January and February Prix Fixe alternatives to Winterlicious?

I understand Thuet (Bite Me) has been offering a $48 recession menu (since the fall), and Scaramouche is running a Lobsterlicious with a 3 course set menu at $52 over the next few weeks. Some other restaurants like Zucca (Sun- Tue, appetizer, pasta and dessert prix fixe for $25) and Starfish (early bird special of 3 courses for $35) have yearround prix fixe options, depending on the night or time.

What other good restaurants are offering special menus or deals right now?

          yeah lists are great. I'm trying to master CH's new list feature because it's obvious a list like this is perfect for that. Will keep everyone posted.

      1. Does anyone know what dishes are on Scaramouche's lobsterlicious menu?

            Thanks! When I checked out their menu a few days ago it had an "Ask server about Lobsterlicious," but I didn't notice the menu itself!

            Looks good! I think I'll go!

              Very excited-have a reso with friends next week...will report back


              1. re: Splendid Wine Snob

                Given a choice between a $45 'licious menu and a $52 Scaramouche lobster menu....I'll think I'll pony up the extra 7 bucks!

            2. Maroco on Yorkville. A beautiful surprise.

                What did you have at Maroco?

                Why surprised?

                Another great prix fixe is at the South Side.

              2. i haven't been there in over a year so perhaps my memory is failing me, but what is involved with the starfish early bird special? i can't seem to find anything on their website about it.

                  When I visited Starfish last spring, they had a 3 course prix fixe for $35, as long as you were dining between something like 5 pm and 6: 30 pm (can't remember the exact time frame, but they open at 4 pm on Sundays, 5 pm the rest of the week).

                  I don't remember seeing the special on the website even last year. It was a pleasant surprise when we showed up for an early Sunday evening dinner. IIRC, there was a choice of approximately 5 appetizers, 5 mains, and their house desserts. Not sure if the offer ran all week, or just Sun, Mon, Tue, like Zucca.

                  The Tunisian sea bream, mussels and grilled sardines were options on the prix fixe, the night I was there.

                  1. re: phoenikia

                    thanks! that certainly warrants a call to get more details. i noticed on his blog that he was getting in some lovely scallops last week.... will need to know what the status on those are too.
