Foodies who will be in Shanghai from September 6 to 12 better make reservations now for the second annual Shanghai Restaurant Week.

An extra incentive to hit up the participating high-end restaurants is that you'll get a great deal: a three-course dinner will cost you 238 RMB, or about $35, and a three-course lunch will be 118 RMB, or $17.

But don't expect to be overwhelmed by options for authentic Chinese cuisine. According to CNNGo, most of the 28 participating restaurants skew toward Western cuisine or are in hotel venues, although few of the major Chinese restaurants will take part.

At Laris, order seasonal fare off the Restaurant Week menu, like wild duck breast with shiitake polenta, okra and spiced duck jus. T8 blends European and Asian flavors in dishes such as akingfish and Iberico Jamon sandwich with summer corn chowder, steamed clams. And for real local food, try Whampoa Club, which reinterprets classic Chinese dishes, like slow-cooked shark's fin in golden broth.

Make your reservations online now, since a number of restaurants have sold out their seatings.
