Started in 1992 by legendary restaurateur Joe Baum and founder of the Zagat Guides, Tim Zagat, the Restaurant Week concept is more popular than ever. It's a great opportunity to discover new restaurants or to experience pricier places you've been longing to try. At DiningFever , where we're committed to bringing you the best dining deals in New York, we'll present our picks for this year's event, five per week. Here are the first five, and don't forget to make reservations early, since many places book up quickly.

Gusto Ristorante e Bar Americano
Restaurant Week is a great opportunity to sample some of Chef Anne Burrell's cuisine, since Burrell, the chef of Gusto's sister restaurant, Centro Vinoteca, has just taken over for Amanda Freitag at this popular West Village venue. Gusto will be offering special Restaurant Week menus for both lunch and dinner, and one can only hope the menus include Gusto's famous fried artichokes!

Bread Bar at Tabla
As Tabla's more affordable, casual counterpart, the Bread Bar is participating in Restaurant Week for both lunch and dinner. This Union Square Hospitality Group's foray into "homestyle Indian cuisine" has been delighting neighborhood regulars for years, and just might turn you into a "regular" too with an even more affordable introduction during Winter Restaurant Week.

Le Cirque
The legendary Le Cirque restaurant in its latest incarnation in Midtown's Bloomberg corporate headquarters is described in the New York Magazine review as a "great, polished cruise ship of a restaurant." Dine under the "big top" for Le Cirque's Restaurant Week 2008 lunch menu, or in the cafe for dinner, which is offered on a first come, first served basis (no reservations).

Mesa Grill
Celebrity Chef Bobby Flay's first restaurant and flagship, Mesa Grill, has been serving Flay's signature Southwestern cuisine since 1991. The lunch and dinner Restaurant Week menus aren't finalized yet, but Mesa usually includes some of the restaurant's signature dishes in its Restaurant Week choices.

The Post House
"Possibly New York City's most civilized steak house," according to the New York Times, The Post House is perfect for "people who want their porterhouse with pomp and ceremony." From the team behind a host of upscale restaurants including Smith & Wollensky, Park Avenue Winter, and Quality Meats, Post House has received its share of accolades from the press and foodies alike. A three-course prix fixe will be served at lunch for Winter Restaurant Week 2008.
