Your Ultimate Guide to NYC Restaurant Week - The Summer Edition 2023


CHASING  food adventures

Twice a year, NYC becomes a food lover's paradise during its iconic Restaurant Week. This NYCRW Summer 2023 edition promises a gastronomic experience like no other with hundreds of NYC's top-tier restaurants offering bespoke prix-fixe meals at over 450+ restaurants across the city.

Restaurant Week in NYC stands as one of the prime culinary events in the city's five boroughs. As the event draws nearer, local gourmands, savvy tourists, and food enthusiasts clear their dining calendars to make way for a month-long gastronomic adventure. This NYC food festival encompasses tried-and-true restaurants, fresh faces in the food scene, and the best special occasion spots, all offering fantastic deals that only come once in a blue moon. Participating venues span across the city, delivering an unparalleled culinary experience at prices that won't break the bank.


Restaurant Week in the Big Apple is a semi-annual affair, taking place in the heart of summer and the depths of winter. Over its course, participating restaurants carefully craft their offerings, presenting diners with prix fixe options for brunch, lunch, and dinner - sometimes serving all three. The event runs throughout the week.

NYCRW Summer Edition 2023 - How much does it cost?

NYCRW is bringing back the same pricing tiers from last winter's edition. We will have a few options to choose from - $30, $45, and $60 for two- and three-course specials offering more gastronomic delights to savor.

For the NYCRW Summer Edition 2023, the city is leaving each venue the option to choose which deal(s) to offer and on what days. Usually, most restaurants will offer Lunch and/or Dinner deals Monday through Friday, and selected restaurants may opt to offer Brunch and Dinner deals on the weekends as well. We highly recommend looking each restaurant up to see their specific offerings.

You may also see the NYCRW Summer Edition 2023 on restaurant apps such as Open Table and Resy, where you can conveniently make and manage your reservations.

And remember to register your MasterCard!

The "Get $10 Back on Your Meal with Mastercard® Deal" is back for the Summer 2023 Edition. You must register your MC card in advance (see link here) to get a $10 statement credit when you spend $45 or more during NYC Restaurant Week.

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!
