Event: -
After traversing New York City streets to take in the attractions and activities, urban explorers will eventually need to look for places to dine. Known as a mecca for international dining venues in various price points, the NYC area also boasts top-notch fare from chefs who've honed their culinary skills in the country and from places near and far.

Head to Nobu at 105 Hudson Street (corner of Franklin Street).

While hopping from one world-renowned restaurant to another may become too pricey a hobby or activity for most anyone, those making a trip to New York City from Monday, January 16 to Friday, February 10, 2012 are in for a special treat.

How It Works

For a span of 20 days and nights (Monday to Friday only), dining venues in the Big Apple, and nearby areas—namely Queens and Brooklyn, are participating in the 20th NYC Restaurant Week.

Imagine enjoying three courses of a sumptuous prix fixe lunch for $24.07 or dinner for $35. Go to the NYC & Company website, select the neighborhood you'd like to visit, pick a cuisine and peruse your restaurant choices. Browse through the available menu links, and check the mouth-watering options for appetizers, entrees and dessert. When you're ready, make your reservations online and you're all set.


Are you in the mood for Japanese cuisine? Perhaps a trip to Tribeca's Nobu New York for lunch, or dinner at Nobu Next Door (a more casual venue, literally next door to Nobu New York) are in order.

At 62 Thomas Street, a few blocks away from Nobu, another Japanese venue awaits—Megu, which is offering the special event price for dinner.

Sushi or rolls, anyone?

And, of course, there's Morimoto at 88 Tenth Avenue in the Meatpacking District, which is co-owned by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto.

David Burke Kitchen

Or, how does modern American food sound? Then, David Burke Kitchen on 23 Grand Street and 6th Avenue is a viable option for lunch or dinner. Warm up with lobster soup, and savor the salmon steak or dry aged prime ribeye—among your many choices for both lunch and dinner.

Register your American Express card via the NYC & Company site. Use it to pay when you dine out three times during the event and you'll receive a $20 credit.

Regardless of which restaurant you visit to sate your palate—with such great prices, you're in for a memorable gastronomic journey.
