Since 2006, trendy upscale restaurants of the Grand Tables Association have held a "restaurant week" where they offer special lunch and dinner menus at prices that won't scare the pants off of college kids who want to impress their dates.
Set menus are said to be priced at 20,000 won (lunch) and 30,000 won (dinner), VAT not included. Which, considering their normal prices, is a pretty good deal.
The week for spring 2009 starts on April 20th (Mon) and runs to April 26th (Sun) with 16 restaurants participating, mostly in the Chungdam district :
