It’s time for the annual summer edition of New York Restaurant Week!

Restaurant Week dates are July 23 – August 17, 2018.

The way Restaurant Week works is that restaurants offer 2-course lunch and 3-course dinner menus at a set special price. There are many restaurants to choose from. Reservations are suggested and you can make reservations online at the Restaurant Week website.

Meal prices are $26 for a 2-Course Lunch or $42 for a 2-Course Dinner.

Restaurants offer a minimum of three choices for appetizers and three choices for entrées at lunch ($26). Restaurants offer a minimum of three choices for appetizers, three choices for entrées and at least two desserts at dinner ($42).

This year’s participating restaurants are grouped into “collections” to help you choose where you’d like to dine. Some collection names are a little more obvious than others. There are NYC Classics, Best-Kept Secrets,  BYO SPF (patio dining), Squad Goals (group-friendly), Swipe Right (romantic), Diner is the Show (big on presentation), Expense It (business-friendly), and Sunday Funday (brunch).
