New Year’s Eve without kids

[ 0 ] December 18, 2007 |

Andrews BistroIf you can rustle up a babysitter, here is a delicious and delightful option for those looking to celebrate New Year’s Eve without the kids. Support local talent, as I always like to do, and consider heading to Andrew’s Bistro in Cumberland Rhode Island on December 31, 2007 to enjoy a gourmet dinner and live music entertainment.

The restaurant’s culinary experts have created a six-course dinner menu, with choices offered for each course. Lobster Bisque, Portabella Napoleon, Roasted Rack of Lamb, Sole Scandia, and Mother Earth Rhapsody are but a few of the dishes that caught my attention. And for sure, dinner will end on a sweet note with the pastry chef’s creations. Complete details on their New Year’s Eve menu are available on their website.

Musical entertainment includes, Lino del Signore (Rhode Island based entertainer, guitarist and vocalist) and the Bertrand Laurence and Marc Chenevert duet. With their guitar and clarinet, the duet will perform French songs in English, American Folk and Jazz songs in French, and original compositions in Frenglish. Decades of music will be spanned, starting from the 1920s, both American with Swing, and Parisian with Musette Waltzes. All the way to the count-down to 2008!

Open for just over a year, Andrew’s Bistro has quickly become a favorite of diners locally and for those who know it’s worth driving a distance for exceptional food. The owner, Andrew Aytac, who has dedicated over twenty years to fine dining and hospitality, knows how to create a delicious dining experience and offer affordable choices without sacrificing freshness and quality, in a warm, stylish and unpretentious atmosphere. The Executive Chef Brian Condron, whose European training and decades of experience show in every aspect of the menus. Their regular menu (lunch and dinner) features classic French and Italian dishes, New American cuisine, and in-house creations as well.

Cooking (and professional service) is an art that I admire. I highly recommend this restaurant. As you and your friends make plans for New Year’s Eve, consider Andrew’s Bistro – “… a gem of a restaurant” according to the Providence Journal.
