Opening of reservations for NYC Restaurant Week
This summer marks the 30th anniversary of NYC Restaurant Week, and to commemorate this milestone, the city’s food festival will run for 30 days, July 18 through August 21. (Saturdays are excluded from the program; Sunday participation is optional and varies by restaurant.)
Reservations are now open, NYC & Company announced. A total of 600 restaurants (including 46 on the Upper West Side) will offer more than 60 distinct cuisines in 85 neighborhoods across the five boroughs.
The restaurants will offer two-course lunches and three-course dinners for $30, $45 and $60, “based on individual restaurant prices.” More than 100 restaurants will also be giving away $30 bottles of wine to commemorate the 30th anniversary.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the 30th anniversary of NYC Restaurant Week this summer, a milestone that coincides with the palpable vibrancy of our city right now,” said Fred Dixon, President and CEO of NYC & Company. “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.”
NYC Restaurant Week was launched in 1992 – and 14 of the original participating restaurants will return this summer: Barbetta, Carmine’s (Upper West Side), 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.
