—Traditional Italian restaurant Club Lucky, 1824 W. Wabansia Ave., is hosting its 22nd Annual New Year's Eve. Final seating will include live music by The Downtown Charlie Brown Blues Band; hats, noisemakers and streamers for each guest; and one bottle of champagne per couple. Paying the $30 beforehand guarantees seating; call 773-227-2300 or visit www.ClubLuckyChicago.com .

—Zealous, 419 W. Superior St., will end its run of almost two decades New Year's Eve, according to the Chicago Tribune. "It is with a heavy heart," chef Michael Taus emailed, "that I announce Zealous Restaurant has decided not to [sign] a new lease which would increase [rent] three-fold." Taus hinted that he may start a new restaurant after a hiatus. A Windy City Times review of the restaurant is at www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/Zealous-Q-BBQ/40058.html.

—Grace has opened at 652 W. Randolph St. Menus are divided into "flora" and "fauna," with dishes such as the Buddha's Hand (with osetra caviar, kumquat jam and chive blossom) and Scottish salmon (with crispy red cabbage, citrus pudding and marigold). The restaurant offers two eight-12-course chef's tasting menus, one of which highlights vegetables, though it's not entirely vegetarian. See www.grace-restaurant.com .

—The restaurant 2 Sparrows, 553 W. Diversey Pkwy., is hosting beverage dinners on Jan. 18 and 25.

Each dinner begins at 7 p.m.; the Jan. 18 dinner will feature food such as whitefish, sweetbreads and olive oil cake while the Jan. 25 event will have bay scallops, braised goat and caramel-apple upside-down cake, among other things. Call 773-234-2320.

—Sisters Carol Himmel and Diana Himmel—Krewer, are opening Himmel's, a European-style eatery in the heart of Lincoln Square at 2251 W. Lawrence Ave., on Jan. 1.

—The Oakbrook Terrace location of Ditka's Restaurant will have a three-course New Year's Eve dinner for two ($99, not including beverages, tax or gratuity) that includes crab bisque or Caesar salad; "Da Pork Chop," filet mignon, prime rib or Tasmanian king salmon; and ice cream, flourless chocolate cake or key lime "icebox" pie.

Wacker Dr.), and Sweetwater Tavern and Grille (225 N. Michigan Ave.)—is offering "Naughty vs. Nice" holiday beer menus.
