Where to ring in the New Year

Depending on how much you want to spend, you have a lot of options for how where to eat out on New Year’s Eve.

Michael Smith has six seatings. The first three are at 6, 6:30, and 7 p.m., with a four-course meal costing $75 per person. The second set is at 8, 8:30, and 9 p.m., with a five-course menu for $95 per person — and that includes a champagne toast. The menu is highlighted by foie gras tortellini in a prosciutto brodo, a seared blue fin tuna in a romesco sauce with lobster stuffed piquillo pepper and a slow cooked veal “steak” with braised bacon, spaetzle and broccolini in a natural reduction sauce.

Cafe Europa offers a three-course menu for $45. There’s the favorites menu, with the roasted beet salad, scallops and wild mushroom risotto, and the lemon cake. But there’s also a chef’s choice menu (smoked salmon, foie gras stuffed quail, and fried huckleberry pie with oatmeal ice cream) and a holiday favorites menu (caviar with buckwheat blinis, filet mignon, and frozen chocolate terrine). Or you can mix and match from all three as a guest’s choice option. The Crestwood restaurant will have seatings between 5:30 and 10 p.m. on New Year’s Eve.
