5 Places to Eat During NYC Restaurant Week

Hi friends!

Well, it’s around 4PM and as my good friend Winnie the Pooh says, “I have a rumbly in my tumbly.”

NYC Restaurant Week is quickly approaching, a time for locals and out-of-towners alike to experience 3-course meals for an affordable price.

  • $24.07 for Lunch
  • $35.00 for Dinner

Here are our office’s top picks for where to eat:

1. Mesa Grill – Because who doesn’t want to catch a glimpse of Bobby Flay?

2. Blue Water Grill – A former bank transformed into a seafood restaurant. Neat!

3. Fig & Olive – For those who dream about dipping hearty bread into 3 various types of olive oil. Yum.

4. Blue Smoke – Mouth watering BBQ and live jazz. I’m sold!

5. Spice Market – The vibe and decor here are amazing. Now if only my tiny Upper East Side apartment would have the same feeling…
