New York’s beloved culinary event that gives diners the chance to eat at the city’s best restaurants with discounted prix-fixe menus is back for its 30th season. NYC & Company, the city’s tourism agency, announced last week that reservations are now open at 600 participating restaurants in 85 neighborhoods. The program, launched in 1992, lasts one month from July 18 to August 21.
Throughout the restaurant week, diners can choose from a selection of two-course lunches at $30, $45 and $60 and three-course dinners at $30, $45 and $60. Over 100 of the participating restaurants will be giving away $30 bottles of wine to celebrate the program’s 30th anniversary.
Fourteen of the restaurants that participated in the original 1992 event are part of this year’s lineup Barbetta, Carmine’s, Dock’s Oyster Bar, Gage & Tollner, Gallagher’s Steak House, The Palm, Sardi’s, Shun Lee West, Sylvia’s, Tavern on the Green, Tribeca Grill, The Russian Tea Room, Union Square Café and Victor’s Café.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the 30th anniversary of NYC Restaurant Week this summer, a major milestone coinciding with the palpable vibrancy of our city right now,” said Fred Dixon, president and CEO of NYC & Company, in a statement. “For 30 years, the program has provided exceptional offerings to diners while elevating and celebrating the restaurant community in all five boroughs, highlighting the truly authentic dining scene offered only in New York City.”
Mastercard, one of the event’s sponsors, is offering customers the opportunity to pre-register and earn $10 credit on three transactions of $45 or more while dining at any participating restaurant up to to July 31.
