It depresses me that this only comes twice a year. Restaurant Week is like a holiday – a holiday where I can mingle with those of my own kind rather than wrestle with tourists and their 3-foot Nikon cameras in the middle of the street. Blah. Humbug. Anyway…I love Restaurant Week for obvious reasons ($35 three-course dinner, $24 three-course lunch), and each year I try to go someplace I haven't been before – it's a great way to try something you generally can't afford either. So from Jan 25 – Feb 7 (Saturdays excluded) you can visit some of those places you've always wanted to try and get a great deal in the process. And remember: cheap food = more money to spend on drinks. Someone was using their thinking cap.
Check out the site to see a full listing of participating restaurants (some are even doing weekend hours! Hooray!), and click here for the restaurants that have their RW menus online. See below for my picks:
A Voce Columbus
The Red Cat
You can make most reservations online, but for certain places (like the Breslin Bar) you will need to call directly. Happy RW!
Centro Vinoteca has a great restaurant week menu!
Here is where I am going:
Fig & Olive
Etcetera Etcetera (near a broadway theater, so that is why I picked it)
