It’s time to make that New Year’s Eve dinner reservation, don’t you think? Ring in 2011 with a celebratory feast at Fox Restaurant Concepts’ Blanco Tacos + Tequila, Bloom, The Greene House, Modern Steak, NoRTH, or Olive & Ivy, each capable of offering a dining experience that is just as unique as it is festive for the special night.

If you’re not already familiar with all the Fox Restaurant Concepts family of establishments (um, where have you been?), here’s what you need to know:

Blanco Tacos + Tequila serves updated classic Mexican fare reinterpreted with fresh, flavorful, and unique ingredients. Bloom is a boutique-style eatery serving a seasonally changing menu of classic American favorites, with influences from European and Asian cuisines. The Greene House serves California-inspired cuisine, and Modern Steak offers a new twist on the traditional steakhouse.  NoRTH takes its cues from an Italian style trattoria, offering a fresh new approach to modern Italian cuisine. Olive & Ivy blends the flavors and timeless elegance of the Mediterranean with contemporary California chic.

And we figure, if you’re going to be splurging on some extra calories right before you start your new diet/fitness regimen/tennis lessons after the start of the New Year, you might as well make them count, right? Lucky for you we have the skinny on all your delicious options. Now, good luck on trying to get your party to come to a consensus on where to dine for the evening!
