For those of you that live in the San Francisco area, this month is the 6th annual Visa sponsored, Dine About Town. You can get a 3-course prix-fixe lunch or dinner ($21.95 and $31.95 respectively) from one of 103 restaurants. The only catch is that you'll have to use your Visa card.

It's a steal for some of these places, but be careful and make sure that the place you choose doesn't have cheaper options off the regular menu.

I'm personally hoping to check a few places out (including Campton Place) and will let you know if I do.

Check out a full list of participating restaurants.

And for those of you not fortunate enough to make it, check out prix fixe menus at some of your local fine eateries. Prix fixe, french for fixed price, refers to a set menu with limited options, offered at a set price. Usually it's a good sampling of what the restaurant has to offer.
