One of the more common (and fabulous) deals is for a restaurant to offer a three-course menu for $20.10 (easy to remember since that's the current year). Some restaurants do three courses for $30.10. But there are lots of other special offers, as well.

Restaurant Week: Temperatures Falling —- Prices Too!
From a tall chai latte to lunch for two Italiano to an hibachi steak dinner, Nashville’s favorite eateries will offer special prices and menus during Restaurant Week, Monday, September 13 through
Sunday, September 19.
The semiannual event is sponsored by Nashville Originals, a nonprofit association of locally owned independent restaurants, as a way to spotlight Nashville’s unique local dining establishments. Last January’s Restaurant Week was hugely popular with diners, as the profile of Nashville’s independent restaurant scene continues to grow.
This month’s event features the largest number of participating restaurants to date. Forty-one establishments, from funky to fancy-pants, will offer deals ranging from specialty coffee
drinks to four-course meals, priced at $2.10, $20.10 or $30.10 depending on the venue. Breakfast, lunch and dinner specials are included in the offers, and for the first time several Franklin
restaurants will participate.
“Nashville Originals are growing, and so is the community of Nashville diners who appreciate the special nature of independent restaurants,” said Rick Bolsom, Nashville Originals board president. “Restaurant Week is a terrific opportunity for diners to try our new restaurants and revisit familiar favorites, while enjoying great prices.”
Many participating restaurants are offering three-course dinners featuring an appetizer or salad, an entrée and a dessert for $20.10. At other member restaurants, three-course dinners for $30.10
are on the menu.
A few examples: Jimmy Kelly’s will offer a four-course dinner for $30.10 per person. At Caffe Nonna, diners can enjoy lunch for two for just $20.10 or a three-course dinner for $30.10. Puckett’s in Franklin will feature three courses for $20.10, while DrinkHaus in Germantown features a daily drink special for $2.10. Provence’s three stores will pack up a box of coffee for 10 people with pastries or cookies for $20.10.
Several restaurants plan drink or wine specials. Acorn is offering its three-course dinner for $30.10, and giving diners a $10 certificate for a future meal.
