Lunch at the bar. Lunch on the patio. A lunch made of tapas.

Restaurant Week only comes around twice a year with its $20 lunch. But many restaurants offer lunch deals in their dining rooms or bars that are as good or better than what's offered during that promotion. And unlike Restaurant Week, the servers will have fewer diners vying for their attention, and there's no need to hustle for reservations.

Check out Eater's updated guide to classy, often multi-course lunch deals around town, updated.
