Ring in the New Year With These Detroit Restaurant Meals

Where to order drinks and food for the last godforsaken night of 2020

View as Map

Don those party hats and break out the champagne flutes. New Year’s Eve is almost here and establishments across Detroit restaurants and bars are bracing for the conclusion of 2020 with special menus designed for celebrating at home. There are a limited supply of options so make sure to get in orders early. Below, find a roundup of some of the best bets for a final meal of the year including pricing and menu details.

Above all, remember that no matter how normal it may feel to go out and eat again, dining right now is not the same. Takeout or outdoor dining are generally considered by health experts to be lower-risk options and whenever possible (or required) its essential that customers wear a mask and wash their hands regularly. This is a tough time for the restaurant industry and its staff, too, so please, if you do choose to grab a bite, be kind and remember to tip well.

Eater Detroit is doing its best to keep this list updated with new options as menus become available. Email detroit@eater.com if there’s something we’ve missed.

A number of metro Detroit restaurants have resumed in-person service. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: For updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the state of Michigan’s coronavirus tracker. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
