What do New Yorkers love? A good deal and a good meal. NYC Restaurant Week brings us all that from July 23 to August 17. Nearly 400 restaurants will offer prix-fixe brunch, lunch, and dinner menus for reasonable prices.
The participating French restaurants number at 38, giving you plenty of choices for where to gorge yourself during this semi-annual time of the year. We’d recommend stopping by Bagatelle for a luxurious dinner of grains and wild mushrooms, “Poulet Roti à la Truffe,” and a dessert called “Decadence,” which truly lives up to its name. Craving pâté, moules marinière, and tarte au chocolat? Definitely head to Bar Boulud for dinner. For lunch, try La Sirene, where your mouth will water for their soupe à l’oignon and steak tartare.
There are two prix-fixe menus — a two-course lunch or brunch ($26) and a three-course dinner ($42) — available every day except Saturday. The cost of the prix-fixe menu does not include the cost of drinks, tax, or tip.
Reservations can be made on Open Table.
