should restaurants tell you they're serving "special menu"?

I'm just curious. Called to make reservations for New Year's Eve. When we arrived, with EXTREMELY picky 15-year-old son, were told they had a special menu. Prix fixe, 3 courses, $48. Entree choices: prime rib, salmon, duck. Uh-oh. Our son is stictly chicken nugget, spaghetti, burgers. So we decided to leave. Explained the problem to waiter and host, apologized, and headed for our neighborhood pizzeria. So what do you think? When you call for a reservation, should the restaurant tell you if they're serving a special menu?
