Just because it's September doesn't mean the hot weather is over, so it seems appropriate that the dining deals intended to lure locals into restaurants during the summer continue this month.
The latest is called Louisiana Seafood Restaurant Week, organized by the Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) and held this week through Sept. 16. Participating restaurants serve two-course lunches for $20 and three-course dinners for $35. Nearly 40 restaurants are participating, and they range from grandes dames, like Arnaud's Restaurant (813 Bienville St., 523-5433; www.arnaudsrestaurant.com), to some of the newest places in town, such as SoBou (310 Chartres St., 552-4095; www.sobounola.com). As part of the deal, the LRA will make a contribution to the Friends of the Fishermen Fund, which provides assistance to commercial fishermen in Louisiana.
