Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of NYC Restaurant Week January 16–February 10 (Monday–Friday) with 20 incredible days of three-course prix-fixe dining, featuring $24.07 lunch and $35.00 dinner at more than 300 restaurants.
NYC Restaurant Week is New York City’s original dining celebration and a pioneer in the dining industry. As the country’s first-ever restaurant week, it debuted in 1992 when it was developed as a one-time culinary event to welcome the Democratic National Convention (DNC) to the City. Though created to appeal to delegates and other DNC attendees, the program—with 95 participating restaurants—also found a strong following among residents excited to dine at some of the City’s top restaurants for a fraction of the usual cost—$19.92 for a three-course lunch—and who wanted NYC Restaurant Week to be a recurring event.
Over the past 20 years, NYC Restaurant Week has grown tremendously yet has remained committed to giving visitors and residents the opportunity to experience the quality, variety and hospitality that embody the NYC dining experience.
This year, in honor of the 20th Anniversary, NYC Restaurant Week is, for the first time ever, a 20-day event. Adding extra days to NYC Restaurant Week only underscores just how many reasons there are to celebrate this milestone for one of the City’s most exciting and anticipated events.
