Where to Eat During NYC Restaurant Week, Summer 2016
New York City Restaurant Week is back from July 25 to August 19. This year’s Restaurant Week has an excellent and diverse selection of restaurants to choose from. We went through the list of participating restaurants and here are our picks for where to eat during NYC Restaurant Week, summer 2016!
Becco – 355 W 46th St
First off, Becco is one of the many new participants this year that we are very excited about. It is a classic Italian restaurant just a few blocks from most Broadway theaters and Times Square. We are looking at the antipasto misto, Cubanelle stuffed peppers and of course their panna cotta for lunch.
The Cecil – 210 W 118th St
The Cecil in Harlem has been the talk of the town and NYC Restaurant Week is a great opportunity to check out what all the buzz is about. Their salmon crudo, fried chicken fried rice and tofu wok bowl all seem like sure bets.
Tavern on the Green – 1 Tavern on the Green
Tavern on the Green has undergone a lot of changes over the last few years but it is still an important landmark in New York City. Their Restaurant Week menu is only available for lunch, Monday through Friday and the chilled vichyssoise soup, pan roasted silver hake and bittersweet chocolate mousse have peaked our interests.
Vandal – 199 Bowery
Vandal has been described as eclectic so this is definitely a restaurant to look out for if you are an adventurous eater or just looking for something a little different. Their Thai papaya summer roll, blackened shrimp arepas, street fair chicken sandwich and blueberry macaron ice cream sandwich off their NYC Restaurant Week menu all sound amazing.
Le Cirque – 151 E 58th St
When it comes to the best of high end dining Le Cirque is usually at the top of the list. We can’t wait to try their corn soup and the branzino filet with a celery root puree and puttanesca sauce. Their crème brulee of course would be the perfect way to end the meal.
Delmonico’s – 56 Beaver St
Delmonico’s has been in business since 1837 and it is one of the oldest restaurants in NYC. On their Restaurant Week menu, there are delicious classic steakhouse staples like a baby iceberg wedge salad, filet mignon and even a baked Alaska.
Maloney & Porcelli – 37 E 50th St
We love steakhouses and another good one is Maloney & Porcelli. They have a dry-aged meatball with a mozzarella fondue and vanilla panna cotta with an orange sherbet on the menu but what we are really excited about is their prime rib roast with potato gratin. Just thinking about it is making our mouth water.
