double-check all details (menus can change!) and check on Covid safety rules, as well. Cheers!
