FoodWire: New Year's Eve at Big Sky Café

Dec 30, 2008 at 3:09 pm

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

Big Sky Café (47 South Old Orchard Avenue) is hosting a three-course prix-fixe dinner on New Year's Eve. (The regular menu is available, too.) The cost is $37 per person, and Kelly Donovan from the All Great Restaurants group lets me know that there are still a few reservations available. Call 314-962-5757 for more info.

The prix-fixe menu is available after the jump.
