The “week” actually runs for 19 days from January 23rd to February 10th — ample time to enjoy a variety of restaurants with the family. With a three-course prix fixe lunch costing $29 and dinner $42, Restaurant Week provides an incentive to try out some new places.
Be careful with restrictions — most participating restaurants exclude Saturdays and only some restaurants offer the special on Sundays. Some do lunch and dinner and some only dinner or only lunch so ensure that the day and time fall within the specials offered. You don’t want to be stuck with a hefty bill you didn’t expect! Gratuities, beverages, and tax are not included.
In New York, the restaurant choices are endless, so you can try American (traditional and new), Pacific Rim, Laotian, Japanese, Indian, Mediterranean, French, Italian, Mexican and North African. Be adventurous and dig into a new culinary adventure.

Fancy some French fare in a chic setting? Daniel Boulud’s Café has earned 3 stars in the NY Times and a star in the Michelin Guide. The emphasis is on seasonal, classic fare introducing a little frisson of excitement from exotic cuisines. For lunch maybe try the Arugula Salad to start with white peach, black pepper ricotta and honey vinaigrette, and for mains, the Pan Seared Pork Loin or Eggplant Ravioli topped off with the Blueberry Pavlova as dessert. They only do lunch for Restaurant Week – not dinner.
