This summer marks the 30th anniversary of NYC Restaurant Week, and to commemorate this milestone, the citywide food fest will be running for 30 days — from July 18 to August 21. (Saturdays are excluded from the program; Sunday participation is optional and varies by restaurant.)
Reservations are now open, NYC & Company has announced. A total of 600 restaurants will be offering over 60 distinct cuisines across 85 neighborhoods within the five boroughs.
Restaurants will be offering two-course lunches and three-course dinners for $30, $45 and $60, “dependent on individual restaurant price points.” More than 100 restaurants will also offer $30 bottles of wine to commemorate the 30th anniversary.
“We are pleased to celebrate the 30th anniversary of NYC Restaurant Week this summer, a major milestone coinciding with the palpable vibrancy in our city right now,” said Fred Dixon, President and CEO at NYC & Company. “For 30 years, the program has offered exceptional deals to diners while also lifting and celebrating the restaurant community across all five boroughs, underscoring the truly authentic dining scene offered only in New York City.”
NYC Restaurant Week launched in 1992 — and 14 of the original participating restaurants will be back to serve this summer: Barbetta, Carmine’s (Upper West Side), Dock’s Oyster Bar, Gage & Tollner, Gallagher’s Steak House, The Palm, Sardi’s, Shun Lee West, Sylvia’s, Tavern on the Green, Tribeca Grill, The Russian Tea Room, Union Square Café, and Victor’s Café.
