Tips for NYC Restaurant Week
Here’s the inside scoop on the best ways to enjoy the program’s gourmet goodness:

1. Score a top table
Having trouble getting a table at one of the City’s popular restaurants? Try booking for lunch: many sought-after eateries participate in the program only for the midday meal. Alternatively, make a reservation for Sunday night, when there’s usually more availability—and when many restaurants still serve their NYC Restaurant Week menus. (Check in advance.)

2. Check your calendar
Come back for seconds (and thirds and fourths and…you get the idea). Many diners reserve tables only during the first five days of the program, but NYC Restaurant Week actually runs for four weeks—leaving many opportunities to recover from your food coma and book again.

3. Know before you go
See what’s on offer in advance at nycgo.com/restaurantweek—the only website to feature a comprehensive list of NYC Restaurant Week menus. That way you can find out if your favorite dishes are available—or whet your appetite for something new.

4. Explore new cuisines
Speaking of trying something new, every NYC Restaurant Week is a chance to expand your palate with a novel cuisine. The participating restaurants serve up excellent dishes from around the globe—a delicious way to experience the City’s famous diversity.

5. Drink it all in
Thirsty? Some restaurants pair beverages—wine, specialty cocktails and the like—with their meals, typically for around $15–$25 extra. It’s one more way to make an evening memorable (or afternoon, sure; who are we to judge?).

6. Let Instagram be your guide
Check #nycrestaurantweek on Instagram to see what dishes and restaurants are trending. Pro tip: Search the geotags of participating restaurants to see what looks delicious before you book. When you dine, post your own photos and tag them with #nycrestaurantweek!

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 26 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.

"I wanted to give back." She combined her passions in Kind Karma. Laurinda serves as designer for the jewellery line, with pieces that are classic and minimalist, and that can be worn with anything.

Travel By The Glass: Seven Cocktails From Around The World W e may not be able to travel, listen to live music or eat in restaurants, but we can always drink. Here's a look at some famous cocktails, and the stories surrounding their origins from all over the world. The Bloody Caesar (Calgary, Alberta Canada) The story goes that back in 1969, the Calgary Inn asked bartender Walter Chell to create a new cocktail to celebrate the opening of a new restaurant inside the hotel. Taking his inspiration from the restaurant's Italian cuisine, it took him fully three months to ocme up with the Caesar - as inspired by spaghetti alla vongole, which is essentially pasta with clam sauce.  Chell crushed clams for their juices, mixing it with tomato juice and spices. The classic version includes clam nectar - nowadays more often substituted by Clamato juice - Worcestershire sauce and celery salt. In an interview, Chell said he also added a dash of oregano.
