The city’s biggest restaurant event ever is almost here, but you won’t want to wait to make these reservations.
The winter edition of NYC Restaurant Week (Jan. 18-Feb. 5) will have the most participants in its history, with 372 restaurants across the five boroughs serving special prix-fixe menus for lunch and dinner over 19 days. And with 34 cuisines represented, you’ll never eat the same dish twice.
Among returning favorites like Lafayette, Narcissa and Craftbar turning out three-course lunches ($25) and dinners ($38), there are also 41 newcomers like Jean Georges’ ABC Cocina and Cherche Midi with its unmissable burger. Here are some of your best bets, from trendy spots to great values.
