Restaurant Week Restaurants
Hi! Planning going into the city this Sunday for my anniversary. Since restaurant week has been extended through the summer, has anyone gone to a "restaurant week participating restaurant" this summer? We were thinking of going to a matinee or sailing around Manhattan so we're not looking to get extremely dressed up. My daughter wants us to go to a Bobby Flay restaurant but I don't see them on the list! Thanks!
Oh, not sure about lunch or dinner yet. Might be lunch if we wind up doing a 3pm matinee. The other option is a sailing cruise at 7pm so that would be an early dinner but then rushed! The ship would leave down by the Southstreet Seaport if we did that. I will look up the restaurants that are mentioned here. Thanks!
If you choose the ship option, you have an abundant array of restaurants within a 10 walk (!) of your departure dock: Onda (South American), SUteiShi, (Japanese), Nelson Blue (New Zealand), Adrienne's (Pizza), and Ulysses (Irish breakfast/brunch). While none (I believe) are taking part in restaurant week, they are all very reasonably priced (menus all on menupages). The only FD place participating in RW is, I believe, Les Halles on John Street--about a 10-15 minute wall from the Seaport, it serves very reliable French bistro food. SHO Shaun Hergett, btw, is ab fab, and we entertain their with some frequency; but be aware, it is VERY upscale: I have never seen anyone without a jacket there and the normal dress code is suit, tie and white shirt. Could be very different on Sunday.

Mesa Grill is not dressy at all so it should fit the bill for you and your daughter. I've tried a bunch of places for RW and enjoyed them all, including Nobu Next Door, Mr Chow, Maze, Adour Alain Ducasse, Megu, Le Cirque, and Nougatine. RW in NYC is plenty of fun, enjoy.
