mid-week prix fixe menus?
Canele in Atwater Village has a fantastic $24 set menu Tuesday through Thursday for dinner that shifts by the season. There's no choice, but you know in advance what the menu will be--and as long as you're into what they're serving that night, it's excellent and one of the best values in town.
I believe Bashan has a mid-week prix fixe as well ($40 or $45?), and I think Shiro has something on Wednesday nights. All of these represent a chance to try higher-end places at much more reasonable prices than their standard a la carte menus.
Does anyone know of other great (mid-week or otherwise) deals at better restaurants? I'm trying to expand my horizons without bankruptcy!

Dominick's in WeHo has a Sunday night supper which is 3 courses for $15 and their table wine is $10 for a bottle. It doesn't get any more financially viable than that in LA.

Four-course deal is $30 at ThirdandOlive.com, Burbank on Tues and Wed.
Chef Miki's sister restaurant, Bistro Provence, is $32.50 prix fix every night I think.
Yes The Park in Echo Park (thepark1400sunset.com) has pre fixes on Tuesdays (15$) and Fridays. Also connected to the Dominick's recommendation is Little Dom's. They do their 15$ pre fixe on Monday. I believe Roy's has a prefixe as well at all locations.
I second taking advantage of Dine LA week coming up!

I have alway's loved Roy's prix fixe menu. The shortribs are amazing and the chocolate soufle are two favorites, and both have been on the 3-4 options menu whenever I have gone. Runs about $35 pp.
Jiraffe has its Monday night bistro menu and Josie its Wednesday Farmer's Market menu, both of which change weekly. Josie also now has a 3 course prix fixe [$45] on its menu.
