Online reservations are up and running for New York’s Winter Restaurant Week, which runs January 24 through February 6 (though in all likelihood restaurants may extend the end date like they do every year). This year, the three-course prix-fixe deal is $24.07 for lunch and $35 for dinner.
Reservations can be made on NYC & Company’s website as well as by calling restaurants the traditional way. Over 300 restaurants are participating, but choose wisely. Just because a restaurant is participating doesn’t mean that it’s serving food identical to what it serves at full price. So, be sure to scan the Restaurant Week menus ahead of time to ensure you’re getting the bang for your buck. If a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.
