Restaurant Week—which is much longer than a week—happens twice yearly, and 2024’s winter edition runs from January 16 to February 4. During this time, over 600 restaurants will be participating. As the number suggests, it really is a grab bag. You can get lunch at Union Square Cafe, or you can enjoy a fine meal next to one of Adam Levine’s guitars at Hard Rock Cafe. To help you sort through the list, we’ve selected our top picks.

This year, restaurants are offering $30, $45, and $60 multi-course meals, although not every place has all of these options, so be sure to check beforehand to see how much you’ll be spending. Additionally, not every restaurant is participating every week, and Saturdays are excluded (while Sundays are optional). Get more info and book your table here.

Even during Restaurant Week, Frenchette insists on being pricier than most. But you can actually squeeze a little value out of your $60 lunch at what’s arguably the top French restaurant in NYC.

Take a long lunch. Your boss doesn’t care. They barely even know what you do for work.

The Deal: $60 Dinner, $60 Sunday Dinner

As one of seemingly several thousand Hand Hospitality restaurants, LittleMad is easy to overlook. But the food—a mix of Korean, French, and American—is fun, inventive, and worth experiencing at least once. Dinner here usually costs $95, so head over now if you want a lower check.

The Deal: $45 Lunch, $60 Dinner

A $60 meal isn't anything unusual at Fish Cheeks. It's around what you'll spend on any given night at this Noho Thai spot. But with this deal, you'll get try more than you normally would.

The Deal: $60 Lunch, $60 Sunday Dinner, $60 Sunday Lunch/Brunch

Find a faux-fur coat and a hat that makes a statement, then get over to Delmonico's and mingle with some 21st-century robber barons. The original opened in the early 18th century, and, though there have been many ownership changes over the years, the current iteration is still a fun place to spend too much money on steak, lobster, and baked alaska.

If you’re still eating your way through our list of the Best New Restaurants of 2023, make Hav & Mar your next visit. Marcus Samuelsson’s globally-inspired Chelsea restaurant is his best work to date, and the mermaid-accented space always has a good energy to it. 

The Deal: $30 Lunch

Fussy, French, and Austrian, Koloman serves food that looks like it should be on display in a museum, and tastes like an upscale weekend in Vienna. Stop into this Nomad restaurant for a $30 lunch that consists of crisp schnitzel and apple strudel served with a side of frozen buttermilk.

The Deal: $45 Lunch

You know what sounds nice? A plate of chicken and fries at this cavernous French restaurant in the bottom of Williamsburg’s Wythe Hotel. The thin, crispy fries come in a big pile on the side of the roasted chicken, soaking up the jus in the bottom of the dish. Finish your lunch with profiteroles.

The Deal: $60 Lunch

The prix-fixe at Manhatta normally starts at $115, and people gladly pay that much because  it comes with a panoramic view from the 60th floor of a FiDi skyscraper. With this deal, which comes with three courses, you can almost cut that bill in half. Along with your view, you’ll get some innovative New American food.

The Deal: $60 Lunch, $60 Sunday Lunch/Brunch

Gramercy Tavern feels like a lodge in Aspen where you’d eat with someone who’s trying to figure out how much money they should leave you in their will.

This Park Slope restaurant serves a dosa, sea bream ssam, and jerk chicken, in addition to a bunch of other dishes that aren’t often witnessed on the same menu. And you know what? It works. Bring someone who thinks they’ve already been to every interesting restaurant in Brooklyn.

Freemans will always be referred to as “that one restaurant hidden down an alley on the Lower East Side.” The seclusion is a big part of its appeal, although the classic American food and hunting lodge-like ambiance are very pleasant as well.

Eat more food in Long Island City. The neighborhood’s dining scene has been ramping up over the past few years, so it’s time you’ve checked in. For Sichuan food, like meaty mapo tofu with thick-cut scallions, go to Hupo. Unlike most on this list, their dinner deal comes with two cocktails.

The Deal: $45 Lunch, $60 Dinner, $60 Sunday Dinner

Astoria is typically where you'll find the best Greek food, but Eléa has you covered on the Upper West Side.
