The end is near. Of course, we mean the close of the holidays and the year 2010, and hopefully you have plans. If that sentence made you suddenly red-faced, flushed with frustration and fear, then The Grape (2808 Greenville Ave.) has a special for you. Chef and owner Brian C. Luscher features a Christmas Eve menu of "holiday inspired fare," as well as a price-fixed three-course dinner on New Year's Eve ($65) with optional wine pairings. Doors open early (5 p.m.) for those suckers and spots fill up quickly, so hurry to make reservations. For details, call 214-828-1981 or visit thegraperestaurant.com.
