New York City's Restaurant Week is back and this year, it's being extended so New Yorkers can take advantage of the program for even longer.
This year, the dining program will go on for five weeks allowing foodies to really take advantage of the special pricing to try out different the nearly 500 restaurants participating.
Eateries can take part in restaurant week at no cost. Organizers, including Mastercard, hope that the program brings much needed business to restaurants that have been suffering throughout the pandemic.
Prices are a little more affordable this year as well. Lunches or dinners are either $21 or $39 depending on the restaurant and that includes one entrée and at least one side.
If you really want to get a more in-depth experience at a restaurant, some of them are offering a new signature dining experience at $125, which includes at least three courses.
This year, organizers really hope to see New Yorkers get out and support their local restaurants. New York City's Restaurant Week kicks off today and lasts until August 22.
