For a few years now, NYC along with a number of other cities has hosted Restaurant Week. For ten days twice a year diners can choose a three course lunch or dinner at a prix fixe rate. It's a good way to try a new place on a budget. For the first time Friday evening Niel and I decided to participate. We chose Nick and Stef's, a steak house by Madison Square Garden. My coworker raved about it. We opted for an early meal since apparently the place becomes very crowded after 8. The food was pretty good but I have to agree with my coworker that the service was great. The waiters didn't hover over you. They only brought water and came over if you called them. It does after all get annoying when servers are trying to hurry me out. Below are the pics of the dishes we wouldn't normally eat. My favorite was Niel's dry fruit bread pudding. More info at my flickr account.

I love this idea!! What a nice way to test out restaurants w/o breaking the bank (on what might be a crummy meal).
