Restaurant Week may be over, but several Center City restaurants are continuing to offer meal deals through the end of the year.

At Michael Shulson's Sampan you'll get seven courses from the Chef's Tasting menu for $45 per person.

Managing Partner Michael Wirzberger explains, "The guest actually decides on the tasting. You select from the menu, one satay, one cold, one hot, one meat, one fish. It is a lot of food.And we add in a bonus dish of a small and a side to make the deicison-making process a little easier."

You can choose from dishes like crab wonton tacos, beef satay, edamame dumplings or tuna rice crackers -- plus you get ice cream for dessert. Wirzberger says just about every party leaves with leftovers.

At Cuba Libre, they're offering a promotion called Tapas Tuesdays.

Executive Chef Guillermo Pernot and his staff offer all-you-can-eat small plates for $27. Cuban delicacies like grilled octopus, mussels, grilled pork bellies, spinach and manchego cheese puffs, ceviche, meatballs and more.

Pernot says the average patron eats about five-and-a-half small plates before calling it quits.

At the Twisted Tail by Headhouse Square, you'll pay $35 for four courses of Southern-inspired favorites.

Restaurateur George Reilly explains, "People are able to come and pick their favorite item from each category on our menu. We have chargcoal grill items, our appetizers, our entrees, and then a selection of our great desserts as well. So, it's four courses, $35, and a plethora of food and a really great way for people to taste through samplings of our menu and getting a good idea of what we do here."

Specialties at Twisted Tail include Louisiana shrimp and grits, Southern Fried chicken, crawfish macaroni and cheese and New Orleans-style beignets.
