As 2012 comes to a close, Amelia's is inviting residents of the Forest Park community and surrounding areas to its New Year’s Eve dinner on Dec. 31. Savoring the restaurant’s fixed-price, six-course dinner with family and friends would be a great way to enjoy the last hours of the year and celebrate the beginning of 2013.
"We are never sure what to do on New Year’s when we are not working," Sarah Amelia Houhoulis, owner of Amelia’s, said. "We decided we could include an all-inclusive New Year's Eve night at Amelia's for a good price. Good food and drink, reasonable prices, open late--that's what we'd want!"
The six-course dinner is a fixed $40 per person with an option to add wine pairings to each course for an extra $25. Various other drink specials are available if people decide not to do wine pairings, but everyone will be included in the midnight toast to 2013! With Amelia's reputation for serving only the best cuisine, the New Year's Eve dinner promises to be a truly filling and pleasurable meal for everyone. The dinner menu will be Maryland Crab/Avocado salad, Prince Edward Island Mussels, Jumbo Scallop w/ lobster broth, Chicken Fried South Carolina Quail, Yankee Pot Roast and a choice of dessert.
