Next week Winter Restaurant Week 2008 launches in New York City. Restaurants participating in this popular two-week event typically offer three-course meals for a set price; this year it's a three-course lunch prix fixe for $24.07, a play on New York as the city that never sleeps (open 24/7), and a three-course dinner prix fixe for $35.00, most served Monday - Friday. Not every restaurant participates for both lunch and dinner, so be sure to check when making a reservation. Restaurant Week runs Jan. 21 - 25 and Jan. 28 - Feb. 1, 2008.

Here are DiningFever picks for a perfect Winter Restaurant Week 2008:

Telepan
Restaurant Week 2008 - Lunch Only (Wed. - Fri.)
This popular Upper West Side restaurant is the creation of Chef Bill Telepan, who previously garnered three stars in the New York Times for JUdson Grill. This time out, the Times said Telepan's eponymous restaurant "will warm hearts and sate appetites." Discover that for yourself with the Restaurant Week three-course lunch for $24.07 served both weeks, Wed. - Fri.

Blue Smoke
Restaurant Week 2008: Lunch and Dinner
If you city folk have a hankerin' for some authentic pit barbecue, head for this very popular Union Square Hospitality Group restaurant in Murray Hill. This is the real deal, so get your fix during Restaurant Week for both lunch and dinner.

21 Club
Restaurant Week 2008: Lunch and Dinner
Once a glamorous speakeasy, the venerable 21 Club has generated renewed interest and respect since its acquisition by Orient-Express Hotels, Trains & Cruises. If you've never experienced what Bloomberg News calls "the most New York of New York restaurants," you can't afford to miss this great opportunity to see what's kept 21 going for 80 years.

Brasserie Ruhlmann
Restaurant Week 2008: Lunch and Dinner
Named for Art Deco designer Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann and helmed by Executive Chef Laurent Tourondel of the BLT group of restaurants, Brasserie Ruhlmann has the added plus of sitting in the heart of Rockefeller Plaza across from the skating rink. Grab your skates or just ask for a seat by the window and enjoy the best of New York in winter, and take advantage of these Restaurant Week menus.

City Crab & Seafood Company
Restaurant Week 2008 -- Lunch Only
One of the cornerstones of Park Avenue South's restaurant row, City Crab & Seafood Company specializes in seafood and steaks, in addition to a large raw bar and full service sushi bar. Come to this New York City restaurant which is "in its heart," according to New York Magazine, "really a Maryland Crab Shack with an expanded menu," for the Restaurant Week lunch and dinner prix fixes.

Tamarind
Restaurant Week 2008 -- Lunch Only
Tamarind invites you to "take a culinary journey through India," providing cuisine that is a welcome departure from the norm. Dishes from cities throughout India, including Punjab, Madras and Calcutta, distinguish the extensive menus. For Restaurant Week, a three-course menu is a great value at $24.07, offered for lunch only.

DavidBurke & Donatella
Restaurant Week 2008 -- Lunch Only
Acclaimed Chef David Burke and his partner, restaurateur Donatella Arpaia, are (happily for us) participating in Winter Restaurant Week again this year for lunch at their east side restaurant. Located just steps away from Bloomingdale's, this is a great place to lunch before an afternoon of shopping, and the special prix fixe menu provides a great opportunity to experience Burke's cuisine and have a few dollars left for Bloomie's. The lunch menu features three courses with lots of choices, and we're told not to miss the whimsical Cheesecake Lollipop Tree with raspberries and bubblegum whipped cream.

JoJo
Restaurant Week 2008: Lunch and Dinner
Celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten's first New York restaurant, JoJo, was awarded three stars from the New York Times when it opened it '91, and is still going strong following an extensive renovation. The Times now calls the space "sumptuous" with the "heart of a bistro." For Restaurant Week, JoJo's is serving its regular lunch prix fixe menu with two small plates and a dessert for $24.07, and a 3-course dinner menu for $35.00.

Amma
Restaurant Week 2008: Lunch and Dinner
A two star review in the New York Times distinguishes this Indian restaurant, which, according to the Times' William Grimes, by "taking the back roads, and steering clear of the tired tourist sites, shows diners a different India, so old that it seems fresh." Check out this winner during the Restaurant Week event for the lunch menu ($24.07), which includes choice of soup, appetizer, entree and dessert, or dinner ($35.00), which includes choice of soup, two appetizers, entree and dessert.
