10. Ten Ten

Like its sister restaurant Fleet Street Kitchen, Ten Ten does Restaurant Week diners a huge favor by paring down its regular menu to a manageable selection. By limiting the choices to four or five options in each category, diners can make informed choices, and the kitchen doesn't go bonkers trying to keep the pace. That's the way to do it. Of course, it helps that the options -- things like pan-seared scallops, grilled shrimp and grits and angel food cake with peach compote and blueberry ice -- sound so delicious. • More Restaurant Week restaurants, sample menu items
