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, including—for the first time ever—a food hall! Here's the lowdown on the deals you can get at Time Out Market New York.

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 last summer’s $125 “Signature Dining Experience," but Winter Restaurant Week’s entry price is up since last season. The lowest tier has jumped to $29 from $22. This season’s eatings are $29, $39 and $59 for two-course lunch and dinner bookings at participating restaurants. Tax, tip and drinks are not included. 

When is Restaurant Week in NYC?

Winter Restaurant Week, 2022 runs from January 18 to February 13. Just in time to pay full price for your Valentine’s Day dinner.
