Have You Made Your Reservations Yet?? NYC Restaurant Week Starts Monday Including 7 Yummy Spots In Forest Hills!
FOREST HILLS, QUEENS — New York Restaurant Week is making a “super” return this month, the mayor announced on Monday, and a handful of eateries in Forest Hills have already signed up for the deal-filled event.
After a takeout-only run earlier this year, this summer’s five-week-long Restaurant Week will return in-person on July 19, and reservations are already open at 505 citywide eateries — including 7 spots in Forest Hills.
Although some Forest Hills eateries are represented in this year’s event, the vast majority of participating restaurants — 413 of the 505 — are found in Manhattan, with just 31 Queens spots on the list so far, though others might join ahead of the July 15 registration deadline.
Here are the Forest Hills restaurants participating so far:
- Bareburger – Multiple Locations
- Guantanamera Restaurant
- London Lennie’s
- MoCA Asian Bistro
- The Local Mrkt
- Tuscan Hills
- Queens Bully
For participating restaurants, this year’s deals include $21 lunches, $39 dinners, and a new $125 “Signature Dining Experience,” which includes three or more courses.
There will be even more deals for MasterCard holders, who will receive $10 of credit on each purchase of $39 or more, and who will be entered for the chance to win 200,000 airline miles with each NYC Restaurant Week meal.
“This is going to be amazing,” de Blasio said on Monday, describing this year’s event as “a wonderful, super restaurant week.”
The participating eateries include more than 40 types of cuisines in 75 neighborhoods, according to organizers NYC & Company.
The return of restaurant week comes as New York City continues its campaign to restart tourism in the city, which flagged during the coronavirus pandemic. Both the mayor and organizers said the extended restaurant week will add to the effort.
“Accompanied with vibrant open streets and rich cultural activity returning across the five boroughs, the options this summer are endless and the time to visit is now,” NYC & Company President Fred Dixon said.
