Usually prix-fixe dinners can be a tad annoying, if for no other reason than their exorbitant costs. But at Contra in the Lower East Side, the prix-fixe is a welcomed surprise: a seasonally-focused, 6-course menu for just $74. Not too hungry? Save even more by partaking in the 3-course menu at the bar.

An unassuming exterior and quiet interior make room for the food to shine, which it does on nearly every iteration of the menu that's been rolled out since Contra opened up shop in 2013. The beauty of Contra lies in the notion that it's possible to create beautifully elaborate and innovative meals at a fraction of the cost without losing any clarity, vision or brilliance.
