New Year’s Eve Party Package ($325 plus fees)

There is no place more glamorous to celebrate the New Year than at The Veranda. Revel in a sense of wonderment while sitting beneath the eatery’s open-air setting and partake in its vast assortment of hors d’ oeuvres, craft cocktails and wide selections of wine, sake and more.

On the menu for Dec. 31 and Jan. 1, seafood takes the spotlight. Choose from five choices of sushi, including Ahi ($8), Hamachi ($8) or Salmon ($6) Nigiri Sushi; a Sashimi ($25) or Sushi ($22) Sampler with chef’s daily selections; Spicy Ahi Roll ($15); or Crab California Roll ($18).

For fancier fare, try a Caviar Service for Two ($185), which encompasses Warm Blinis, Chives, Crème Fraîche and Regiis Ova Caviar, created by Shaoching Bishop and chef Thomas Keller.

Those with a sweet tooth, meanwhile, can delight in one of four options, including a Pineapple Upside Down Cake ($15) and Gâteau “Banana Cream Pie” ($15), Profiterole ($15) and Hoku’s Warm Chocolate Coulant ($15).

Guests who are staying at The Kahala Hotel & Resort have the option of partying social distance-style with a special New Year’s Eve Party Package ($325 plus fees). Expect a caviar experience for two, Kahala’s signature champagne, sprinkle cake pops, truffle popcorn, as well as party hats, noisemakers and eyewear. Room service will be delivered from 5 to 9 p.m. Dec. 31, and reservations must be made in advance by calling the concierge desk at 739-8911.
