Play Gatsby for a night at The Mansion at Glen Cove. Built on a 55-acre estate built in 1910, its New Years Eve party has become one of the most elegant happenings on Long Island. Unlike last year (when the party was earlier in the night due to Covid concerns), the black tie gala commences at 8pm and will continue past the ball drop. It will be a night full of tasty cocktails, crazy dancing, and a delectable four-course meal. Starters include: crab cakes, French onion soups and roasted beets with goat cheese. For an entree, start 2022 right by ordering the filet mignon with a side of lobster. The meal comes with a complimentary glass of champagne. Call (646) 518-8775 to make a reservation.

This Montauk oceanfront resort at Scarpetta Beach is an iconic venue, first opening its doors in 1926. For the past fifty years, it’s been the go-to New Years Eve spot for many East Enders. This year, there will be live music, passed hors d'oeuvres, a premium open bar and of course, a toast to the New Year with glasses of bubbly. Delicious menu items include Maine lobster, truffle pasta and filet mignon. The bash begins at 8 pm, and you must be 21 years or older to join in on the celebrations. Tickets cost $180 plus tax and gratuity. Enjoy the extravaganza!
Mirabelle, overlooking Stony Brook Harbor, is serving an elaborate seven-course tasting menu for New Years Eve, offered from 5-9 pm. Menu items include roasted halibut with smashed fingerling potatoes and bacon strip, sturgeon steak with green cabbage, fondue and beurre rouge and foie gras torchon with quince paste, toasted pecan-cranberry bread. Optional wine pairing is available as well. The cost is $105 for adults and $160 with wine pairing, plus tax and gratuity. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling the restaurant directly at 631-751-0555. If you can’t make dinner or simply want to go back, you can also attend their New Year’s Day brunch. Pancakes, eggs Benedict, and several atypical brunch foods like oysters and mussels will be served. For a small fee, you can also indulge in unlimited mimosas.
