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.

Washington D.C.’s up-and-coming Capitol Riverfront neighborhood is the ideal backdrop for Thompson Hotels’ new 225-room property set to open this winter. Thompson Washington D.C. will flaunt 7,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space with sweeping floor-to-ceiling views.

 

Pestana Hotel Group has announced that it will be opening its first property in New York. The new hotel, Pestana Park Avenue, is located at 23 E. 39th St. between Park and Madison avenues and within walking distance from Grand Central Terminal, the United Nations Headquarters, Bryant Park, Fifth Avenue and many more attractions.

 

Situated in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania is Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. Despite being just an hour and half from Pittsburgh and 40 minutes from Morgantown airport, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort can be found nestled in the pastoral countryside, surrounded by expansive landscapes of mountains, forests and waterfalls.
