Restaurant Week--where are you planning on going?

Restaurant week is July 21-25 & July 28-Aug 1. What places are on your list? I'm looking for inspiration and suggestions.
I'm going to:
- Gramercy Tavern
- EMP (some menu choices read vaguely familiar to last year's but sounds good anyway)
- Aquavit (Dining Room but it won't matter in terms of the menu - it's the same as the Cafe)
- Del Posto
- Le Cirque (for dinner)
In re: to sticham, I've been to Anthos and Devi for lunch the past winter. Anthos's RW menu wasn't that great that my friend and I opted for their regular lunch prix fixe and service was pretty bad. As for Devi, it was very good. Their RW menu is pretty much what they offer on their normal menu and service was attentive.
kimie, if you're looking for a dinner option, I do suggest the Bar Room at the Modern. I had a very good meal albeit service was a bit lacking.
Just a word of warning that Del Posto's RW menu is very limited and sized down and not representative of the restaurant's regular offering at all.
This year the list is so boring that I am going to go to restaurants that are NOT participating in RW instead! I hope they will be less crowded! :D
I didn't obssess too much since it seems like the special menu usually gets offered until Labor Day. I made dinner reservations at: Roy's, Devi, Amalia, Rayuela, Town, Mai House and Crema. Lunch reservations are at: davidburke & donatella and I'm debating possibly taking a trip to EMP.
I had heard that Mai House was pretty mediocre which is why I didn't visit during the last restaurant week. But with the recent changes in staff and increased visibility of the restaurant, I'm curious to see what they offer. Of course if the RW menu turns out to be a poor reflection, I'll have no qualms cancelling my reservation.
Any thoughts on Mai House, for RW and otherwise? Don't see much about it on these boards.
