Providing low-cost dining bargains, NYC Restaurant Week happens in the summer and winter. It runs through August 14 and includes over 300 restaurants. You can enjoy three-course dining deals for as low as $25 for lunch and $38 for dinner. The restaurants fill up fast so you may want to make a reservation well in advance.
Choosing a place to dine is the challenge. There are many websites for finding the top restaurants. Even these provide an overwhelming choice and themselves provide an extensive set of reading materials. You can enjoy ginger-papaya palomilla steak at Asia de Cuba or a heart-of-palm avocado mash and strawberry curry at The Cecil. Take in the flounder at Chefs Club or tacos with mashed fava beans with parmesan or chocolate ganache at Empellon Cocina.
Top restaurants across Midtown, Tribeca, Hell’s Kitchen, Chelsea, Times Square, and Williamsburg are participating. Across SoHo, Greenwich Village, and the Flatiron District and elsewhere have joined the movement as well. If going out to take advantage of the deals, be sure to check the fine print. The price deals do not apply on Saturdays and restaurants have the option of providing the same deals on Sundays.
Some of the best guides can be found online. One example is Opentable.com. Here you can find participating restaurants and starred ratings. The exact deal and availability times are listed and you can even click on the links to reserve for lunch or dinner. You can even see the number of reviews. Clicking on the link to each establishment provides access to each review and numerous other details. You can even see the exact location on a map.
Also, the best deals aren’t limited to Manhattan. You’ll also find participating restaurants in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and The Bronx.
