Appetite stimulas week
I see that Open Table is featuring appetite stimulas week Nov 17-21 with about 100 area restaurants featuring special three course $24 lunches and $35 dinners. You have to ask for the special menu. Interesting names on the list such as Valentino, The Palm, Joes and many others. Very tempting. Bargains are good. If indeed they are. Please give us feedback if anyone tries these restaurants and their "special menus." Much thanks.
Sounds exactly like New York Restaurant Week -- the problem with RW is that while there were some fantastic deals to be had ($35 prix fixe for three courses at Eleven Madison Park or Gramercy Tavern?) there are also pitfalls, restaurants whose RW meals should have cost $6 from a meat-on-the-street cart.

Yeah, some of the restaurants on the Stimulus plan seemed like they weren't great deals for this, but some friends and I will try out Thousand Cranes. I went there once years and years ago and enjoyed it, but don't know how it is now. In any case, it couldn't be too bad, and the view is always nice.
