New York City Restaurant Week Winter 2016 Recommendations

It is that time again! NYC Restaurant Week starts January 18 and lasts until February 5. It is a great time to be foodie in the city and as always, there are so many choices. Here are our New York City Restaurant Week Winter 2016 recommendations!

Socarrat Paella Bar – 284 Mulberry St
We love paella and you can get your choice of paella along with an appetizer and dessert for only $25 for lunch and $38 for dinner. You can’t beat that!

Texas de Brazil – 1011 3rd Ave
Texas de Brazil is an all you can eat Brazilian steakhouse where different cuts of meat like filet mignon and lamb chops are all carved tableside. It is a great value and it is truly a lot of fun.

Inakaya New York – 231 W 40th St
Inakaya New York in the New York Times building offers slow-grilled cooking (Japanese robata) & sushi in a bright and fun atmosphere. For NYC Restaurant Week, we can’t wait to try their sashimi and nigiri sushi, Kobe beef skewers, grilled Spanish mackerel and Japanese waffle ice cream.

Benchmark Restaurant – 339A 2nd St, Brooklyn
Another one of our staples for NYC Restaurant Week is Benchmark in Brooklyn. Dishes like their Maine lobster bisque, filet mignon with potato gratin and cookie dough eggroll (an absolute must) makes us say “wow” every time.

Café Boulud – 20 E 76th St
If you are craving French, then take a look at Daniel Boulud’s prestigious Café Boulud. This year they have cauliflower veloute, fontine ravioli and chocolate semi-freddo on the menu which is making our mouth’s water.

David Burke Kitchen – 23 Grand St
Finally time and time again, David Burke Kitchen has consistently one of the more exciting NYC Restaurant Week menus. The BBQ chicken dumplings, brussel sprouts & mushroom rigatoni and seared scallops with crispy potato cake all sound amazing. Plus the cheesecake lollipops for two is quite the sight to behold (and it is absolutely delicious).
