If you prefer to leave the cooking to someone else when you ring in 2023, consider ordering your New Year’s Eve dinner or party food, or your New Year’s Day meal, from a grocery store, caterer, or restaurant.
We’ve put together a list of businesses in the Charlotte area where you can order a fully-cooked New Year’s meal.
In many cases, you’ll pick up the meal in advance, and you’ll heat it up yourself. In all cases you need to order in advance.
We will be adding more information to this list as we receive it!
