NYC Restaurant Week To Go launched on Monday, January 25, and was originally scheduled to last though Sunday, January 31. However, as a record number of participating restaurants are having great early success, it’s now been extended to run through February 28. This year’s participating restaurants are offering lunch and dinner for takeout and delivery for a discounted price of $20.21.
This year, there are 541 participating restaurants, of which 41 are on the Upper West Side – almost double the number of neighborhood participants from a year ago.
NYC as a whole has also set a Restaurant Week record. According to the NY Post, the previous record was set during the summer of 2017 when 391 restaurants signed on.
NYC & Company, the tourism agency behind the event, has waived its fees this year to encourage more eateries to participate. These fees are typically $2,800 for Manhattan restaurants and $1,500 for those located in the outer boroughs.

NYC Restaurant Week has taken place twice per year since it was founded in 1992, though the summer 2020 event was cancelled due to the pandemic.
We’re glad it’s coming back, albeit in a different form. Let’s hope it gives people some cheer and puts some extra money in the pockets of restaurant owners who’ve struggled for so many months now.
