New York City may have some of the best restaurants in the world–and it’s certainly got one of the most diverse dining scenes–but it’s not always easy to eat out and not break the bank. For that reason, I get excited when Restaurant Week—that all-too-brief time when a bunch of the city’s restaurants offer three-course prix-fixe lunches and dinners for bargain prices—rolls around a couple times a year
Well…it’s that time again! NYC Summer Restaurant Week, originally scheduled to run only from July 12-25, has been extended all the way through Labor Day (Monday, September 6). Prices for the meals have remained the same for the fifth straight year – $24.07 for three-course prix-fixe lunch and $35 for three-course prix-fixe dinner (not including beverage, gratuities and taxes). Remember: Saturdays are excluded from Restaurant Week, and on Sundays the restaurants have the option to offer the menu deal or not.
Here are some of my recommendations among the restaurants participating in the extended Summer Restaurant Week:
Blue Water Grill (lunch only)
Dovetail (lunch only)
Tabla (lunch only)
