2012 Best Prix Fixe

T.W. Food

While some restaurants offer $90-plus takes on set menus, the prix-fixe concept actually originated as a deal. At Cambridge bistro T. W. Food, tradition prevails: Sunday through Thursday, $49 gets you your pick of the menu’s starters (we love the silky scrambled farm egg), entrées (like the superb house-made pastas), and dessert (the sorbets are breathtaking)—leaving enough in your wallet for a bottle of good wine.
