Delicious dining deals (pre-theater, weekday lunch, happy hour, etc.) at upscale places?

Am going to NYC next week sort of last minute and wondering what the best upscale dining deals in Manhattan (or Brooklyn) are. I'm talking pre-theater menus, weekday lunch specials, happy hour food specials, or anything of the sort that would be a good way to sample an upscale/expensive restaurant without having to pay the normal places. Something along the lines of the $20 lunch at Estiatorio Milos in Vegas, the lickity-split lunch menu at Restaurant Eve near DC or the great pre-theater prix fixe meals at Tosca and Marcels in DC (where I live).
Much thanks!

    The lunchtime deal at Del Posto is an exceptional value, but be sure to get reservations. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was elegant and the service was great. I was also very pleased with lunch at Perry Street, where I added on a few supplemental items, but the cost was negligible and the meal was excellent. Still...Del Posto gets my vote for most bang for your buck!

      had a wonderful prix fixe lunch at Gotham bar and grill.
      Tocqueville also has a great deal at lunch. The food was good but at 1p.m. the restayrant was almost deserted.
      nougatine is another good choice
