NYC & COMPANY’S FIVE-WEEK-LONG NYC RESTAURANT WEEK® SUMMER 2021 PROGRAM KICKS OFF TODAY

NYC & Company, the official destination marketing organization and convention and visitors bureau for the five boroughs of New York City, announced that NYC Restaurant Week, sponsored by Mastercard, will return to in-person dining after 18 months today through August 22, with reservations available at nycgo.com/restaurantweek. The program includes nearly 530 participating restaurants offering more than 50 distinct cuisines in 75 neighborhoods across all five boroughs, as well as updated, inclusive pricing with lunches priced at either $21 or $39 and dinners priced at either $21 or $39 (both inclusive of one entrée and at least one side and aligned to the individual restaurant price points). Diners also have the option to enjoy a new Signature Dining Experience priced at $125, inclusive of at least three courses and special enhancements. Taxes and gratuity are not included; Saturdays are blackout dates and Sundays are optional.  

Mastercard cardholders can preregister here to receive an exclusive $10 statement credit on each transaction of $39 or more while dining on-site [for up to five (5) transactions totaling a $50 rebate]* for the duration of the promotion, and each time an NYC Restaurant Week meal is purchased with a Mastercard by August 15, cardholders will also be entered for a chance to win 200,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles toward a trip anywhere American flies.**

Diners can seamlessly browse participating restaurants at nycgo.com/restaurantweek by filters including “location,” “cuisine,” “has menu,” “$10 back,” and “amenities.” Collections will also be available to help consumers choose restaurants by interests including “James Beard Honorees,” “Wine Spectator Picks,” “NYC Classics,” “Date Night,” “As Seen on TV,” “Under the Sea,” “The Slice Is Right,” “Editors’ Picks” and, lastly, a collection for Stella Artois, sponsor and official beer of NYC Restaurant Week Summer 2021, titled “Make It a Stella,” highlighting restaurants serving Stella.

As New York City continues to emerge from the pandemic and the hard-hit restaurant community works toward recovery, NYC & Company has invited all restaurants and eateries across the five boroughs to participate in NYC Restaurant Week Summer 2021 at no cost, for one, multiple or all five weeks of the program. NYC & Company has extended the in-person dining program to five weeks—the longest period in NYC Restaurant Week’s 29-year history—to coincide with NYC Homecoming Week events.
