Hill Country Barbecue

TriBeCafe
The Monday through Thursday four-course prix-fixe dinner (6--10pm; $25) at this casual Tokyo-style eatery is a great way to get acquainted with yoshoku cuisine—a uniquely Japanese spin on Italian and American food. Choose any appetizer and any pasta (both served in half portions), such as the ika-uni spaghetti with calamari and sea-urchin roe, then get a full-size entre—like a Japanese Hamburg patty, a bunless pork-and-beef "burger" topped with mushroom demi-glace and a fried egg. A scoop of green-tea or vanilla ice cream sweetens the offer, and you can upgrade to any other dessert (such as a matcha-and-white-chocolate souffl) for just $3. 277 Church St between Franklin and White Sts (212-343-0277, tribecafe.net)

Hill Country Barbecue
This smokehouse has two ways to get your fill of low-and-slow meat on the cheap. Sunday's "Feed Yer Family" special (4--10pm; $20) includes a quarter pound of brisket, a pork rib, a beef rib and a quarter chicken, served on butcher paper. Dig into two sides (such as bourbon-laced sweet potatoes or collard greens) and a cookie or cupcake for dessert. Or opt for all-you-can-eat brisket, pork ribs, chicken and sides (5--10pm; $25) on Mondays. 30 W 26th St between Sixth Ave and Broadway (212-255-4544, hillcountryny.com)

The Mermaid Inn and Mermaid Oyster Bar
Sunday's Lobsterpalooza ($24) can be found at all three of the Mermaid's locations (though the East Village spot is your best bet if you prefer to crack your claws alfresco). The special includes a pound and a quarter of Maine lobster, plus potatoes, grilled corn on the cob and coleslaw. New this summer, lobster's rival crustacean gets a day of its own: On Tuesdays, you can order a bucket of Maryland blue crabs with potatoes and grilled corn for the same $24 price. Both deals are around through Labor Day only, so bib up ASAP. The Mermaid Inn, 96 Second Ave between 5th and 6th Sts (212-674-5870) * 568 Amsterdam Ave between 87th and 88th Sts (212-799-7400) * Mermaid Oyster Bar, 79 MacDougal St between Bleecker and W Houston Sts (212-260-0100) * themermaidnyc.com

Flex Mussels
Through summer, the West Village location of this seafood joint is offering an excellent happy-hour deal: Monday through Friday from 5:30 to 7pm, hand over $20 and be rewarded with one of four select draft beers, an order of fries and unlimited mussels in your choice of three broths (Dijon mustard and white wine; tomato, olive oil and garlic; and classic white wine and herbs). 154 W 13th St between Sixth and Seventh Aves (212-229-0222, flexmusselsny.com)
