The Best New Year's Eve Dinners in Toronto

For the best New Year’s Eve you can hope for, it’s best not to dwell on the past but to welcome 2021 with Toronto takeout tailor-made to bring you joy. We all know that 2020 fell shockingly short in every possible way. Enough said. There’s no better way to kick it to the curb than with some of the city’s most devastatingly delicious dishes.

However you choose to spend the last night of this annus horribilis, whether in sweats or bedazzled, sober or otherwise, there’s something to be said of settling in for the night where it’s warm. The other silver lining? With restaurants shuttered for indoor dining, there are myriad options for end-of-year takeout to remember. Even if you love to cook, a night off to support your local faves is a beautiful thing. Resolve to order a cocktail kit, some fine wine and one of these spreads and we guarantee you’ll be more than happy to ring in the new year in your own digs.

Wash your bubbly down with some of the finest ingredients money can buy, or keep it cozy with a comforting, restaurant-quality meal. Whichever you choose, Toronto has the dishes you want to enjoy as you bid a resolute good riddance to 2020.
