NYC Restaurant Week

Try out New York's best restaurants at affordable prices

Attention food enthusiasts: NYC Restaurant Week will be back in the winter, meaning you can look forward to enjoying cheap meals all over the city. Thousands of travelers and locals look forward to this event every year because it’s a great opportunity to try new cuisines or simply enjoy top-notch meals at decent prices.

What is NYC Restaurant Week?

NYC Restaurant Week is a bi-annual event that takes place every summer and winter since 1982. Back then only a few restaurants participated in the promotion, whereas this year’s event counts over 380 participating restaurants. Over time, the length of the promotion has been extended, so that now we can enjoy almost a full month of great, affordable food instead of just one week.

When is NYC Restaurant Week?

The NYC Restaurant Week event takes place every summer and every winter in New York, typically in January/February as well as July/August.

In 2021 the Restaurant Week Date takes place between July 19th and August 22nd.

NYC Broadway Week sometimes overlaps with Restaurant Week.

What you get:

NYC Restaurant Week Menu

Everyone who’s been to New York will agree that this is an incredibly attractive offer!

Please note: The promotion is not valid on Saturdays and does not include tax, tip or drinks.

Participating restaurants

Among this season’s NYC Restaurant Week’s participants, you will find new trendy restaurants but also well established fine-dine restaurants. Cuisines include Contemporary American, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, French, Mediterranean, Greek, Middle Eastern, Thai, Japanese and Korean – just to name a few.
