Here it comes again: for its 20th year, Restaurant Week is back in New York City! From January 16th to February 10th. So, not a week, but 20 days! Restaurant Week started in 1992, during the National Democratic Convention where restaurateurs proposed prix fixe meals for visitors. Twenty years after, it is still popular!
This time, you can get an appetizer, one entree and a dessert for $24.07 for lunch and $35 for dinner. This is a great opportunity to discover restaurants or to go to places that are usually expensive, but it is true that a lot of restaurants will sacrifice quality during this event. That is why I always tell people to avoid Steakhouses: I had bad experiences at Beacon, Steak Frites or Dino & Harry in the past. On the other hand, I discovered good restaurants like Fig & Olives.
