Here's something to perk up your grey, slush-filled day: Reservations for NYC Restaurant Week, held from February 16th through March 6th, kick off today. And as is tradition, the twice-annual festival will feature three courses served at more than 300 participating restaurants for lunch at $25 and dinner at $38.

This year's lineup includes Restaurant Week newcomers like Chris Jaeckle's Japanese-inflected Venetian spot All'onda (home to Italian hybrid ramen), a duo of fresh Andrew Carmellini spots (Little Park, Bar Primi), the recently reset Tavern on the Green with new chef Jeremiah Tower, and Root & Bone, whose crazy-good fried chicken nabbed the top spot on our 100 Best Dishes list. Clear your calendars—you've got some eating to do.
