New York City Restaurant Week returns Monday with even more deals – CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – After a year and a half of plans being cancelled, reservations are reopening for one of New York City’s biggest events.

Restaurant week began on Monday, returning indoors for the first time since the pandemic began, CBS2’s Lisa Rozner reported Sunday.

Smokers are ready to head to Queens Bully in Forest Hills. This is the first year this grill spot joins.

“Normally a lot of restaurants in Queens don’t get the chance to participate in Restaurant Week, so we were lucky this year they opened it up,” said Queens Bully owner Rohan Aggarwal.

Starting Monday, the restaurant will be offering lunch and dinner specials. The sandwiches relate to Astoria’s Greek cuisine, Corona’s Latin flavors and Indian influences from Jackson Heights.

“As you know, Queens is the melting pot of New York City, so we show that in our taste here,” Aggarwal said.

Queens Bully is one of more than 500 restaurants in 75 different neighborhoods that offer takeaway and/or dine-in experiences. Restaurant Week specials include a main course and at least one side dish, plus dessert at certain points.

Lunch or dinner options are $21 or $39, and some high-end restaurants are offering the experience for $125.

“The show will take place for Five weeks, This is the longest in-person dining period in Restaurant Week’s 29-year history,” said Alyssa Schmid, a spokeswoman for NYC & Company.

And step back in time and dine during Restaurant Week at Sac’s on 35th Avenue in Astoria, located on the perimeter of Kaufman Astoria Studios.

“There is a lot of history here. There’s a lot of history from Kaufman, Rudolph Valentino, Wall, the silent stars who ate here and this is part of their whole experience,” said Domenico Sacramone, Sac’s co-owner.

Inside there are relics, like a fan from the 1920s, that you can hold while sitting and of course enjoying the food.

Recipes like ravioli, with sauces made fresh on the spot, have been passed down generations to the Sacramone family in Italy.

“I love participation because we all need help. Little by little, people are gaining more courage to come out on the field,” Sacramone said.

As the restaurant community struggles to recover from lost revenue, the city’s tourism arm, NYC & Company, has waived registration for restaurants. Joint ventures are what businesses hope will be part of a rebuilding formula to bring in new and returning customers.
