The place you choose to eat the last meal of 2022 can be just as auspicious as the resolutions for the following day. Eater is here to make sure everyone is well-informed to make the right decision.

Here is a guide to the very best Austin restaurants offering celebratory New Year’s Eve meals where everyone can dine in style. Ring in 2022 with a decadent feast from Lenoir in its newly opened dining room, a botanas party at Suerte, and so much more. Some options are prix fixe, many include a complimentary champagne toast at midnight, and all ensure everyone will be well-fed during the journey into 2022.

Everything below takes place on Friday, December 31. Make those reservations quickly as these will book up fast.

For those looking for more New Year’s plans, there are New Year’s Eve parties and takeout, as well as New Year’s Day brunch options.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each business is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurant themselves.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
