Lawrence Restaurant Week Picks: From Shrimp and Grits to Giant Banana Splits (and Corndogs).

Broke scenesters can't afford to do too much in the way of Restaurant Week prix fixe sampling (with many of the prices hovering around $35).  But there are certainly more affordable prices out there as well for various specials.  Keep an eye on the official site for updated menus throughout the week.

Here are a few  items that caught our eye.

Terrebone is busting out the shrimp creole and grits!  $8.50

Ladybird dishes up a "giant banana split" for $12.99.  We're anxious to see a pic of this beast! (but they are closed today).

And Free State's dinner special (quoted below) sounds like a sophisticated feast fit for a king, though it contains no price listing..  We were hoping for a return of the old wedge-cut fries this week, but no such luck.

"Choucroute Garnie:  The classic meal from the Alsace region of France. Cured pork loin and our own thick cut bacon are grilled, along with smoked bratwurst and kielbasa sausage. They’re placed over seasoned and white wine sautéed sauerkraut and boiled baby potatoes.
Recommended beer pairing: Octoberfest or our special wine feature, Alsatian Riesling

Chip:  "I'm not sure if the 23rd Street Sonic is officially part of Restaurant Week, but they've promised 50 cent corndogs this evening. Ask them about it @23rdStreetSonic."
