PARTICIPATION FEE 

As you may know, NYC & Company waived the participation fees for all restaurants for both NYC Restaurant Week To Go Winter 2021 and NYC Restaurant Week Summer 2021. We were able to secure funding from the Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment to cover fees for both the Winter 2022 and Summer 2022 programs. NYC & Company recognizes these past few years have been a challenging time across the restaurant industry and wanted to do all we could to help as many restaurants as possible with our programming for the last four programs. For 2023, we are offering up to 300 complimentary registrations and, once filled, reinstating a participation fee at a significant discount. These fees will directly support the robust marketing plan for the program. As a 501(c)6 organization, membership dues, including the participation fees for NYC Restaurant Week, are crucial for the continued success of the program. 
 

Thanks to generous support from the Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment, the first 50 registrants in each of the six regions outlined below will receive complimentary registration (one per restaurant group/related restaurants). Their support also covers the nearly 50% discount on the participation fee for any restaurants that do not receive complimentary registration. 

  
Payment can be made via credit card online or you can request an invoice. This invoice will be emailed to you after registration has been completed. Payment must be made on or prior to December 8, 2022, to guarantee inclusion for launch. Fee includes both Winter and Summer 2023 NYC Restaurant Week and your membership for the year. Participation fees are nonrefundable.

  • Your business must accept Mastercard as a form of payment in order to participate in this element of the promotion. Cash-only establishments and businesses that do not accept Mastercard as payment are ineligible. 

  • Your business may not be eligible for this promotion if Mastercard is unable to uniquely identify your business in their system as an independent merchant. 

  • Statement credit amount 

  • $10 credit to cardholder on $45+ spend in single transaction
