There's always a lot of value on the menu at this Carroll Gardens clubhouse, but Mondays have a special draw: That's when you can sample chef Ryan Angulo's handiwork in a three-course prix fixe. The $25 deal offers you a choice of two appetizers (the selection changes often, but a bright zucchini-basil soup was a recent winner) and three entres, including the popular buttermilk fried chicken with cheddar waffles. Desserts are no afterthought: Options include one of TONY's favorite treats, a decadent pecan-pie sundae layered with Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream and house-made, molasses-infused pie filling. 524 Court St at Huntington St, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn (718-852-8490, buttermilkchannelnyc.com)

Kyotofu
This dessert bar may be known best for its sweets, but you'll find a savory meal in the Kyotofu Sampler ($18), a bento box of the menu's small plates (normally each $8--$11). Start with a warm Japanese mushroom salad, then dig into chicken and tofu sliders, "pigs in a duvet" (a spin on the finger food made with Berkshire pork sausage, puff pastry and spicy mustard), tsukune chicken meatballs and phyllo-wrapped barbecued eel. 705 Ninth Ave between 48th and 49th Sts (212-974-6012, kyotofu-nyc.com)

Fort Defiance
Though this Red Hook gathering spot is often lauded for its cocktails, owner St. John Frizell is smart enough to know that sometimes the simple pleasures of a cold beer and a good burger will do. Come by on a Monday night for the $12 deal: a LaFrieda short-rib patty with dill pickles on a fluffy sesame-seed bun (normally a $9 lunch item on its own), served with one of the craft beers on tap, like a Sixpoint Bengali Tiger IPA. 365 Van Brunt St at Dikeman St, Red Hook, Brooklyn (347-453-6672, fortdefiancebrooklyn.com)

David Burke Kitchen
Weekend deals can be tough to come by, but you'll find one in Slider Saturdays at this country-chic resto. From 11am to 5pm, get a half-dozen sliders, plus a beer or soda, for $15. Mix and match from three choices, each served on a mini brioche bun: Cabot cheddar and applewood-smoked-bacon cheeseburger, crispy Blue Point oysters with Old Bay sauerkraut, and seared yellowfin tuna with chipotle mayo. 23 Grand St at Sixth Ave (212-201-9119, davidburkekitchen.com)

Dell'anima
Night owls can eat like early birds with this West Villager's "pasta-fixe" special ($25), available Tuesday through Saturday from midnight until 2am. Choose from one of four pastas (usually priced around $18 la carte), including orecchiette with braised pancetta and broccoli rabe, or fettucine with artichoke rag, fennel and Cerignola olives. Pair it with one of four Italian vintages; a glass (regularly $10--$12) is included. 38 Eighth Ave between Jane and W 12th Sts (212-366-6633, dellanima.com)
