Items Like Blackbird's Lunch Prix-Fixe (similar food, similar price point)

I'm a student so my spending money is pretty restricted. At the same time, I rarely eat anything I don't make myself (this summer I went ~8 weeks between meals from outside), so when I do go to a restaurant I'd like to eat something that I could not make.

As a result I've been eyeing Blackbird's $22 3-course lunch prix fixe for a while. I'm just wondering if there is anything at a similar price point with similar quality (a difficult combination I know, but I figured I'd ask). If it's available on a Friday or Saturday night so much the better, but I'm sure that's pushing it.

I've been looking at Yusho as well, but it's too far away to be my first choice.

If it helps, I'm not that big of an eater so one entree (or a few small plates) would probably be enough. At the same time I'm reluctant to go somewhere and just order one item.

Thanks in advance.
