looking for restaurants that have price-fixe menus either once-a-week or daily?
which ones offer either the best menu items or specials and of course best bang for your buck? flat-out any price-fixe not worth missing? thanks

    I actually like Lucques Sunday Supper. Menu is posted weekly on their website.

      Foodandwine -- My absolute favorite. You can get such a great, thoughful, and delicious meal at one of the best restaurants in the city for $40!

      Jiraffe has a great Monday Night Bistro but I can't remember the pricing. I've been there on several Mondays and I've always enjoyed the meal.

      Violet (which I'm not wild about) does a prix fixe thing on Sundays, too. It's $35 all together if you get the glass of wine with unlimited refills ($25 with out wine).

      Jar does Mozzarella Mondays but that's not a prix fixe menu. It is worth mentioning though.

        Jiraffe's Monday Night menu runs $35 and is generally quite nice.

          Jiraffe's Monday Night Bistro is definitely a deal. The food is wonderful and the portions are larger than you would expect.

        Dominick's has a Supper Sunday also - $15 for 3-courses and $10 bottles of house wine.

          Lou on Vine does a $55 supper on Monday nights that includes wine pairings w/each course. I went during the winter, when the main course was cassoulet (yum); if you get on the mailing list (which you can do through the website), you'll get an email a few days ahead of Monday telling you what will be served that week.

              Joe's, on Abbot Kinney in Venice, has a nightly prix fixe and a tasting menu, with the latter having a few more courses than the former. I thought it was fairly priced for the quality of the dishes we received (online, it's showing the prix fixe at $61 and the tasting menu at $75, although the listed courses themselves are old).

              (What was particularly nice was that everyone at our table ordered the tasting menu, save one person who got the prix fixe.. and the kitchen sent out the amuse and the amuse dessert for her as well so that she didn't feel left out.)

                Campanile offers a three course "Family" dinner for $40. The selection changes each Monday and is available for solo diners. Most of the items have been quite good.

                      For dinner, I was referring for lunch.

                        Sorry, skipped right over the "lunch" part of your post.

                          Is the prixe fixe offered on a paticular day? Also is there any way to know what the menu is going to be in advance?

                          Thanks

                            The dinner prix fixe is offered any day, (as far as I know) and it's on the menu. I don't know about lunch.

                    There's the $26 three-course prix fixe at Bistro Provence in Burbank...

                    (I'm cranky, by the way -- I had an astoundingly good prix-fixe three-course lunch in New York yesterday for the princely sum of $13, which got me octopus with white beans, grilled salmon with garlic spinach and creme brulee -- http://www.chowhound.com/topics/525423 -- and we just don't have places like that here.)

                      Max is doing a three course price-fixe on Monday nights now. I think it's $28.
