I feel like Restaurant Week was pretty awesome when it started, but now most of the expensive restaurants put out mediocre food because they're so overwhelmed, and the other places aren't that great enough for me to spend $30/person.

Some of the restaurants on this list....$30 isn't even a deal. You can go to them anytime and eat for $30.
