NYC Restaurant Week will run from July 22 to August 16 with 20-plus days of three-course prix-fixe dining, featuring $25 lunches and $38 dinners at nearly 300 of the City’s finest restaurants. It’s a great excuse for parents to book a sitter and head out for a great meal.
Some of the restaurants in Lower Manhattan include: Atrio Wine Bar & Restaurant (after dinner visit the Conrad Hotel outdoor bar with the great views of the Hudson), Blue Smoke (best fried chicken in Lower Manhattan), Haru on Wall Street (great atmosphere and people watching) or Les Halles on John Street (great wine list).
History of NYC Restaurant Week…it 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. 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.
Date: Monday, July 22nd (through August 16th)
