City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

The event of Restaurant Week really couldn’t come at a better time. Everyone is staying away from the pricey restaurants they used to frequent and asking for a bit more bang for their buck. If your wallet is preventing you from having the pleasure of tasting the fresh sushi at Nobu or the innovative Greek cuisine from Anthos, now’s your chance.

Winter Restaurant Week (it’s actually two weeks) will last from January 18-23 and January 25-30, where you can enjoy a $24.07 three-course lunch or a $35 three-course dinner at some of the city’s favorites. Try fish and chips for lunch at Blue Water Grill, braised short ribs for dinner at Primehouse and a chocolate truffle cheesecake for dessert at Tribeca Grill.

If you’ve never tried Brooklyn’s iconic River Café, take a trip over the Brooklyn Bridge for a lunch that will taste like it should cost four times as much as you’re paying for it. Start with Lamb Meatballs “Au Poivre”, enjoy a main course of Wild Boar and Ravioli and finish with a dessert sampling.

If you’re craving some red meat head to Kobe Club where for $20 you can upgrade your Wagu beef filet to Prime and order some additional sides for $7 a pop, without any shame.

To find out which restaurants are participating and to make reservations, log on to nycgo.com. You can view restaurants alphabetically, find out whether they’re offering lunch, dinner or both and also take a peek at the menu they’ll be serving up.
