More options for your end-of-year dining-out consideration.

Co Co. Sala's "six senses" menu is available beginning at 5:30 on New Year's Eve.

On Tuesday, we published part one of our New Year’s Eve restaurant dining guide, which included opportunities to dance off many courses worth of calories at Zaytinya, and drink a free glass of cava at Estadio.
