In lieu of Restaurant Week, the biannual promotion that chefs, restaurateurs and diners either love or hate — this time around it kicks off Sunday, January 16 and runs through Friday, January 28 — Stephen Starr’s Pizzeria Stella is hosting Pizza Week. Running through the entirety first five days of Restaurant Week’s two weeks, the Stella deal offers each diner a choice of drink (draught beer, house red or white wine or non-alcoholic beverage), choice of antipasti or salad, any pizza and gelato for $25.

Midtown Village’s Zavino is offering a similar alt-restaurant week special. Its dinner for two deal includes a choice of either a bottle of Cielo Pinot Grigio or Punto Final Malbec, a choice of roasted butternut squash soup or bruschetta with balsamic drizzle, either a Margherita pizza, Diavalo pizza or spinach pizza and SNAP panna cotta for $50.
