Did You Miss Restaurant Week in NYC? You Can Still Get the Deals.

Restaurant Week ended yesterday, but the good news is that some of Manhattan's best restaurants are keeping the discount love going. Two of my favorites, Fishtail by David Burke and Osteria del Circo have menus with recession pricing throughout the week.

At Fishtail, if you want to splurge, try the dover sole with pineapple, an interesting and unusual combination; or one of the shellfish towers. Or you can order the reasonably priced trio of fish tacos along with a perfect appetizer-portion crab cake and have a great meal. Otherwise, the prix fixe menu gives you lots of choices from the five "dressed" oysters (dressed with pickled vegetables), to grilled trout and scallops and, of course, David Burke's famous cheesecake lollipops.

Osteria del Circo offers two sizes of their antipasti and pastas to put together a grazing meal that won't break the bank. You can also try their changing "set" menu with favorites like their wonderful pumpkin cappellacci with amaretto cookie dusting; a perfectly grilled branzino; and a fluffy, almost whipped lemon sorbetto that is a perfect finish to any meal.
