New York City adapts to the COVID-19 Pandemic by changing NYC Restaurant Week Winter 2021 into NYC Restaurant Week To Go Winter 2021 with $20.21 lunches or dinners to go, Monday-Sunday, January 25-31, 2021.
Restaurants can chose to extend the promotion for another week through Sunday, February 7. It’s extended to February 28.
It’s important that we buy local and support New York City businesses. The restauranteurs who are still operating have made significant efforts to stay in business and keep New Yorkers employed.
This season, enjoy African, Argentine, Brazilian, Caribbean, Colombian, Cuban, Chinese, Ethiopian, Filipino, French, Indian, Italian, Mexican, Peruvian, Portuguese, Spanish, Thai, and Vietnamese cuisines TO GO.
Celebrity Chefs Are Participating
The bad thing about reporting on food is that your mouth gets wet and you get very hungry. These are some of the celebrity chefs in NYC Restaurant Week To Go Winter 2021.
Some of these chefs are from one culture, but serving up cuisine of another culture. Being understood by someone from outside your culture is the ultimate compliment. How cool is that?

NYC Restaurant Week

While indoor dining is prohibited because of the COVID-19 risk, we just switch to take out.
