As many special New Year's Eve menus as Gut Check can find.

Atlas (5513 Pershing Avenue) -- one of my personal favorites -- is hosting a three-course prix-fixe dinner on New Year's Eve. Guests select one of six appetizers, one of five main courses and one of five desserts. The cost is $54 per person, tax, tip and drinks not included. Call 314-367-6800 for reservations or more information.

The complete prix-fixe menu is available after the jump...

Restaurateurs: Don't be shy! Send your New Year's Eve menus to Gut Check.
