Update 1/5/09 — I’ve made some updates to this list since there were some new additions and changes (such as price increases).  As always, let me know if I’ve missed your favorite!

I posted a few of them herewith 2008’s Winter Restaurant Week, but here are a few more.  I’ll continue to add to the list and if you know your favorite restaurant offers a pre-theater/prix-fixe menu (and it’s available online), send me an email at whereindc AT gmail DOT com.
