Restaurant Weeks are amazing in almost every way — except for one. How do you choose where to dine? Saying yes to one restaurant often means saying no to another. This year, during New York City Restaurant Week, I’m dining out nearly every day. There are too many restaurants on the list for me to hit them all — so which will get my business during these bustling weeks?
I booked out the first week (thankfully there are two!) with places I’ve either never dined at or those with lavish menus and higher prices at which I cannot be trusted to not break the bank. Seriously, my appetite bests my accountant any day of the week. The prix-fixe menus offered during NYC Restaurant Week encourage me to visit more expensive restaurants while staying within my fiscal limits in the face of culinary temptation (Nobu, anyone?). I’m filling my second week with a bunch of familiar favorites to see (and taste) what they’re offering diners this year.
Restaurateurs are raising the bar on themselves as of late, delivering better dining experiences for your dollar, so this promises to be the best NYC Restaurant Week yet.
