You've got four days, New York—four days until your New Year's resolutions kick in and you'll have to give up chocolate, carbohydrates and all of the other glorious foodstuffs that make life worth living. So make those four days count, damn it, by eating your way through the year's most gut-busting dishes, the nap-inducing, Instagram-worthy plates that could bring out the glutton in even the most virtuous of diners. Better break out the stretchy pants.
Egg-clipse at Dominique Ansel Kitchen
Forget basic eggs and toast—we'll be starting off the last days of 2015 with squid-ink brioche slathered with garlic mashed potatoes, mushroom bechamel, confit eggs and copious amounts of Parmesan, thank you very much.
Foie-stuffed wings at Mu Ramen
Deep-fried chicken wings are already plenty gluttonous, but husband-and-wife team Joshua and Heidy Smookler take it up a notch by deboning their bird and stuffing it generously with foie gras, brioche chunks and quince compote before it hits the fryer.
Raclette at Raclette
The only vegetables we plan on eating until 2016 are the kind smothered in cascading ribbons of molten cheese. Judge us.
Caviar tots at PDT
Now this is what we call snacking in style—a collaboration with Russ & Daughters, the bar bite features a mountain of crispy tots accompanied by crème fraîche and, yes, a cool 50 grams of paddlefish caviar.
The Doh! Nut at PYT Burger
A cheeseburger topped with chocolate-covered bacon and crammed inside a sliced glazed doughnut—your arteries should be quivering in fear right about now.
Okonomiyaki at Okiyway
Garden-variety okonomiyaki could already put a full-grown man into a food coma under the weight of kewpie mayonnaise, barbecue sauce and bonito flakes. But Okiway one-ups the classic Japanese pancake by giving it a Mexican accent, with chorizo, avocado and messy squiggles of chipotle mayo and cilantro crema.
Walt & the Blackbirds at Ample Hills
We'll be dreaming about this gonzo pie collaboration between Ample Hills and Four & Twenty Blackbirds—topping Salty Honey chess pie with three pints of Nonna D's Oatmeal Lace ice cream, multiple layers of hot fudge and crumbles of Ample's patented Crack Cookies—until Thanksgiving 2016.
Foie gras with chocolate chip at O Ya
How do you celebrate dropping $185 for a meal like a boss? With seared Hudson Valley foie glazed in chocolate-shot eel sauce, dressed with raisin-cocoa pulp and served with a chaser of eight-year-aged sake, that's how.
Uni mazeman at Jun-Men Ramen
Like a Stefon sketch, these next-level noodles have everything: roasted pancetta, porcini butter, truffle oil, parmesan cheese and, oh yeah, a few decadently rich lobes of uni for good measure.
Everything bagel doughnuts at Flex Mussels
All of our breakfast-loving fat-kid dreams come true in these savory, everything-bagel–seasoned doughnuts piped with scallion cream-cheese filling.
