NYE Special in the Triangle... which do you recommend or interest you the most?

So I've been looking at various food blogs and searching general restaurants that I may like to hit for a special occasion and saw some that are offering tempting (based on the food) offers. Would like your thoughts on what you've experienced from local establishments and whether the price fits the agenda or is it better just to go see the Acorn drop in downtown Raleigh? Anyways, what are you suggestions for New Years?

      My wife and I really enjoyed last year at Piedmont.

      Given the menu we're tempted to go back

        So after much deliberating and being told by several places that they are booked, we will be at GlassHalfFull. Should be interesting. I know they do small plates for regular service. I'm sorta hoping that isn't the case for New Years. Wondering what Elaine's menu for NYE is and also if Bonne Soiree woiuld be doing anything.

            What I don't understand is why the places that are doing a NYE special or a NY brunch don't advertise it that well on their site or as the case with Mint, wait til the last minute. Some places say they are doing a NYE special but then don't post the menu which is also pretty dumb IMO.

              No kidding!! I've been trying to figure out what's going on, but even yesterday's INDY had very little with regards to restaurant goings-on. At this point, I think we'll be making dinner at home.
