Where to go for cennone di capo d'anno (New Year's eve dinner) in Venice 2011?

I just had a very unpleasant surprise. I went ahead and email Da Fiore on November 23rd. They said they have space and need my credit card, which I immediately provided. I even followed up the next day by email to make sure they received it. Never heard back... today I just get an email saying that they are full! I dealt with them entirely in Italian, so it's not even about a stupid tourist. Now I have nothing for the most important dinenr of the trip and it's with both of my parents!

Antiche Carampane replied the following: they will know the menu in early December, it is 130 per person. They require 60 euros deposit beforehand. They are not very fast with email replies, but be persistent.

That sounds great. I also found that a small place is a favorite of many friends: trattoria di antiche carampane, has a menu for only 130 euros.

Thank you very much for the extensive reply. From the ones I read about in general, i did get a few replies saying they were closed for New year's. I read of two places where food was recommended: antiche carampane and osteria garanghelo that responded that they are open for New Year's. Perhaps I should also check with Cavellino. Many thanks.

I will be in Venice for 10 days over New Year's with my parents. I'd like to go to a nice cennone with the midbight brindisi and all, but not at 300 euros per person. Is it possible to find something in teh 100 or 150 euros a person? Thank you.

Sushi Taro recs

I am a little confused by the sushi counter menu and would love some help in understanding this. The reviews said that even at the sushi counter they serve not just sushi but other things. Are those included in the minimum price? Is the variability in price about $100 based on the amount of actual sushi you get? Does sushi/sashimi have a good selection? I do not like cooked fish - do they cook/sear some of those? Can you pick suhsi as you go or do you select it all at once? Thank you.
