Scanning down the list of the hundreds of participating restaurants, many restaurants stand out, like Ai Fiori, Morimoto and Red Rooster. But then the press release adds some necessary info: "New NYC Restaurant Week participants this season include, Kin Shop, The Dutch, La Mar Cebicheria Peruana, Loi Restaurant, Mas (La Grillade), North End Grill, Vic & Anthony’s and Zio Ristorante." We'd especially recommend booking up those first two places.
As in most years past, the three-course, prix-fixed meals will remain set at $24.07 for lunch and $35 for dinner (excluding beverages, taxes and gratuities).
Pro tip: AMEX cardholders always get something special out of NYCRW. This season, it's a $20 statement credit if you register you card for the promotion here and then dine (and pay with) your AMEX at least four times for NYCRW.
