It’s Restaurant Week in New York until March 7, a welcome excuse for city dwellers young and old alike in the city to try restaurants they would normally consider out of their price range. The lunch menu is a fixed price of $25 and the dinner menu is a fixed price of $38, with a little variation depending on wine, cocktail, or specific dish preferences. Dining experiences can include reasonable portions and excellent food, like at the now-closed Hurricane Club. Reservations are key here, as most Restaurant Week providers will stare at walk-in diners blankly when they ask for a table.
