New York City Restaurant Week is among the five boroughs’ best food holidays. Traditionally, New Yorkers (and a few lucky tourists) clear their dining schedules and make reservations at the city’s best special occasion spots, newcomers and all-time favorite restaurants for deals unseen the rest of the year. Hundreds of destinations participate citywide, with menu prices below their typical tabs. 

What is Restaurant Week in NYC?

New York City Restaurant Week actually comes twice a year, in summer and in winter, and each edition lasts for about a month. Restaurants curate their menus and produce prix-fixe selections for brunch, lunch, dinner and sometimes all three. Saturdays are excluded, so only regular menu prices apply at that time. 

Gone is summer 2021's $125 “Signature Dining Experience." Last Winter's Restaurant Week's season’s eatings were $29, $39 and $59 for two-course lunch and dinner bookings. And Summer, 2022's price tiers are $30, $45 and $60.  

When is Restaurant Week in NYC?

Reservations for Summer Restaurant Week 2022 are open now. Bookings began on July 18 and are available until August 21. That's nearly five weeks to choose from oodles of NYC classics and recent culinary additions.
