NYC’s ‘Restaurant Week’ Returns July 19th With An All-New Signature Dining Experience

Book your table starting July 12th!

Let’s face it, New Yorkers love to eat. No matter the weather, you’ll catch diners bundled up or sweating buckets on the side of the road sitting down for a meal, unfazed! We simply have too much good food to try.

It’s an exciting time for foodies in New York City as Restaurant Week has returned for its summer 2021 season starting July 19th, but this time with a new trio of pricing options!

More than 500 restaurants across the five boroughs are participating this summer, but our favorite part about Restaurant Week, is most definitely the price tag. Restaurants will be offering all new pricing options varying from the traditional $21, to $39 & $125. These varying prices will allow more NYC restaurants to participate, thus creating more options for diners.


Another new feature to this summer’s Restaurant Week is the Signature Dining Experience. For $125, restaurants will be whipping up a minimum three-course meal, with potential exclusive incentives like meeting the chef, special menu items, and more exciting enhancements.

After following such a successful ‘Restaurant Week To-Go’ last winter, many restaurants will still be offering the option for takeout and delivery.

Those with a preregistered Mastercard will even receive an extra $10 credit (up to $50 total) when dining in person for each transaction of $39 or more.

To best take advantage of this upcoming event, their website shares a few tips:

  1. Reserve a spot at lunchtime to score a top table
  2. Plan ahead and book your table in advance
  3. Check out the menu before you go
  4. Explore the city’s diversity with new cuisines
  5. Add a beverage to your meal
  6. Keep watch on Instagram with #NYCRestaurantWeek to find what’s trending

Reservations can be made starting July 12th through their official website here using OpenTable.

Navigate restaurant collections at nycgo.com/restaurantweek like “James Beard Honorees,” “NYC Classics,” “Date Night,” “As Seen on TV,” “Under the Sea,” “The Slice is Right,” “Make it a Stella” (the event’s official beverage sponsor) and “Editor’s Pick.”
