New Year’s Eve 2020 might have been subdued because of pandemic restrictions, but in 2021, Seattle restaurants are making up for it with to-go specials, prix-fixe menus, and in-person celebrations. From Smith Tower’s 1920s-themed party, oysters and caviar at Cafe Hitchcock, and fried chicken party boxes from Pioneer Square D&E, these 11 restaurants are ringing in the new year in style. Reservations are highly encouraged, and make sure to bring proof of vaccination — or a negative COVID-19 test taken within the last 72 hours — as you head out.
Restaurants are listed from north to south.
King County requires proof of vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test within the last 72 hours, for everyone ages 12+ at indoor establishments, restaurants, and bars. Studies indicate there is a lower exposure risk when eating outdoors, and the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
