Just when it seems winter can’t get any testier – ice, snow, more snow – Restaurant Week 2014 breezes into town February 17 through March 7 with its offer of agreeably priced prix fixe lunches and dinners. Can spring be far away?
Well, yes. But in the meantime you can feast on $25 lunches and $38 dinners, three-courses each. And that’s sweet.
Thirty of this winter’s 291 participants are at hotels so you can stay the night if you want to try out the breakfast.
In addition to the perennials, this year’s list includes several newcomers – Calle Ocho at the Excelsior, Sirio at The Pierre and Villard Michael Richard Bistro at The New York Palace. (The Carlyle and the View at the Marriott Marquis dropped out.)
In other words, there’s lots of choice. So book now; this may be slow season, but there’s nothing like Restaurant Week to fill the house.
