NYC Restaurant Week

Posted by cher on July 21st, 2009

It’s that time of the year again! Restaurant Week has actually been going on since last week – love that they extend it for three weeks. For those of you not familiar with the event, over 200 restaurants around the city offer three-course prix-fixe meals: $24.07 for lunch, $35.00 for dinner. It’s an amazing deal; many are upscale, well-known (meaning expensive) establishments. It’s a great opportunity for people (like yours truly) to dine somewhere they normally can’t afford. You can find more information on the history of NYC Restaurant Week here.

My girlfriends and I are going to Aspen (the restaurant, not the city) tomorrow night for dinner. The concept and decor is actually based on a cozy Aspen ski lodge, complete with a fireplace and mounted antlers. I’ll be back with a review and pictures.

You can find a complete listing of the restaurants participating here; you can also view some of the menus. Go make reservations (until July 31st) and enjoy some yummy food!
