Nombe's Japanese New Year's Eve Party

Where: Nombe, 2491 Mission (at 21st St.), 681-7150

Cost: $55

Why it's likely to be special: Nombe's second annual Japanese-style sake-soaked New Year's bash is also the swan song for original chef Nick Balla, who's moving on. How do you say "auld lang syne" in Japanese?

Menu highlights: takoyaki (grilled octopus); toshikosi soba; ozouni (chicken mochi soup, a New Year's tradition); a "buffet of Nombe favorites"; and enough sake to make you regret it in the morning

Reserve: Seatings from 10:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.; reservations via OpenTable
