A New Year’s Eve Weekend in Williamsburg

If you celebrate Christmas, we hope you had a very merry one this past weekend! But the holidays aren’t quite over yet—there’s still a New Year to ring in with your closest friends and loved ones. If you happen to be staying at King’s Creek Plantation in Williamsburg this weekend, we can help you have a truly memorable New Year’s Eve and Day. After all, the only way to live is to celebrate!

Staying with old friends? Having a family-only New Year’s bash? Either way, you’ve got a great weekend ahead.

First, some dining options:

 

New Year’s Eve Dinner at Opus 9 Steakhouse

4:30 - 11 p.m.
It may seem like a bold claim, but you have not lived until you’ve experienced the culinary wonders of Opus 9 Steakhouse. This New Year’s Eve, their menu offers appetizers like duck confit ragout with Parmesan gnocchi (!) and entrées like lobster prosciutto ravioli with rainbow chard, arugula and sherry cream (!!). Call 757-645-4779 to make your reservation.

If you can’t make it to dinner, you can still catch a mouthwatering brunch buffet at Opus 9 on New Year’s Day, which will also make a first-timer’s life complete. Click here to see the amazing menu.
