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

Starbelly's A La Carte/Prix Fixe NYE

Where: Starbelly, 3583 16th St. (at Market)

Cost: Individual dishes as quoted, or $66 for the four-course prix fixe

Why it's likely to be special: We like the flexibility here ― show up for a full-scale New Year's Eve production, or celebrate over apps, a bottle of Champagne, and dessert. Why start 2011 even deeper in debt?

Menu highlights: Sonoma foie gras flan with port wine caramel ($17); truffled duck egg pot de crème ($10); venison wrapped with house-cured bacon, served with peppered spaetzle ($33); Meyer lemon panna cotta ($11)

Reserve: First tables at 5 p.m.; last seating at 8 p.m. Call 252-7500
