    At this splashy Dream Downtown spot, Morimoto alum Michael Armstrong rolls out Yucatán-inspired tacos (soft-shell crab), quesadillas (habanero and roasted tomatoes) and large-format dishes (whole suckling pig), complemented by tequila-spiked quaffs like a classic Paloma. Restaurant Week specials will be served for dinner from Sunday through Friday.

    The Cecil

    Harlem's Afro-Asian-American brasserie will serve globe-trotting eats including deviled duck eggs with jalapeno-smoked bacon salad to start, main dishes like curry-crusted cod atop congee, finished with desserts like chocolate-sesame mousse with candied orange during weekday dinner service.

    Costata

    Meaning “rib eye” in Italian, this SoHo steakhouse also offers seafood and their signature hand-made pastas to go along with their meatier entrees. Expect dishes like sea scallop crudo with black truffle vinaigrette, bacon-marmalade–slathered burgers and ricotta-filled pansotti in a red wine sugo at weekday lunch.

    Clement

    Tucked inside the Peninsula New York, the American restaurant will host lunch and dinner every weekday, offering plates like Black sea bass soaked in duck broth and almond gazpacho studded with apple and Peekytoe crab, plus a graham cracker disc with chocolate ganache and vanilla marshmallow reminiscent of a campfire S’more.

    Telepan Local

    At the downtown follow-up to his slow-food staple Telepan, Bill Telepan gets downright playful, serving slider-like foie-gras “jammers,” a grilled cheese–meets–pan con tomate hybrid and Buffalo quail with celery root and blue cheese. Along with weekly lunch and dinner, the Tribeca restaurant will also host Sunday-night dinners during Restaurant Week.
