With the seventh annual Buckhead Restaurant Week less than a week away, reservations for the best prix fixe lunches and dinners are already going fast due to their generous $15, $25 or $35 tiered pricing. It's a great way to check out spots you might not know, or ones that are generally out of your budget. The event runs Saturday, April 16, through Sunday, April 24, and with more than two dozen restaurants participating, you couldn't hit them all even if you dined out for lunch and dinner at a different spot every single day. We're here to help, digging through the menus and offering you the highlights. These are the can't-miss selections.

  • Bistro Niko

    Serving: Dinner ($35)

    Why You Should Go: The first-course choices veer from light (warm crab tartine) to rich (housemade duck prosciutto), and the same goes for dinner — options include grilled pork tenderloin, cod bouillabaisse and more. Choose between sorbet, chocolate mousse or crème brûlée for dessert.

    3344 Peachtree Rd.; 404-261-6456

  • Cook Hall

    Serving: Dinner ($25)

    Why You Should Go: Start off seasonally at the W Buckhead's restaurant with strawberry and goat cheese salad, or with deviled eggs and blue crab. Crispy duck tacos, asparagus risotto or glazed pork belly are your entree choices, while dessert choices are butterscotch pudding, cinnamon donuts or a vanilla and buttermilk panna cotta.

    3377 Peachtree Rd. NE; 404-523-3600

  • Del Frisco's Grille

    Serving: Brunch ($15), Lunch ($35), Dinner ($35)

    Why You Should Go: For one thing, it's one of only two restaurants with a brunch option. For another, lunch and dinner are both three-course meals featuring prime pot roast or a classic salmon beurre blanc, followed by peach bread pudding.

    3376 Peachtree Rd. NE; 404-537-2828

  • Divan

    Serving: Dinner ($25)

    Why You Should Go: Divan is the only Persian restaurant on the list, and its entrees alone can normally cost as much as this whole three-course dinner. You'll choose between a turkey-pistachio kufta, crab croquettes and herbed goat cheese, among other starters. Main courses include pan-roasted mahi mahi, saffron chicken kebabs and grilled lamb. Wrap up with Persian donuts, saffron-cardamom ice cream or the East-meets-West baklava cheesecake.

    3125 Piedmont Rd.; 404-467-4297

  • F&B

    Serving: Dinner ($25)

    Why You Should Go: This French-inspired bistro has plenty of dishes using local ingredients with a continental flair. The three-course dinner includes starters like kale salad or white bean soup, while the entree spotlights skate wing meunière, oven-roasted chicken or steak frites. Dessert includes warm apple tart or a medley of tart berries.

    KR SteakBar

    Serving: Dinner ($25)

    Why You Should Go: Because how else are you going to get a three-course meal at this Kevin Rathbun spot for $25? Selections include carpaccio, arancini, squid-ink tagliatelle, grilled salmon, tiramisu, chocolate-hazelnut tart and more.

    349 Peachtree Hills Ave. NE; 404-841-8820

  • Southern Art

    Serving: Lunch ($25), Dinner ($35)

    Why You Should Go: Taste the South with a first course of either mussels, a soup of the day or a chargrilled Caesar salad, before moving on to buttermilk fried chicken or a pan-seared salmon. Dessert's the signature 12-layer red-velvet cake.
