Here we are again. It's hard to imagine that an entire year has come and gone. New Year's Eve last year was a low-key event for most of us, with many Miamians hosting small gatherings or toasting on the couch with a bottle of Champagne and Netflix on the tube.
While we're still far from out of the woods, many are planning to celebrate the end of 2021 — and the start of 2022 and the promise we all hope it brings.
If you're up to venturing out, dust off that sparkly outfit and make reservations at one of the many Miami restaurants hosting a New Year's Eve celebration.
Prices listed do not include taxes and gratuities unless noted, reservations are generally requested, and for heaven's sake wear a facemask when you're not actually drinking or stuffing your face.
