Savor the Best of NYC’s Restaurant Week
Savvy foodies look forward to NYC Restaurant Week, a biannual event during which more than 300 of the city’s best eateries offer three-course dining deals ($25 for lunch or brunch and $38 for dinner). It’s an excellent opportunity to sample trendy new spots, as well as to return to old favorites. As part of The James New York’s commitment to supporting our neighbors—and in honor of this year’s summer Restaurant Week, which runs July 20 through August 15—we’re sharing a guide to several of our favorite local eateries.
