Who needs Restaurant Week to get a taste of some of the swankiest spots in town? Instead of waiting until September, lots of local restaurants are promoting special prix fixe deals right now -- a great way to sample the offerings at a sweet discount.
J&G Steakhouse just announced its $35, three-course prix fixe, available from 5 to 7 p.m. nightly. Entree choices include slow-baked salmon with rhubarb compote, lemon-pepper chicken steak, or grilled Black Angus flat iron steak frites.
Just down the street, Metro is offering its Brasserie burger with frites and a beer for $10 -- available nightly after 10 p.m.
Through September 21, all four locations of Fleming's Prime Steak House & Wine Bar are serving three courses for $35.95; entrees include peppercorn-crusted filet mignon, roasted sesame chicken, and broiled sea scallops.
$25 will get you three courses at Taggia -- your choice of antipasti, entree and dessert.

Ocean Prime's $35 three-course prix fixe features ginger salmon or a petite filet for the main course.
The $29 "Sunset Menu" at Meritage Steakhouse at JW Marriott Desert Ridge is offered from 5 to 6:30 p.m. nightly. It features three courses (see menu), with smoked prime rib, chicken orechiette or roasted salmon as main dishes.
And even Kai, one of the most high-profile restaurants in the Valley, is getting in on the prix fixe game, with its "Kai Cares" menu. It's three courses for $59, a showcase of the restaurant's most popular dishes: lettuces hand-picked by local farmers and children of Gila Crossing School, grilled tenderloin of buffalo from the Cheyenne River Tribe, and traditional fry bread.
