New Year's Eve at Ouisie's
The chef at Ouisie's will prepare a special menu for New Year's Eve, but unlike
so many other restaurants, there will be no minimum charge for several
courses and no pre set seating times. It's dinner as usual, with the addition of
a special menu to celebrate the holiday.

New Year's Eve at Home
Pick up box lunches from Picnic, throw a blanket out in front of a fire, add a bottle of champagne and rejoice in the comfort of your own home. If the evening proves too warm for a fire, replace the firewood in your fireplace with tall, wide candles. Add a few Christmas poppers (on sale at Bering's and Williams Sonoma after Christmas) and you're set for midnight. Great plan for including the kids -- PICNIC also offers box lunches for children. PICNIC is normally open until 5:00pm weekdays, but may close "a little early" on the 31st. Place your lunch box order a day or so ahead, and pick up by 3:00pm. Delivery is available.
