NYC Announces Dates for Restaurant Week Summer 2014

A restaurant week dessert at Ai Fiori

It's about that time of the year, as the dates for the Summer 2014 New York City Restaurant Week were just officially announced. Foodies, start your engines (and start looking into flights and hotels) to enjoy the $25 Lunch and $38 3-course Dinner menus at over 300 of the city's best restaurants. The dates are extra long this year, approaching more of a Restaurant Month than a Restaurant Week: July 21–August 15.

Reservations aren't open yet, but that doesn't mean it's too early to set up your short list. If you're curious about what to expect with a Restaurant Week meal, feel free to check out our photo galleries of our meals from the last couple seasons. These were Ai Fiori, The Modern, Park Avenue Summer, The Russian Tea Room and L'Ecole.

Reservations open July 9 at their official website. Don't worry; the second that the restaurant list becomes available, we'll be on it like gold leaf on a dark chocolate torte.

Jaunted's Top Five Picks for New York Winter Restaurant Week 2012

January 5, 2012 at 1:47 PM | by | Comments (0)


The bar at Red Rooster

Yesterday we made the happy announcement that reservations are open for NYC's Winter Restaurant Week. Now, we're going to come through on our promise to let you in on our top picks.

Without further ado, our 5 top picks for New York Restaurant Week Winter 2012:

· Red Rooster, Harlem
3-course lunch for $24.07
If you can get yourself up to Harlem for a midday meal, then this is our highest recommendation. Not only is Red Rooster the current talk of the town, but it's actually worthy of the hype. It's soul food with a Swedish touch, on account of (Top Chef Masters winner) Chef Marcus Samuelsson's mixed African-Scandi background. We just hit up Red Rooster ourselves for their Sunday Gospel Brunch and ummm yeah. We'll be back real soon. Do not miss the Cornbread, Mac & Greens (omg) and Fried Yard Bird.

You Can 谢谢 Us Later: Shanghai Restaurant Week Opens Reservations

August 18, 2011 at 5:16 PM | by | Comments (0)

Restaurant Week deals aren't just for major cities in the United States, nosireebob. Believe it or not, Shanghai and their multitude of fancy-pants eateries have been getting in on the discounted 3-course meal act for several years now, and the deals are again good from September 5-11.

Alack and alas, the majority of the 70 restaurants on the bill either specialize in western cuisine or call the 4-and 5-star hotels of the city home. This is not a deterrent! Hotel restaurants in Shanghai are not the hotel restaurants you're thinking of; they offer some of the most diverse menus, dramatic views and dressed-up evenings you can find in the Pearl of the Orient, and with a three-course dinner costing 248 RMB, or about $38 or a three-course lunch at 118 RMB, or $17, it's only good news.

The city is a bit like our photo above—it's completely traditional and affordable in some areas, but those parts are almost immediately followed by the high-gloss modern neighborhoods with their famous-chef restaurants and gold gilt bathroom faucets. You've just got to learn to love both, and getting the latter fancy food for cheap helps.

Reservations opened TODAY! Go here to get them.

Sin City Will Give Itself Over to Gluttony for Las Vegas Restaurant Week

August 15, 2011 at 2:11 PM | by | Comments (0)


Yes, that is a donut on top of fruit salad

Sometimes in life, you just crave a nice, white-tablecloth meal with ice water in glass goblets and an attentive waiter who recommends the fish. Sometimes, however, you can't always indulge that desire if you also want to travel, buy nice things, pay rent/mortgage, etcetera etcetera. This is why we rejoice whenever Restaurant Weeks come around, when top-notch restaurants discount three-course prix-fixe meals to a level where it's totally cool to have a spontaneous date or skip the carry-out, opting instead for the white tablecloths and glass water goblets.

The next city to feed its foodies is Las Vegas, during their restaurant week(s) August 29 - September 11. Unlike the simplicity of NY Restaurant Week, Las Vegas will have different pricing levels based on level of restaurant and quality of meal: $20.10 & $30.01 Lunches and $30.10 & $50.10 Dinners. What you choose really depends on your budget and what must-eat-at restaurant you want to cross off your bucket list.

Told Ya So: New York Restaurant Week Extended Through Labor Day

July 25, 2011 at 1:05 PM | by | Comments (0)

Dear fellow foodies: we have good news and we have awesome news. The good news is that NYC Restaurant Week Summer 2011 has been extended until September 5. The awesome news is that the prices—$24.07 for lunch and $35 for dinner—remain the same, the restaurants are still game all the way through Labor Day, and visitors to the city for the next couple weeks can enjoy the extension on the prix fixe meal deals.

Granted, Restaurant Week has become something more like Restaurant Month the last few times it's been offered, but you're not hearing any complaints from us. In fact, we kind of prefer these extra few weeks because the hype has died down, many diners have exceeded their Restaurant Week budgets already, and thus it's easier grabbing those primo reservations (especially when we're talking top lunches).

To take advantage of Restaurant Month, go here to see what restaurants are taking part in which meals, and even have a glance at the menus. Click through to book on OpenTable.com and check out our previous meal reviews here. We'll see you at the bar...
