For foodies, dinner-instagrammers and chef groupies, there's no better way to welcome 2013 than indulging in a prix-fixe menu or family-style feast at some of LA's most celebrated restaurants.
Mo-Chica in downtown LA is offering a family-style menu with items like quinoa fried chicken and uni and scallop tiraditos. Rustic Canyon in Santa Monica is on the same wavelength, serving up shared small plates like oysters on the half-shell or roasted pork belly. For those who want to eat and party, Fig & Olive in West Hollywood has a four-course prix-fixe menu and big bash with a DJ, bottle service and a countdown.
So if the thought of clubbing the night away fills you with dread, check out our list of the best menus around town for a delicious New Year's Eve dinner. And if you're more of a best-of-both-worlds Angeleno, consider an early dinner seating before hitting Hollywood to watch the ball drop.
Happy New Year!
