Ring in 2019 at One the Best Restaurants in San Antonio

New Years eve menu at best restaurants in San Antonio

Biga New Year’s Eve

It seems at the blink of an eye 2018 will be only a memory.  Isn’t it time you decided where you will be when the clock strikes 2019? 

At Biga, we understand that there are two distinct ways to ring in the New Year.  Some like to have an intimate dinner and join their friends later in the evening for the stroke of midnight.  Others prefer an evening where dinner is the main event and take a little more time savoring their last bites of the year.

That’s why we’re offering two ways to say goodbye to 2018.

For those with somewhere to be we offer an earlier seating from 5:30 to 7:30pm that will include 4 courses for $65.

Those who are seated after 8:00pm will enjoy a 5 course dinner with live music, party hats & horns and a champagne toast for $100.

Both the early and late seating will have choices for every course and here are some of the items we’ve come up with so far…
