New York City Restaurant Week is in Full Swing through Labor Day Weekend

It’s that time of the year when cities around the country start imitating the “best”: New York City’s Restaurant Week.  Started in 1992, the annual event has grown by its number of weeks and participants and has just been extended through September 6.

Here’s the deal:  you pay $24.07 for a three-course prix-fixe lunch and $35 for a three-course prix-fixe dinner.  Some restaurants include the specials on Saturdays and Sundays; others don’t, so ask when you reserve.  Some restaurants will even continue the special pricing past the official end date.

More than 170 restaurants are participating in the extended Restaurant Weeks, so there’s no reason not to indulge and indulge and indulge.  The country’s best chefs await you.

Here are 25 of the choice restaurants that are participating right now:

Adour Alain Ducasse – French, Midtown East

    Nobu and Tanuki Tavern are my absolute FAVS. I hope I can get a res! Do you think I have a better shot at Open Table or calling directly? I know restaurants usually only give a certain number of available reservations to OT..

  2. Mike says:

    Are any NJ restaurants participating?

  3. You can always start with OpenTable so you accrue points and if they are closed out, then call the restaurant.

    I am not aware of any participating NJ restaurants. Sorry. P.S. This column is All About NY!!!
