NYC Restaurant Week 2011 runs from July 11-24. This means that the restaurants on the list have a lunch special for $24.07 and dinner for $35. Sometimes the Restaurant Week menu isn’t very exciting, and you might want to order off of the menu, which is what I’m sure most restaurants want you to do. But if you are on a budget, who isn’t these days?, this is a great way to go to a restaurant you’ve always wanted to try. I’ve been to many on the list, but some new ones I have reservations for include Dovetail, Maialino, Nobu, Petrossian and Telepan. The site makes it easy to view Restaurant Week menus and also to make reservations through OpenTable.com.
