The 2012 Atlanta New Year's Eve Dining Guide

View as Map
Watershed on Peachtree.

Well, the world didn't end on December 21, and now it's time to party once again: this time for the start of the new year! It's almost 2013, and if you're not feeling the bar circuit or don't want to wait in line for half an hour to get a drink, perhaps a nice dinner out on the town is the best way to watch the clock tick down to midnight. Many restaurants are offering special menus (reservations highly recommended), most of which include a glass of something bubbly for a toast. Of note: New Year's Eve also happens to be Pura Vida's very last day of service, which means it's also the last time you can get pork belly buns. However you choose to spend the evening, we hope you have a wonderful time ringing in the New Year.
