Better Than a Ball Drop: New Year's Eve at Prospect

Prospect's New Year's Eve Prix Fixe

Where: Prospect, 300 Spear (at Folsom), 247-7770

Cost: First seating (6-7:15 p.m.), $85; second seating (8:15-10 p.m.), $105 (includes party favors and Champagne toast at midnight) Note: a la carte menu available for walk-ins in the bar/lounge/community table area

Why it's likely to be special: Chef Ravi Kapur is a beautiful technician, and New Year's Eve gives him a chance to turn his hand to extra-luxe ingredients. And considering Prospect's regular menu prices, NYE looks to be a bit of a bargain ― if you've got the cash

Menu highlights: Chilled Dungeness crab with kaffir lime; Maine lobster risotto; roast squab with gnocchi and braised oxtail; local halibut with King crab hollandaise; quail stuffed with chestnuts; 20-hour apple terrine
