The History of NYC Restaurant Week
The history of NYC Restaurant Week goes back to its creation date in 1992. Restaurant Week was created by Tim Zagat and Joe Baum. Since then, it has been occurring twice per year in both NYC and in cities throughout the country.
Since its inception, Restaurant Week has grown wildly in popularity and participation, with virtually every New York City publication covering the food fest each year.
How NYC Restaurant Week Works
Participating restaurants offer deals on prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus for much less than they normally charge. This is done in order to fill tables and to introduce unfamiliar New Yorkers with their cuisines. Even though the restaurants are charging much less than they usually do, their volume of clientele shoots through the roofs, making it a worthwhile investment.
Each year, there is a winter and summer edition, both of which last longer than a week, despite the name of the historic event. The winter edition usually goes from late January to early February, and the summer event goes from late June to early July.
One thing that makes Restaurant Week so popular is the quality of the restaurants which participate. Some of the most popular (and most expensive) NYC restaurants have signed up for many years. And a lot of these restaurants have prices which are out of reach for most New Yorkers.
