PROVIDENCE – New restaurants will open their doors and eateries new and old throughout the state will feature special menus at bargain prices to kick off 2019.
Skyline at Waterplace in Providence is relaunching in mid-January as Dine with Skyline. A spokesperson for the restaurant said the proprietor is renovating the space to provide guests with what is described as “a Miami-chic dining experience” and the facility will be exclusively a restaurant, unlike the prior dual-use event space/restaurant.
Dine with Skyline will be a participant in the winter edition of Providence Restaurant Weeks, which will begin on Jan. 13, in which nearly 100 restaurants will provide three-course lunches for the same reduced price of $16.95 and three-course dinners for $29.95 – or $34.95 with the addition of extras, such as craft cocktails – for a two-week span. Some restaurants will also offer two-for-one specials at the fixed price. For more information, visit providencerestaurantweeks.com.
Beginning Jan. 10, the Boston Wine Festival kicks off with a gala hosted by founding chef Daniel Bruce, executive chef of the Boston Harbor Hotel, which hosts the opening event. The festival continues with tastings and dinners at numerous restaurants throughout the city through March. More information is available at bostonwinefestival.net.
In late January, Mohegan Sun will host the Sun Wine and Food Fest, a four-day gala event highlighting some of the personalities whose names are on the Uncasville, Conn., casino’s in-house dining, including Bobby Flay, Marcus Samuelsson, Alex Guarnaschelli, Jason Santos and Rocco DiSpirito. A Grand Tasting will be featured as well as seminars and a celebrity chef dine-around. More information may be found at the casino’s website.
