Eat your heart out, New York City. No, seriously. Eat your heart out; it's NYC Restaurant Week

On July 22, NYC Restaurant Week returned for its 27th year, giving New Yorkers an excuse to eat out for 23 consecutive days. With nearly 400 restaurants participating throughout the five boroughs, NYC Restaurant Week is offering lunches for $26, three-cours prix-fixe dinners with dessert for $42 and a variety of curated collections, ideal for groups.

"The restaurants in this year’s 'Crowd Pleasers' collection are larger venues, known for accommodating groups, and some even offer space for private dining. At these eateries, the prix-fixe, dedicated menus have been identified as approachable, and the chefs offer classics to please any palate," says Jerry Cito, executive vice president convention development, NYC & Company. "After NYC Restaurant Week is over, planners and delegates alike will have been introduced to new favorites and are more likely to seek out the establishment on a future visit. Further, planners can keep in mind that NYC Restaurant Week always falls in late July/early August and then again in winter (late January to early February), so those operating within a budget can plan accordingly."

NYC Restaurant Week emphasizes New York's diverse melting pot, as the flavors of the world are served up together with diverse neighborhoods and cultures, to provide delegates with a taste of New York City. Oftentimes, delegates experience neighborhoods with a concentration of hotels and don’t venture beyond tried and true dining offerings.

"Planners whose meetings, conventions and events are scheduled to be in town in August and September can look forward to sister programs NYC Broadway Week and NYC Off-Broadway Week. Both are organized by NYC & Company and offer 2-for-1 tickets, meaning delegates can bring their significant other along and treat them to a night on the town, or enjoy bonding with a colleague while on the road," Cito adds.

Hotel Pennsylvania is one step closer to the completion of its top-to-bottom transformation. The historic New York marvel revealed 230 redesigned rooms incorporating modern comforts with original features. In celebration of its 100-year anniversary, phase two of three seamlessly represents an evolution of its renowned history.

 

Visit Bucks County (VBC) hosted its annual Event Venue Show, an exclusive meeting planner event, at the Michener Art Museum on Sep. 19. The event showcased 45 exhibitors from local Bucks County venues and businesses to 100 meeting and event planners from the Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York region.

 

North of Philadelphia, Bucks County is celebrating their record-breaking amount of visitors.  

In 2018, the county welcomed 8.15 million visitors, an increase of 1.6 percent from 2017 and achieved a record-breaking $1.1 billion in total economic impact. With such numbers, the hospitality industry is taking full advantage.  

As Bucks County tourist status rises, for the travelers who are searching for a local experience, Bucks County is filled with breweries, independent restaurants, and hidden gems to visit.
