The best side effect of the economic downturn is without a doubt the deals that keep rolling in from some of the city’s most highfalutin restaurants. Take the two following bits of news about Le Bec-Fin that are buzzing around the blogs today:
1. Lunch can be had for $15.23 and “includes a choice of either the Soup du Jour or the Field Greens Salad followed by Chef Perrier’s Burger Lyonnais which is a grilled prime burger served on a brioche bun with caramelized onion puree, cherry tomato confiture, and pomme frites.” Sure, it’s spendier than something grabbed from a street cart, but that’s apples to oranges.

2. Meanwhile, dinner bears two possible deals. On Mondays through Thursdays from 5:30pm-6:30pm and again from 9pm-10pm, early and late birds can get a $35 three-course prix fixe. However, the clear winner for maximum value per course is the new $55 six-course prix fixe. It’s available Mondays through Saturdays, throughout dinner. [Foobooz]
Also, to keep on the mind-grapes: Monday nights are BYOB.
