It’s been quite the year.
Whether you’re staying up late to welcome in 2021 or to make doubly sure that 2020 is finally over, if you don’t fancy cooking there’s a variety of tasty options for the final meal of a very difficult 12 months.
Leave the cooking and prep to the experts and place an order for a New Year’s Eve feast.
Here are five delicious options that are ideal for a cosy toast in front of the telly:
1. Afternoon tea to go
If it’s sweet treats and fancy savoury bites you’re after, the Montenotte Hotel is bringing back their Call & Collect Afternoon Tea from December 30th until January 3rd and every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in January.
Designed to lavishly treat two people, the carryout box is curated by the hotel’s new Executive Chef Tabrez Shaikh. It’s €55 per stand including takeaway tea and coffee with collections available from 12pm until 3pm.
To place your order call the hotel on 021 453 0050, pay by card, book your pickup slot, and collect. Find out more here.
2. A New Year’s Eve party for two
Over on the South Mall, Electric is packing up New Year’s Eve Party Boxes for collection on December 31st from 6pm-8pm. Each box of goodies serves two people and you can choose from an Asian-inspired meal, a Charcuterie selection or a Combo Box of crispy chicken wings, deep-fried brie, curried fish bites and beef croquettes with dips.
