Champagne with steaks for NYE?

My boyfriend has announced that he is bringing a couple bottles of French champagne over for NYE. I am going to cook him a fancy pants dinner. For apps I will go with either salmon mousse or shrimp cocktail. But for the entree I was thinking of maybe grilling some nice steaks and making a bearnaise sauce or maybe doing a rack of lamb or even grilling a duck. Since it is just the 2 of us I don't want to have champagne open and then open a bottle of red wine for dinner also (plus I don't want to rain on his contribution). Will the champagne be just awful with any of those dishes? I don't know how to get around this without changing my menu. Somehow chicken doesn't seem very elegant and festive.
