Celebrate New Years Eve in Midtown Raleigh

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

new year clock DT 43053064

The Holiday Season is the most wonderful time of the year for family and for friends. Christmas is fast approaching and many of us are looking forward to New Year’s Eve as well and the year-end festivities. It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of 2014, and beginning 2015. With so many plans, reflections, and resolutions to make, December 31 is a day filled with great new feelings, awesome food, fun conversation, and dinner. Mia Francesca offers our delightful, relaxing New Year’s Eve dinner just for two or for the crowd you love to be around to celebrate 2015.

At Mia Francesca Trattoria, our authentic Northern Italian cuisine offers the freshest farm and sea to table experience in the Triangle. Located at North Hills in Midtown Raleigh (exit 8 440 the Beltline), our rustic Italian restaurant allows guests to savor the traditions of the Tuscany region of Italy without having to travel abroad. We invite our holiday guests to enjoy our New Year’s Eve festivities and start the New Year right!

We recommend kicking the afternoon and evening off with one of our delicious appetizers. When New Year’s Eve guests ask for our fresh Prince Edward Island Mussels, they have the option of having them served with garlic and a spicy marinara sauce or with a garlic white wine sauce. Either way, they are a Raleigh favorite!

For the main course this New Year’s Eve night, we have many delicious items on our dinner menu. One local favorite is our Filetto e Polenta Fritto. This dish includes our savory grilled beef tenderloin, sage brown butter polenta cakes (an Italian delicacy), sautéed winter squash, charred onions, and herb butter.

As the countdown on the clock continues to midnight, try our Apple Crostata dessert featuring local farm fresh Granny Smith apples in a flaky pastry crust. We serve this warm with salted caramel gelato and vanilla crème anglaise. Sip our wonderful Illy brand coffee choices including Cappuccino, Espresso, Espresso Macchiato, Caramel Macchiato, and Mocha-cino.

As Father Time’s hourglass runs out of 2014 sand, it is out with the old and in with the new. Make your New Year’s resolution to dine more often at Mia Francesca Trattoria. And say cheers to more treasured memories with loved ones, at the best restaurant in the Triangle. Make your New Year’s reservations today!

Please consider joining us for Christmas Eve as well. Here is an offering of our menu on December 24th.
