NYC Restaurant Week 2018: Boulud Sud, Charlie Palmer at the Knick and more Manhattan menus

Start making your reservations.

The nearly three-week-long promotion featuring two-course lunches ($26) and three-course dinners ($42) at some of the city's best restaurants is back for its summer edition. This time around, the celebration features prix-fixe meals at more than 380 eateries, from Artie's Steak & Seafood on City Island in the Bronx to the Greenhouse Cafe in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. The dining deals last through Aug. 17.

As usual, restaurants aren't offering their prix-fixe menus on Saturdays, and some choose not to participate on Sundays, either. You can find links to menus and the restaurants involved here, but check out our picks for some of the most enticing deals below.
