It’s one of the most popular nights of the year to go out, but after all the December gatherings, many of us are a little bit worn out by the time New Year’s Eve rolls around. It’s the perfect night to stay home – or just to have a quiet dinner at a nice restaurant with someone you love.

While the bars will surely be hopping this year after last year’s quarantines, our local fine dining restaurants might be a little bit more quiet. Try one of these classy venues for a spectacular setting to ring in the new year. NOCO – Located 20 minutes away from your Alston apartment in St. James, NOCO strives to constantly rediscover new American cuisine in a fine dining setting for its lucky patrons. The NOCO family is committed to supporting our local communities, including local farms, fisherman and other small businesses.  They only serve all natural organic and sustainable products whenever available, so you can expect a fresh, flavorful meal to start off the new year. Make sure you make reservations if you plan on heading over on NYE – this small but chic venue fills up pretty fast! Le Soir – Less than 15 minutes south from your Alston apartment is Le Soir, a beautiful French restaurant in charming Bayport. Where better to start one of the most important nights of the year than at “The Evening”? This authentic French restaurant gives you a true fine dining experience in a charming but chic little cottage. With light filled rooms and Christmas lights covering the beautiful gardens, it’s a magical setting to start off 2022. Make you reservations now, with so few true French restaurants in our area, this local restaurant is very in demand this time of year.
