restaurant week question
- lawyerlady Jan 7, 2010 02:12 PM
i'm going to be in nyc for restaurant week...(there for business or i would've planned another week to go...not a huge fan of restaurant week quality)...but do you think it's possible to get into some of these restaurants without a reservation if it's just one person?
well you dont need to participate in RW. The answer to your questions really depends on what resto it is and what time you want to go...
Of course it's possible. Check opentable and see which restaurants have tables available - that's a clue, even if you don't don't want to make a reservation yourself.
If you're "not a huge fan of restaurant week quality" (which, incidentally, varies widely from restaurant to restaurant) you can almost always order off the regular menu. And not all restaurants participate, so you can avoid those that do.
Happy to help! I've had some great restaurant week experiences and others best left unmentioned. Although there are exceptions (cough, Nobu, cough), a top tier place will still behave like a top tier place, even when providing a meal at a discount. You'll also find that some restaurants participate only at lunch.
