NYC's fine dining options are endless and delicious, but they can sometimes can be endlessly expensive, too. If your wallet is the only thing keeping you from stuffing your face at the best restaurants in town (there's always room for another taco, or a chocolate dessert, right?), Travelzoo has a solution. These popular Manhattan eateries are offering great deals. Grab one now, and invite a friend or a date to dine with you. Happy eating!
This upscale Midtown steakhouse offers prime cuts of Kobe and Wagyu beef, as well as seafood, cocktails and an extensive wine list. Treat yourself (and perhaps a date?) to a fancy steak dinner—you’ll get $80 worth of for $40 through July 10.
Brunch selections at this buzzy SoHo Mexican eatery—we even sent a pair of blind daters there a few weeks ago—include Pan Dulce de Leche (french toast with roasted banana and dulce de leche) and Huevos Motuleños (poached eggs, fried sweet plantains, peas, bacon and tomato-habanero salsa). For $45, you’ll get two brunch or taco dishes, and unlimited mimosas or bloody marys.
This unique Hudson Square space combines a fully functioning winery with live music, culinary classes and fine dining. For $45, you’ll get a cozy dinner for two in the Barrel Room, which includes two entrees, like hangar steak or lobster spaghetti, and a glass of wine per person. Go on an evening when there’s a concert, and make a night of it. Deals on brunch and wine and cheese classes are also available.
This Upper West Side Tuscan restaurant offers homemade pastas, pizzas and classic Italian entrees, steps from Central Park. For $39, you can get a weekend brunch for two, which includes two brunch entrees (think prosciutto eggs Benedict or baked eggs with tomato and parmesan), and unlimited brunch cocktails (mimosas, bellinis or bloody marys). Then go walk off that morning buzz in the park.
The Carlyle Restaurant
Get a three-course dinner for two at the iconic Upper East Side restaurant inside the Carlyle Hotel. The dining room is straight out of mad men, with leather armchairs, white tablecloths, mirrored alcoves and English hunting scene engravings. The $129 three-course meal includes an appetizer (foie gras, asparagus and burrata salad with prosciutto, you get the idea), an entree and a dessert, plus a glass of prosecco. A meal like that would ordinarily cost you well over $200, so go on a special occasion.
DBGB Kitchen & Bar
Relish the cuisine of chef Daniel Boulud at this American tavern/French brasserie blend on the Bowery. $99 will buy you an elaborate dinner for two, including one appetizer, two entrees, two desserts and two drinks. On a nice night, you can also watch the LES scene from the restaurant’s outdoor sidewalk seating.
Ken & Cook
The elaborate, contemporary American menu at this Nolita ranges from cheese and charcuterie to salmon tartare and rack of lamb. For $59, you and a buddy can stuff your faces with two appetizers, two entrees and two drinks. Or upgrade to a party of four, for a total of $115 (an even better deal).
