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.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
