Prix Fixe lunch deals?

Hi there,

Last time I went to New York (about 5 years ago) a lot of the best restaurant in town seemed to have some great 3 course lunches available in the $20-35 range. I haven't been able to find a list of places that offer such deals currently. Can anyone help me out with some recommendations? Preferably somewhere that has great food and looks pretty fancy.

Also, can someone explain the current situation at Jean Georges with respect to their prix fixe lunch? The website doesn't exactly make it clear...

Thanks,

Dan

  1. Kittichai has a great 3-course lunch prix-fixe for $20, or $32 with wine pairings. Can't beat it.

    1. The Jean George two course lunch is the same was it was before, just $32 now.

      Unfortunately, EMP appears to be out of the equation now with their new menu system.

      Other prix fixe lunches:

      Del Posto
      Tocquevile
      Gotham Bar and Grill
      Aldea
      SHO

      1. I was at Cafe Boulud this weekend and I think the three course option was $35 - 38? There was also a two course option.

        1. You may be thinking of NY's Restaurant week(s), which will be from Jan 24 - Feb 6. Check out www.nycgo.com/restaurantweek - maybe it fits into your schedule. For participating restaurants, lunch will be $24.07 and dinner $35.00. (Some of the restaurants already mentioned offer $24.07 lunches all year. )

          1. Bouley has a wonderful multi-course lunch for $36.

              agreed. i know you are a big supporter of Bouley, so I'm not surprised to see your post. i've only been once, but echo your sentiment. i can't imagine a better value. if there is one, i'd like to go tomorrow.

              1. re: coasts

                I just wish their wines were less marked up.

                1. re: buttertart

                  having been at EMP two days earlier, we were feeling especially cost conscious and skipped drinks altogether. i didn't even look!

                  1. re: coasts

                    Nothing is cheap, believe me. Food is very good and we just can't eat like that without wine.

              2. re: ellenost

                FWIW, Bouley is now $55 for lunch. it's no longer the best deal in Manhattan. I'd choose Del Posto over Bouley at this point.
