Summer is here and NYC Restaurant Week® is rapidly approaching. For meeting and event planners, this is a great time to try some of New York’s top cuisine for a fraction of the price. Many people consider New York the culinary capital of the world, as there are a tremendous range of fantastic dining options. Your guests will love to try the different options during or after their scheduled events.
What is it?
NYC Restaurant Week® is held during the summer from July 23rd through August 17th. It is organized twice yearly by NYC & Company and highlights 380 top restaurants in the city. Each participating restaurant serves 2 course prix fixed meals at a fraction of the price of their normal menu. Lunch costs only $26 while dinner costs $42.
Most restaurants do not serve guests these promotional menus during the entire period, but rather offer their menu during a single week. Time and time again, we’ve heard that people in town visiting or attending meetings and conferences love to partake in the different dining options of restaurant week.
With 380 of the best restaurants in the city participating, choosing just a couple to highlight for readers is a real challenge. A favorite however is ABC Kitchen is located in the trendy Union Square neighborhood in Manhattan. Michelin starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten created the restaurant to serve the freshest organic and local ingredients possible. Located within ABC Carpet & Home and sharing space with its sister restaurant, ABC Cocina, this restaurant is a destination for visitors and locals alike.
For those visitors that love a good steak, American Cut Steakhouse is a favored choice. This restaurant located conveniently in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan is one of the top steakhouses in New York. American Cut offers an exceptional menu of food and spirits in a modern setting punctuated by beautiful art deco accents and architecture.
