Dec 21 2020, 4:23 pm

As much as it sucks that wild New Year’s Eve parties are out of the question this year, we can’t help but be a little delighted that staying home in sweats, sipping bubbles, and nibbling on cheese is our top option when it comes to activities on the evening of December 31.

Just because we’re not hitting the town doesn’t mean we can’t make things feel special and ring in 2021 in a seriously drool-worthy way, and these food purveyors are going to help us do that.

From spectacular charcuterie spreads to assorted finger foods to die for, here’s where to find the best New Year’s Eve dinners to-go in Portland.
