Close to 100 restaurants are participating in Restaurant Weeks this year, offering deals to entice summer city dwellers with three-course prix-fixe lunches for $14.95 and dinners for $29.95. Providence loses lots of residents in summer but even some vacation spots like Bristol offer deals. Complete list is on the site,

Among Providence downtown and East Side participants: Bacaro (, Cook & Brown (, Gracie's (, Farmstead/La Laiterie (,  and Pizzico (
If past history is a good indication Cook & Brown and Gracie's will treat you very well during restaurant week.

Across the highway: Loie Fuller's (
I like this eatery on the artsy west-side where few restaurants participate (notably missing: Nick's, Julien's and Broadway Bistro).

Out of town: Hourglass Brasserie on Thames Street in Bristol (
This is one I will book.

Expense account giants: Ruth Chris (, Capital Grille ( and McCormick & Schmick's (
Restaurant weeks are the only weeks when you can get sane prices at these tourist/business account/parent weekend haunts.
