EARLY DINNERS ON THE CHEAP ... Responding to tough times, several Palo Alto restaurants are offering food at deep discounts off the menu prices. Round Table Pizza cuts pizza prices in half on Tuesdays at all three of its Palo Alto locations. Reposado, at 236 Hamilton Ave., has more than a dozen menu items marked half-off during its happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m. on weekdays. Most beers are also half off during that time. The lounge menu at Pampas at 529 Alma St. offers Brazilian appetizers at half-price between 5 and 7 p.m. And the Fish Market Restaurant at 3150 El Camino Real has a discounted happy-hour menu on weekdays beginning at 3:30 p.m. The big feature is the 95-cent oysters, according to one restaurant employee. "I've seen people order 18 oysters at a time. They shuck them right in front of you in the bar. It's a big draw," she said.
