You can dine on a dime at a restaurant near you. Fresno's restaurant week is a local effort to make your next meal out more affordable. The goal is for diners to discover new restaurants at a discounted price.

At upscale Max's Bistro in Northwest Fresno a single dinner entree can cost $27. So an entire three course menu at the same price sounds like a steal. 17 casual, upscale and fine dining Fresno restaurants--including Max's, Campagnia, and Five--are participating in Fresno's restaurant week which ends this Friday, October 9th.

Each participating restaurant offers a three course fixed price menu of three starters, five entrees, and 3 desserts for $13, $20 or $27.

Organizers say the restaurants are showcasing some of their newest and best dishes for diners. Advance reservations are recommended for this popular event but walk-ins are welcome. The event benefits Poverello House.

A sampling of the menus at each price point:

Campagnia, at $27 per person
Starter: Savory Argentine prawns with orange-tarragon glaze
Entrée: Broiled flat iron steak with red wine butter sauce, gorgonzola cream, garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables
