Restaurant Week in New York City is ON! If you are a foodie — or want to try one of the city's best restaurants at a discount (and who doesn't LOVE A BARGAIN?) — it's time to get online or on the phone and make a reservation!
If you're a picky eater, this is a great way to try a restaurant that you have heard about but aren't sure if you'll like the cuisine. So why sink hundreds of dollars for dinner with wine at a place you might not like when you can give it a test-drive (albeit with a limited menu offering) for an incredibly affordable price. Let's face it, you would spend about the same amount at Houlihan's for an appetizer, entree, and a beer. And in this instance, we're talking about some of the most respected restaurants in the business. It's also a great deal for bargain hunters and name droppers who want to say they've dine at the 21 Club, Aureole, or Bar Boulud — and no one has to know you only paid $25!
You've got until March 7th to enjoy three-course meals priced at $25 for lunch or $38 for dinner. And if you want to save even more, register with your American Express card and get an additional $5 back!
Keep in mind that these prix fixe Restaurant Week offers are only available Monday through Friday. You can make reservations through OpenTable.com but better hurry as tables at the hottest spots go fast and first.
