The summer edition of NYC Restaurant Week begins next Monday, and the more leisurely pace of things in the city may mean you actually get to take advantage of the lunch specials as well.
From July 20 to Aug. 14, chefs at over 360 restaurants are trotting out three courses ($25 lunch, $38 dinner) that best represent what they do, so it’s a great way to get a good sense of their style. Tag your foodie Instas with #NYCRestaurantWeek for a chance at gift cards throughout the event, because the only thing better than cheap eats is more cheap eats.
We scoured the long list and found five interesting menus and great values to book now.
The one where summer rules: Riverpark
It doesn’t get more farm-to-table than having your own garden, which is just one of the ways Tom Colicchio’s East Riverside restaurant is keeping things fresh. The food is ever-changing modern American dictated by the city’s greenmarkets and local farms, and for Restaurant Week lunches you’ll have your choice of the entire menu. 450 E. 29th St.
