There are a limitless number of a excuses for why you need to go to a restaurant in NYC. Now, there’s one more: NYC Restaurant Week starts Monday, July 24. Until August 18, hundreds of restaurants in the New York area will offer prix fixes menus for reasonable prices.
The French restaurants on the menu number at 39, giving you more than enough choices for where to gorge yourself during the three weeks that make up restaurant week. Eat dinner in Bar Boulud‘s cavernous wine cellar, or have a Provencal lunch with friends in homey Claudette. (This is probably your only opportunity to eat in Bagatelle without spending an arm and a leg, so take advantage!)
There are two prix fixe menus—lunch ($29) and dinner ($42)—available every day except Saturday. For all the New Yorkers concerned that they’ll have to spend their weekly dining-out budget on a meal that’s not brunch, fear not! On Sundays, a prix fixe brunch menu is available for $29. Each of the menus offers a three-course meal, and does not include drinks, tax, or tip.
Reservations can be made on Open Table.
