On last week's Ask the Critic, Carey recommend restaurants for a New Years Eve that doesn't suck:

Every year, I get a hundred press releases (and that's a conservative estimate) about Christmas and New Year's, Eve and Day both--special menus, ticketed parties, 3-course prix fixes, 8-course tasting menus... the list goes on. And every year I think, "I wish the restaurants that weren't changing a damn thing would send me a press release."

Where to feed them? Read her suggestions here (and take note for next year).
