NYC Restaurant Week Summer 2023

NYC Summer Restaurant Week
July 24-August 20, 2023. Reservations Open July 6th

A three-course dinner at the best restaurants in New York for $45? Sign me up! One of my favorite times of the year. I love a good bargain almost as much as I love good food. It almost feels like you're stealing..only you're not.
