NYC & Company, the destination’s tourism marketing agency, announced that the event will run on weekdays from July 11th to 24th, with Saturdays excluded and Sundays optional for participating venues.
Returning for its 12th consecutive summer season, the initiative will offer three-course meals at fixed prices of $24.07 (£15.10) for lunches and $35 for dinners.
A number of new restaurants will be taking part this year, including Junoon, Macelleria, Osteria Morini and Socarrat Paella Bar.
Seasoned participants like Delmonico’s, Le Cirque and Tribeca Grill will be returning, giving visitors the opportunity to sample their culinary offerings at low prices.

“This season will kick off a two-part commemoration of the city’s largest culinary program that will conclude with its 20th anniversary. We encourage everyone to partake in this New York City tradition that has influenced events the world over and claimed a part of history.”
