Our Guide to New York City Restaurant Week, Winter 2014
Restaurant Week (February 17 to March 7) is a great time to be adventurous and try new cuisines. What are the best restaurants and the best dishes for this years’ Restaurant Week? With so little time and so many options, here are some of our picks for New York City Restaurant Week, winter 2014.
Bread & Tulips – 365 Park Ave S
One Italian restaurant that we have kept an eye out for this year is Bread & Tulips. We are especially eying their roasted beet & goat cheese ravioli for a starter, and either their sea scallops and black Angus sirloin steak for an entree and their vanilla bean panna cotta to complete their Restaurant Week menu. Yum!
The Russian Tea Room – 150 W 57th St
With the Sochi Olympics, Russian culture has been on the forefront as of late. If you are like us and are thinking about sampling some traditional Russian dishes, you have to start with the Russian Tea Room. They are known for their outstanding food and trying their traditional red borscht is an absolute must. Their vareniki (grilled vegetable ravioli) and chocolate pyramid will surely complete a memorable meal.
The General – 199 Bowery
Hung Huynh’s The General is an intriguing, hip restaurant on the Bowery. Restaurant Week is a great time to check out the restaurant and it is a great time to sample their Asian inspired menu with choices like Chinese chicken tacos, spicy Schezuan chicken and green tea donuts.
The Marrow – 99 Bank St
The Marrow has a very interesting menu this year. Their menu features steamed bouchot mussels, house made pappadelle (large, flat pasta) with braised forest mushrooms and spiced streusel kuchen and they all sound scrumptious. Fans of Harold Dieterle, the first winner of the show Top Chef and chef of The Marrow can also check out his other locations such as Kin Shop (469 Avenue of the Americas) & Perilla (9 Jones St).
Morton’s The Steakhouse – 551 Fifth Avenue
Steakhouses are always popular Restaurant Week options and our pick is Morton’s The Steakhouse. Their lunch menu is a great bargain and we are salivating at the thought of their juicy, tender 6 oz. filet or their prime pork chops.
Hatsuhana Sushi Restaurant – 17 E 48th St
Hatsuhana Sushi Restaurant is one of our all-time favorite sushi restaurants in the city. Their food is truly a work of art. We can’t wait to see what is on their Restaurant Week menu!
