I noticed today that "Notaro Ristorante" on Second Ave. between 34th and 35th Street is currently offering an "early-bird special" from 3pm to 6:30 pm. for $13.95. What makes it special is that it's four courses: Soup, salad, choice of entree from a list of nine, and a choice of dessert from a list of eight. Also, if you choose a non-pasta entree you get a pasta side-dish which would make it five courses sort of. Not too bad considering it's a very nice place!
