Restaurant Week Continues a New York Tradition of Rare Hits and Mostly Misses

See also

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. More often than not, the sure way to avoid a four hour dinner at restaurant week is to avoid the dinner scene altogether. There is a marked difference in the crowds and service at lunchtime. If dinner is non-negotiable, just be warned- the lines and wait time could have the hungry customer standing around at the bar indefinitely where cocktails are not part of the bargain. Still, the opportunity to try discover a new favorite restaurant outweighs the risk.

Here’s a Few Options-
Dos Caminos
Spice Market
Vic & Anthony’s
DBGB Kitchen
