Take A Trip Around The World With Caviar Week: World Tour

Sure there are plenty of places to get a great meal in New York City, but what about a spot that makes you feel like you’ve been transported to another country entirely? Well, we wouldn’t ask the question if we didn’t already have the answer, so check this out: Caviar has created a culinary tour of the best international restaurants in Manhattan.
During the inaugural Caviar Week: World Tour, Caviar is teaming up with select restaurants in Manhattan to deliver a global dining experience complete with exclusive prix-fixe menus and curated dinner playlists, no passport required. Caviar Week: World Tour runs from August 16th to 22nd.
From Greek to Chinese, Italian to Thai, and many more, order dinner from any of these spots and feel (eat) like you’re on vacation — minus the long airport lines, unruly passengers, and jet lag.
Have sushi (almost) in Japan at Domodomo. For much less than a plane ticket, hop to Japan at this Manhattan spot. The menu starts off with edamame and salad, followed by a 20-piece assortment of premium sushi, rice, nori, and miso cod. Finish with a slice of Japanese cheesecake, all for $85.
August in New York City doesn’t require much imagination to conjure up the tropics. So if you want to pretend you’re near the beach in Thailand, you just need to order from Wayla. They’ve got a three-course meal of curry puffs, crab-fried rice, and mango mousse sticky rice, plus homemade Thai iced tea.
Head South of the border (figuratively speaking) for dinner with Fonda’s meal for two. Start with chips and guacamole and a choice of chicken flautas or salad for appetizer, then pick two entrees - there’s a choice of enchiladas, chiles rellenos, pollo norteno, carnitas, and salmon - before somehow deciding between tres leches or a brownie for dessert.
The Lower East Side arm of Kings County Imperial offers a ton of vegan and vegetarian options for their three-course prix fixe, so you can mix and match with options like pork dumplings, vegan sesame noodles, and General Tso’s in chicken or tofu form.
Go for a classic French bistro spread from this special occasion spot on the Lower East Side. Their three-course meal includes a chèvre salad, hanger steak with peppercorn sauce and pomme frites, and a toasted meringue lemon tarte.
Given that ‘rahi’ means traveler in Hindi, this Greenwich Village spot is a no-brainer for the India stop of our World Tour. They offer prix fixe menus for one or two people clocking in at $38 or $62 respectively, with vegetarian options available. Meals include artichoke chaat (with paneer tikka too for the two person option), butter chicken or pumpkin coconut curry, garlic naan, and a pistachio tart for dessert.
Have the Roman holiday of your stomach’s dreams. If you’re a fan of nearly razor-thin, crackly crust pizza, this is your spot. The prix fixe menu comes with said pizza, meatballs, salad, and a hazelnut chocolate chip cookie.
Greek spot Kyma has a three-course meal with dolmades, a branzino for entree, and baklava for dessert. Pretend you’re island hoping by sitting in a different part of your apartment for each course.
