NYC Restaurant Week

NYC Restaurant Week
Summer, Winter, French, Malaysian, Japan

Restaurant Week New York City is one of my favorite times of the year and now, since the event has been so successful, newer versions are starting to crop up everywhere, including ethnic Restaurant Weeks, like Japanese, Chinatown, Malyasian, French, Belgian and also neighborhood-specific restaurant weeks. A three-course dinner at the best restaurants in New York for $45? Sign me up!

Restaurant Week New York City allows us to eat at NYC’s best restaurants twice a year for bargain prices. Every Winter (Jan/Feb) and Summer (July/Aug), some of our best restaurants offer prix-fixe meals for $30, $45 or $60.

I love a good bargain almost as much as I love good food and NYC Restaurant Week allows everyone to enjoy a great meal at a great price in NYC. It almost feels like you’re stealing…only you’re not.

Restaurant Week New York City Insider Tips

  • The three-course, prix-fixe meals for $29 (lunch) and $42 (dinner) do not include beverages, tip or tax.
  • Most restaurants do not participate during the weekends, so don’t expect a Saturday night prime time table during Restaurant Week in NYC.
  • Review the menu in advance, as there are usually fewer choices on the RW menu. If you have eating restrictions, you may be limited.
  • Monday to Wednesday reservations tend to be easier to get than those for Thursday and Friday.
  • When making a reservation, be sure to mention you are booking for Restaurant Week.
  • When being seated, ask for the Restaurant Week menu if it is not offered.
  • Tip the server based on the usual price of the meal, not the Restaurant Week price, especially if you’ve had good service. Remember, the server is (or should be) doing their job exactly as they normally do when meals are full priced.


Top Picks for NYC Restaurant Week Steals & Deals

We can honestly recommend every single restaurant on the above list of NYC Restaurant Week restaurants. You can’t go wrong with any of them. Here are some other highlights:
