If you are lucky enough to be in NYC this month, you will or should be aware it is NYC Restaurant Week which has grown into a 6-week culinary celebration and runs until 21 August. As this city-wide event marks an impressive 30th anniversary, NYC Mayor, Eric Adams, along with NYC & Company, the official destination marketing organisation and CVB for the five boroughs of NYC, have announced Savor NYC: a yearlong culinary celebration.
Savour NYC – A Yearlong Culinary Celebration
During NYC Restaurant Week 30th anniversary kick-off event at Gage & Tollner—one of the oldest restaurants in New York city having first opened in 1879 and an original 1992 Restaurant Week partner—Mayor Eric Adams and NYC & Company also announced an initiative to double down on supporting and promoting every culinary corner of the five boroughs with a program titled, “Savor NYC.” The yearlong campaign will highlight monthly content including cuisines across all cultures, street carts, established restaurants, accessible cuisine, sustainable cuisines, culinary events and more across the five boroughs that make New York City the most celebrated dining destination in the world.
“NYC Restaurant Week provides New Yorkers and visitors the ability to eat at hundreds of restaurants, in dozens of neighbourhoods, across all five boroughs,” said New York City Mayor Eric Adams. “This year’s Restaurant Week is bringing diners an array of flavours with amazing deals. No matter where you dine, there is no better time to support our city’s restaurants than NYC Restaurant Week.”
“We are proud to celebrate 30 years of NYC Restaurant Week, marking three decades of exceptional deals to diners across the five boroughs,” said Fred Dixon, President and CEO of NYC & Company. “To continue celebrating the City’s world-class dining scene, we are pleased to announce the launch of Savor NYC, a yearlong culinary initiative that will spotlight the culinary community across the City’s multicultural neighbourhoods encouraging visitors to go deeper and explore more.”
Championing the Local Business Community
NYC & Company has long been committed to championing the local business community, with NYC Restaurant Week at the forefront of those efforts. The continued success of NYC Restaurant Week is a key indicator of New Yorkers’ and visitors’ desire to explore the five boroughs through food.
