Looking for restaurants that offer "deals" on certain nights of the week...
Ok, I'm on a budget, I admit it. So I'm looking for any restaurants that offer deals on certain nights of the week....anywhere in L.A. In Burbank, Bistro Provence has a family night Thursday, four courses for under $25. Michael's Bar & Grill in Burbank has half price appetizers on Tuesday nights...so you get my drift. I'm looking for places that offer discounts or special discounted menu nights anywhere in L.A., I need to cut down on my restaurant spending!!! Thank you all!!
It's not on any particular night. But Opus next to the Wiltern just got a new chef and a new menu. They offer a spontaneous tasting menu. I stopped by there last week to meet folks for drinks and some grub and noticed a lot of people doing the tasting menu. So I had to try it out myself tonight. They offer 3,6 and 9 course. So I met a friend of mine tonight since I was so impressed by the food last week. We ended up doing a 3 course for $30.00 each. Definitely a deal. I had the hamachi with lardon, some kind of seaweed and lemon oil. Vrey fresh and quite different from the usual hamachi. Also got the pan seared john dory on charred romaine and sweet and sour cherries. Then got the infamous short ribs on cream of wheat and a red wine sauce. Ended up with dessert which was a chocolate molten cake with homemade ice cream and hazelnuts. Quite the deal for $30. I think the chef might have thrown in an extra course. Portions are extremely generous for tasting portions. I suggest checking it out before it gets packed when the word gets out.

If you go, try the spinach-curried-lentil salad. I am Indian and if I ever had something "curry" done right in a non-Indian restaurant, this was it. The bread pudding was phenomenal!
