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.

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
