Restaurant Week started in 1992 and has become a twice a year event. This year hundreds of restaurants will participate including, Nobu, Spice Market, Tao, Dos Caminos, Indochine and more.
This year Restaurant Week will run for over three weeks and you can make reservations at the over 300 restaurants around NYC that are offering the deal. Some establishments only participate in the lunch deal while some participate in both. The price for dinner has increased from $35 to $38 this year while lunch has increased $.93, Gothamist reports.
Summer restaurant week occurs in June or July.
"NYC Restaurant Week is New York City's original dining celebration and a pioneer in the dining industry. As the country's first-ever restaurant week, it debuted in 1992 when it was developed as a one-time culinary event to welcome the Democratic National Convention (DNC) to the City." NYCgo.com's website states. "Though created to appeal to delegates and other DNC attendees, the program-with 95 participating restaurants-also found a strong following among residents excited to dine at some of the City's top restaurants for a fraction of the usual cost-$19.92 for a three-course lunch-and who wanted NYC Restaurant Week to be a recurring event."
The NYCgo.com website has a full list of participating restaurants as well as a section for making reservations, featured menus and recipes.
