Cafe Dupont for New Year's Eve???

birminghamvisitor | Dec 23, 2008 11:38 AM

So the wife and I decided to do something special for New Years Eve this year and go to one of the really nice restraunts in Birmingham for Dinner.

I pretty much narowed it down to 3 places: Hot and Hot, Highlands, and Cafe Dupont.

Well I called Dupont to make the reservation today and the New Years Eve menu is a 4 course set menu for $85 per person...ouch. I expected to drop a little cash on this dinner obviously, but is it really worh $85 per person?

So my basic question is this... Is Cafe Dupont worth 170 + drinks + tax + tip, or would I be better off going with some other place and trying Dupont on another night? Or is that typical of what you can expect to spend?

For what it is worth after a little research, Hot and Hot is $100/person and Highlands is fully booked.

Another thought...Veranda. But it is about the same price, and I am a bit more intrigued by Cafe Dupont.

Thanks for your responses!
