BLT Restaurants are celebrating the sixth anniversary of the original BLT Steak restaurant in Manhattan and, yay for us, we all benefit! Yup, for one day only — tomorrow, March 3 — patrons can enjoy lunch and dinner for cheap-for-BLT prices.

Executive Chef and Partner Laurent Tourondel says, ?Thank you to all of our customers and friends who have supported BLT Restaurants over the last six years. We are grateful for a fantastic run and look forward to celebrating many future birthdays together.?

We’re talking main courses like New York strip steaks, Dover Sole and rib eye for $33.04. Representing BLT Steak?s birth date, March 3, 2004. Normally the strip steak is $37, Dover Sole is $50 and a bone-in rib eye is $36.

Sides like the jalapeno mashed potatoes and Hen of the Woods mushrooms will also be priced down from $8-$10 to only $3.03.

However, I’m most excited about the desserts and cocktails, which will also be priced at only $3.03! Desserts are usually 10 bucks while signature BLT cocktails run for $14-$15.

Cocktails include:

  • BLT Punch: Captain Morgan, Grand Marnier, lime juice and ginger beer __
  • Agua Fresca: P.I.N.K vodka, agave nectar, lime cucumber and cilantro
  • Gin-ne Sais Quoi: Bombay gin, Domaine de Canton and lemon juice

True, cocktails sound m’OK but, hey, they’re only $3.03. That means five of those equal about one drink at most schmancy L.A. bars. Perfect if all you want to do is get buzzed.

BTW, this is the only fine print I could find on the press release about this deal:

Birthday specials are valid at lunch and dinner on Wednesday, March 3, 2010 at all BLT Steak and BLT Prime locations in the U.S. Certain exclusions apply. Reservations recommended.

Apparently you don’t have to go here for a whole meal to enjoy the deal. Discounted drinks and desserts can be enjoyed a la carte.
