In the summer, New York City's famous Restaurant Week offers diners a chance to have fixed price meals at good restaurants. It's a great opportunity to try new restaurants, and sample fare that might otherwise be out of price range. Book ahead; it's hugely popular, attracting food lovers who crave both new restaurant experiences and good prices. But the question is: which, if any, Brooklyn restaurants will participate in NYC Restaurant Week this summer?

 

When is New York's Restaurant Week This Summer, 2014?

NYC Summer Restaurant Week runs from July 21-August 15, 2014. 

Tip : Book as early as possible; it's tough to get a reservation at the better known restaurants. 

What Brooklyn Restaurants Participate in Summer NYC Restaurant Week?

NYC Restaurant basically excludes Brooklyn restaurants. Or maybe they choose not to participate. Whichever reason, as in the past, only a handful of Brooklyn restaurants will participate  in this year's New York's city-wide summer Restaurant Week event:

For a full list of all participating restaurants, and information including how to book, see this helpful Restaurant Week guide.

How Much is a Meal?

A three course lunch costs $25, and a three course dinner costs $38, exclusive of beverages and tip.

Brooklyn's Own Restaurant Week, "Dine In Brooklyn"

Brooklyn has had its own Restaurant Week, called Dine in Brooklyn with hundreds of local participating restaurants. However, this event was not supported by Brooklyn Borough Hall in 2014. It remains to be seen if it will be reinstated for 2015. What Happened to Dine in Brooklyn?
