New Year’s Eve is one of the biggest nights of the year for restaurants, second only to Valentine’s Day. Almost every mid-market and high-end restaurant will roll out prix fixe dinners or a special menu.
Tables are hard to come by, so get online now and get busy. Below are some of the special dinners happening around town on the big night. Visit restaurant websites for more complete menu details and reservation information.
The new Yucatán-inspired restaurant from “Top Chef” winner chef Gabe Erales will serve a fixed six-course menu, which includes a champagne toast. Menu includes stone crab chileatole, cured scallop and tenderloin with caramelized squash. Cost is $150. (44 East Ave., (512) 517-1656, bacalaratx.com)
