New Year's Eve

Eat Like A King This NYE

Ring in 2015 with a glass of bubbly and a delicious meal


There always seems to be so much pressure associated with New Year's Eve - pressure to have the best night ever, pressure to celebrate with various friend/family groups - and all this pressure and these heightened expectations build up and inevitably explode like a midnight firework, sans the enjoyment.

Well, no more! This year, why not make a cozy reservation, whether for yourself, for you and that special someone, or for a whole bunch of pals. So many Rhode Island restaurants offer amazing NYE specials (which of course come with that obligatory glass of bubbles).

Relax, grab a glass of champs, and cheers to a blissful end to 2014. Happy New Year!
