July 22 to August 16,
Mondays through Fridays, with Saturdays excluded and Sundays optional.
Guests can enjoy three-course prix-fixe lunches for $25 and three-course
prix-fixe dinners for $38 (excluding beverages, gratuities and taxes).

“NYC
Restaurant Week offers visitors and New Yorkers the perfect opportunity
to try a new cuisine and sample the various offerings of New York City’s
finest dining establishments at an affordable
price,” said NYC & Company CEO George Fertitta. “Innovative
programs like NYC Restaurant Week showcase the vibrancy and diversity of
New York City and help spotlight and support one of the City’s most
important industries.” 

“Dining is
one of New York City’s most meaningful and compelling experiences,”
says Tracy Nieporent, Chairman of NYC & Company’s Restaurant
Committee. “NYC Restaurant Week brings together a community
of restaurants inspired to offer our guests the quality, variety and
hospitality that makes New York City the dining capital of the world.”


NYC Restaurant Week, the first and largest dining program of its kind,
was created in 1992 for the Democratic National Convention in New York
City.
The popular program supports
the City’s thriving restaurant industry, which employs more than
200,000 people and grosses annual sales exceeding $12 billion. New
York City offers more dining options than most states do, boasting
24,000 restaurants and food service establishments.

Consumers’
enthusiasm for the program remains strong. According to OpenTable,
approximately 210,000 diners were seated though online reservations
during the Winter 2013 promotion, generating over
$6 million to participating restaurants. In addition, reservations via
mobile device increased by 65% over the Winter 2012 promotion.

A full list of the summer participants will be available when reservations open on July 8 at
