This Is Where Celebrity Chefs Say You Should Eat During NYC Restaurant Week
There’s no better time to get out of your restaurant rut or take-out habit than NYC Restaurant Week — but choosing where to dine isn’t easy. Nearly 400 restaurants in all five boroughs serve up everything from Laotian cuisine to pizza. And with only so much time — the event runs from July 22 to August 16 — expert help is a must.
“Vinatería is an amazing example of what the power of women can do, and it’s right here in Harlem. Chef Mimi and proprietor Yvette are a powerhouse team, creating consistently great Italian and Spanish food and great vibes. I can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store for NYC Restaurant Week — I know it's going to be delicious.”
Serena Bass, chef at Lido
“Babu Ji is the most interesting and delicious Indian restaurant in NYC. I am always inspired and come away planning to add more color to my dishes. Indochine, because who would ever turn down a chance to go there—wonderful food and atmosphere and usually several friends dining in the shadows.”
JJ Johnson, chef at Henry at the Life Hotel
“Tribeca Grill offers an amazing dining experience, and it’s a New York classic! It’s always a good option for Restaurant Week.”
Chung Chow, chef and co-owner at Noreetuh
“Restaurant Soogil is a hidden gem on East 4th Street, just a couple blocks from Noreetuh. Every time I go I make sure to order the glass noodles, mackerel and foie gras. If you’re up for getting a little bit of everything, go for the tasting menu.”
