Dinner & Discounts

By Julia Beizer

Forget the economic stimulus. Next week, more than 150 area restaurants want you to think about stimulating your appetite. From Nov. 17 to 21, they'll be offering three-course lunches and dinners for $24 and $35, respectively.

OpenTable, the company behind the Web-based restaurant reservation system, organized the promotion in 13 cities across the country. "Given the economy, diners are looking for a little bit of an extra reason to dine out," said Scott Jampol, OpenTable's senior director of consumer marketing. Restaurants, too, were noting a decline in customers over the last few belt-tightening weeks. The promotion will be similar to Restaurant Week -- most participating restaurants will have a separate menu with a few options for diners who wish to take advantage of the three-course meal. Find a full list of participating restaurants here.

Diners who book through OpenTable net double the Dining Rewards Points for their reservation.
