Where to Spend New Year’s Eve in Delaware

New Year’s Eve celebrations look different this year, but some local restaurants are offering takeout specials and prix fixe menus to welcome 2021.

What a year! 2020 is coming to a close, and Delaware’s restaurants are ready to celebrate—in a safe way. Staying out at your favorite local establishment all night isn’t in the cards this year while the state’s current COVID-19 guidelines require local bars and restaurants to close by 10 p.m. Instead, consider grabbing dinner earlier in the evening or food to-go for when you watch the ball drop at midnight from the comfort of your home.
