Restaurant Week may be Manhattan-centric but that doesn’t mean that eateries in the outer boroughs are entirely skipping the nearly three-week long promotion.
The foodie celebration, which offers prix-fixe two-course lunches ($26) and three-course dinners ($42), is embraced by about 370 restaurants around the city, although only about 11 can be found in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx.
So if you want to avoid the city rush, head to one of the following eateries from Jan. 21 until Feb. 8. You can find links to menus and the restaurants involved here.
