The Scoop on Restaurant Week

NYC Restaurant Week is upon us once again. New Yorker's have 5 more days to dine at some of best restaurants our great city has to offer and at modest prices. All RW meals are chosen from a 3 course prix-fixe menu for Lunch of Dinner at $24.07 and $35.00 respectively.

The concept is simple, the hard part is deciding where to eat for these 3 reasons:
1. The Spot: RW is a great opportunity for exploration and satisfying your curiosity. Iron Chef's Bobby Flay, Mario Batali and Masaharu Morimoto all have participating restaurants, why not get a taste. Ever wonder why celebs flock to TAO? Now you check it out with out paying celeb prices.

2. The Menu: This could make or break your RW experience. Some RW menus are better off ignored because the selection isn't as appetizing as the regular menu or as filling and you might get a much better meal for only a extra few dollars at the same place. Check the restaurant's RW menu BEFORE you make your reservations.

3. Availability: Be conscious of when you make your reservations. RW is actually 2 weeks, but it excludes the weekends. On the upside, some places are extending the menu until Labor Day! Also, look out for the few restaurants only offering a lunch menu when looking for a dinner spot.

Once you have made your selection. You can make reservation on OpenTable.com or by calling directly. Bon Appetite!!
