Gut Check's New Year's Eve Recommendations

Raise a glass (or three) to 2011.
While Gut Check prefers to spend New Year's Eve nursing a bottle of whiskey and another twelve months' worth of accumulated regrets, I suspect more than a few of you plan to ring in 2011 with a fancy prix-fixe dinner and Champagne toast or, at the very least, a good meal at a  favorite restaurant.

For those who would like to dine out on New Year's Eve but have yet to decide where, Gut Check selected some of our favorite restaurants and some classy St. Louis favorites and then asked RFT editorial coordinator Courtney Schilling to find out the specific plans each has for the holiday. Our picks and the details are after the jump.

In addition, we asked each restaurant for its plans (or lack thereof) on Christmas Eve and Day. As you will see, with only a few exceptions, our choices are closed on both days.

Do you know of a restaurant that's open on Christmas Eve or Day? Is it the restaurant you own? Let us know in the comments.
