I always look forward to NYC Restaurant Week. The $25 lunch and $38 dinner specials are a great excuse to try a new place or visit a restaurant that’s normally a little out of my price range.
Friday night, a few friends and I went to the Atlantic Grill. All of us ordered the 3-course Restaurant Week menu.
I started with the green gazpacho with crab meat salad. For my entree, I ordered the salmon, which came with a lovely ratatouille. Of the three dessert options, I went for the sorbet trio because it sounded the most refreshing (and also because the chocolate torte had hazelnuts and was therefore not an option). The flavors were all spot-on for me, and the portion sizes were great—not too big, not too small. I only ended up finishing about half the dessert, actually, and felt perfectly satisfied.
With a drink, tax, and tip, it still came out to almost $60, but it was a really nice treat!
Do you take advantage of Restaurant Week or other dining specials in your city? Any must-go places in NYC?
