For this edition of the biannual extravaganza, which extends from January 14 to February 8, more than 300 local restaurants will offer three-course prix-fixe meals at discounted prices (lunch $25, dinner $38). As with previous years, most spots participate Monday through Friday, with a few springing for the optional Sunday.

Among the participants are several TONY critics' picks, including Dovetail, Esca, Hospoda, Kin Shop and Locanda Verde.
