About NYC Restaurant Week® and FAQ
Created in 1992, NYC Restaurant Week is the highly anticipated—and often imitated—celebration of dining throughout New York City. With prix-fixe meals at hundreds of the City’s finest restaurants, the program invites diners to sample the incredible array of eateries that make up NYC’s culinary culture.
In early 2021, NYC Restaurant Week To Go put a spin on the tradition to give the dining industry some much-needed support. Our first-ever takeout and delivery program became our largest dining initiative to date, with more than 800 participants from all five boroughs. If its success taught us anything, it’s that New Yorkers love their restaurants—and NYC Restaurant Week is here to stay.

A Taste of History
NYC Restaurant Week is the City’s original culinary celebration—and the world’s first-ever Restaurant Week. The program debuted in 1992, when it was developed as a one-time culinary event to welcome the Democratic National Convention (DNC) to the City. Though it was created to appeal to delegates and other DNC attendees, the program—with 95 participating restaurants—also found a strong following among residents excited to dine at some of the City's top restaurants.
Over the past 29 years, NYC Restaurant Week has grown tremendously, yet has remained committed to giving visitors and residents the opportunity to experience the quality, variety and hospitality that embody the NYC dining experience.
