And So, Another Restaurant Week Is Upon Us

As of today, it’s officially NYC Restaurant Week for the next two weeks (possibly longer, if it gets extended like it usually does). It means that once again it’s possible to get three courses for $24.07 at lunch, and a similar spread at dinner for $35. RW vets know that these deals can result in meals that are hit or miss, but if you haven’t made any reservations yet, a quick check reveals that some of the most dependable places still have availability. You could lunch at spots like Aldea, Lupa, Gotham Bar & Grill, and Barbuto (whose outdoor patio is just right for soaking in midday rays); use the chance to check out a newish pick like Ai Fiori (lunch only), the reincarnation of Alfama, or Hemant Mathur’s regional-Indian at Tulsi; or make your way to the Upper West Side to hit Telepan. Better hurry, though — some of the choicest time slots are already taken. [NYC GO]
