SF restaurants promote recession specials: all you can eat pizza nights and prix fixe menus

If you eat out in San Francisco, the first thing you notice is how easy it is to get a table at your favorite restaurant. In the pre-credit crunch days, you had to reserve weeks in advance. Today you walk in. It’s no surprise that SF restaurants have been doing all kinds of promotions to get people to eat out again:

SF recession specials: all you can eat pizza at Local and Open Table stimulus plan

South Food and Wine Bar recession special: $34 prix fixe, 3 course dinner

San Francisco lunch favorites: Recession special at Axis Cafe hits the spot

Of course, there are other ways to save money and still enjoy a great meal. There are a lot of ethnic restaurants in and around San Francisco that may not be high on decor, but in terms of the quality of the cooking, you can’t go wrong:
