New York City’s Most Fabulous Pastime: Dining Out – It’s NYC Restaurant Week

NYC Restaurant Week is the highly anticipated twice-yearly celebration of dining throughout New York City. With prix-fixe meals at over 380 of the City’s finest restaurants (two-course lunch, $26.00; three-course dinner, $42.00), the program invites diners to sample the incredible array of eateries that make up NYC’s culinary culture.

NYC Restaurant Week Summer 2018 runs from July 23 through August 17. To book your table, visit the official NYC Restaurant Week page, the only place to find a comprehensive list of NYC Restaurant Week menus. Browse by neighborhood, cuisine, meal (lunch or dinner), or search for your favorite restaurant. Make your reservation today!

Over the past 26 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.


Score a top table – Having trouble getting a table at one of the City’s popular restaurants? Try booking for lunch: many sought-after eateries participate in the program only for the midday meal.

Check your calendar – Many diners reserve tables only during the first five days of the program, but NYC Restaurant Week actually runs for four weeks—leaving many opportunities to recover from your food coma and book again.

Explore new cuisines – Speaking of trying something new, every NYC Restaurant Week is a chance to expand your palate with a novel cuisine.

Drink it all in – Thirsty? Some restaurants pair beverages—wine, specialty cocktails and the like—with their meals, typically for around $15.00–$25.00 extra.

Let Instagram be your guide – Check #nycrestaurantweek on Instagram to see what dishes and restaurants are trending. Pro tip: Search the geotags of participating restaurants to see what looks delicious before you book. When you dine, post your own photos and tag them with #nycrestaurantweek!
