This year, Arlington has a prime steakhouse for Restaurant Week.

Mercury Chophouse is serving a $49 dinner special in its new top-floor Lamar Boulevard restaurant, and a $39 dinner and $20 lunch in its Fort Worth location in the Tower downtown.

The menus are similar, featuring a filet duo in peppercorn sauce with lyonnaise potatoes, roasted salmon, shrimp-and-grits or a New York strip, with salad and either peach cobbler or cheesecake.
