Loopland, there’s something in here for you, too. Sustenio’s modern Texan menu looks formidable and the Eilan as backdrop make this a fabulous dinner. Four words: Pimento cheese and chicharrones.

An off-shoot of Chama Gaucha, this local steakhouse can be filed under the Total Steal category if you’re planning to go during Restaurant Week. The menu includes lobster bisque, filet mignon and chocolate torte as options.

A regular visit to Kimura will usually set us back at least $20 and that’s not counting parking. During these magical weeks, you can sneak in for lunch and order cucumber sunomono, charred edamame and spicy miso ramen with bok choy for $15. It’s a metropolitan lunch on a budget. Don’t miss the katsudon for dinner.
