Dine About Town San Francisco: The City's Favorite Food Event Is Back (PHOTOS)

It's the most wonderful time of the year. No, not December. Dine About Town is back (January 15-31) and nobody breaks resolutions faster than San Francisco.

Starting this Sunday, more than 100 San Francisco restaurants will offer cheap prix fixe menus ($17.95 for a two-course lunch or $34.95 for a three-course dinner) to celebrate the eleventh annual Dine About Town. And this year, everybody's playing.


The celebration starts off with a launch party at the Metreon on Thursday Night, followed by two glorious weeks of braised oxtail, sake steamed manila clams, French onion grilled cheese sandwiches, vanilla and olive oil milkshakes and hundreds of other dishes worth more than twenty bucks.

With 100 restaurants (and counting) participating, it's safe to say you may not get to them all. Fortunately, we've provided our editor highlights in the slideshow below:
