You don’t have to wait for Restaurant Week to find fixed-price dinners that offer value and great food. Prix-fixe dinners are great because they take the work out of deciding what to have and cover you from soup to nuts. You also know ahead of time what your bill will look like. Here are a few suggestions to get you started.
