Mmm mmm mmm. It’s that time of year again. Restaurants all around New York City have banned together with three-course, prix fixe meals to celebrate the best food they have to offer. I’m talking about none other than Restaurant Week, a diner-on-a-budget’s dream.
Hundreds of restaurants are participating in this event from all corners of Manhattan, so no matter what neighborhood you’re in, you’ll find something to love! Three-course meals are $24.07 for lunch and $35 for dinner which, as any New Yorker will tell you, is a great price for fine dining.
The best part of Restaurant Week is that apparently, nobody ever taught the organizers how many days there are in a week. While most cities restaurant weeks last only seven days, Manhattan’s Restaurant Week runs from July 16th to August 10th. That’s almost a full month of great food and even better deals.
Of course, every year restaurant week has its flops. Some restaurants get skimpy with the portions, others have been rumored to pre-cook meals, but we’ll keep our ears out and let you know what we’re hearing. Most restaurants will blow your mind with delight, so nobody wants to accidently end up at one of the few bad apples.
Over the course of the next 3+ weeks, when you’re taking your double decker bus tours, remember that we have nearly 40 stops throughout NYC. No matter which restaurant you’re thinking of dining in, we have a hop-on hop-off stop in the neighborhood. Jump off you bus, have some lunch and then get right back on when you’re done!
New York City. Great Food. Double decker bus tours. Oh, how I love this town in the summer.
