Where to Spend New Year’s Eve in Brooklyn


Talde/Thistle/Pork Slope: Dale Talde and co. are going big for NYE with three entirely separate concepts at each of their Park Slope spots. The classic Bensonhurst dinner at Pork Slope will appeal to dyed-in-the-wool Brooklynites, featuring old-school courses like Clam Casino, complimentary Prosecco, and dance tunes courtesy of DJ Pauley Alphabets. Champagne will be flowing at the swinging Great Gatsby-themed celebration at Thistle Hill Tavern (along with canapés and Waldorf lobster bisque), and a homestyle Filipino feast is slated for Talde, including lumpia (spring roll) tastings, pancit molo (pork and shrimp wonton soup), and duck adobo with duck arrozcaldo (rice porridge) and duck insal (barbecue).

Pork Slope: 247 5th Ave., (718) 768-7675

Thistle Hill Tavern: 441 7th Ave., (347) 599-1262

Talde: 369 7th Ave., (347) 916-0031



  1. “Who says French restaurants can’t do vegan?! Well, my friend Peter, a hardcore French chef, for one… But not Three Letters in Brooklyn! Located in Clinton Hill, Three Letters is not a vegan restaurant but they have pretty awesome-sounding vegan options. Their chef, Pip, emailed us to let us know that in addition to an omni tasting menu this New Year’s Eve, they are having an all-vegan tasting menu! The theme is “French takes on southern American traditions.” It sounds OUT OF SIGHT!” http://vegansaurus.com/post/70207327464
