Miami New Year's Eve 2011 Dinner Specials

If you are thinking of ringing in 2011 with a good dinner, now is the time to secure a reservation. In fact, some restaurants are already booked solid -- Thinking of celebrating at Area 31? Think again. However, there is still plenty out there to choose from. Here are some of the better deals out there, all, of course, with the requisite New Year's Eve price hike.

Fontainebleau: Gotham Steak, Scarpetta, and Hakkasan

We'll start out by saying all the expensive dining packages at the three restaurants, which went for $295 per person, are sold out. That will save you from deciding whether to choose the four- or five-course dinners -- except for Hakkasan which will be serving family-style.
