Deets: NYC Restaurant Week Summer 2016 returns from July 25 to August 19 with three-course prix-fixe dining, featuring $25 lunches and $38 dinners at over 340 of the City’s finest restaurants.
NYC Restaurant Week is New York City's original dining celebration and a pioneer in the dining industry. As the country’s first-ever Restaurant Week, it debuted in 1992 when it was developed as a one-time culinary event to welcome the Democratic National Convention (DNC) to the City. Though created to appeal to delegates and other DNC attendees, the program—with 95 participating restaurants—also found a strong following among residents excited to dine at some of the City's top restaurants for a fraction of the usual cost—$19.92 for a three-course lunch—and who wanted NYC Restaurant Week to be a recurring event.
Over the past 23 years, NYC Restaurant Week has grown tremendously yet has remained committed to giving visitors and residents the opportunity to experience the quality, variety and hospitality that embody the NYC dining experience.
