Ribelle Turns Chinese for a Night

You know Ribelle. It’s that Brookline restaurant that’s not a Chinese restaurant unless chef Tim Maslow decides it is for New Year’s Eve only by teaming up with a fellow Momofuku alum to serve a five-course Chinese New Year’s dinner with Peking duck and black sesame ice cream. Then it is.

We Found All the Meat and Champagne

You’ve only got a few hours of 2013 left. Best to spend them in the direct vicinity of as many meat-carving stations, dessert spreads and units of champagne you can find. And we hear the Fairmont Battery Wharf might have all that stuff. This just in: it will. It definitely will.

Your NYE Go-To for Gatsby-Era Imbibery

So this “2014” is happening after all. And speakeasy-gastropub Stoddard’s is the only place where you can celebrate it. Okay, so you can celebrate it anywhere. But they’ll still be serving up Gatsby-era cocktails and projecting the countdown on a 60-foot screen. Which did not come from the Gatsby era.

OUT TO DRUNCH

Beer-Bacon Biscuits. 2014 Is All Right.

There’s an old superstition that goes: if you don’t start the new year by consuming beer-bacon biscuits and something called “drunk soup” (hint: noodles) at West Bridge’s “Drunch,” your next year will not be full of good fortune. Better safe than sorry.

Jan 1, noon-4pm, $36/person, West Bridge, 1 Kendall Sq, Cambridge, 617-945-0221
