Diners who liked the inaugural "Restaurant Week" in January won't have to wait another four months for its return.

Twelve days of restaurant deals are being offered Sept. 8-19. More than 50 restaurants in the Charleston area will serve special $20 and $30 prix-fixe menus during that time.

Both casual and fine-dining establishments will be represented, from the family-owned Zeus Grill to the Ocean Room at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island. Tickets are not required, but reservations are strongly advised.

Offerings vary at each restaurant. For information and a list of participating restaurants, visit www.charlestonrestaurantweek.com.

The next installment of Restaurant Week is Jan. 14-22.
