These four restaurants are doing incredible NYE takeout platters

Aburi Hana

Executive chef Ryusuke Nakagawa has created a series of bespoke tiers that are presented in traditional ojubako vessels. All three tiers contain an assortment of fresh fish from around the world, expertly sliced and delicately balanced atop rice and finished with garnishes that include truffle sauce, black caviar, edible florals, and more. Aburi Hana‘s New Year’s Eve Oju dinner contains more than 100 pieces of sushi and sashimi, and all comes wrapped in furoshiki (traditional Japanese wrapping cloths) and costs $800. Wine pairings can be added to your takeout offer, with select pairings starting at $140.
