Question: NYC's Fab Summer Restaurant Week: When Is It? How Much? And Where in Brooklyn?
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?
Answer:

1. When is New York's Restaurant Week This Summer, 2013?

For the summer 2013 season, NYC Summer Restaurant Week runs from July 22-August 16, 2013. It's not just a Manhattan event. Restaurants from all five boroughs participate.

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

How Much are Restaurant Meals During NYC Restaurant Week?

Lunch costs $25, and dinner costs $38 per person.

What Brooklyn Restaurants are Participating in Summer NYC Restaurant Week?

As in the past, in 2013, only a handful of Brooklyn restaurants participated in New York's city-wide summer Restaurant Week event, for instance:

For a full list of all Manhattan and outer borough participating restaurants, and information including how to book, see the NYC Restaurant Week website.

Buyer Beware

Many Brooklyn restaurants generally price meals below the "special offer" for the NYC Restaurant Week Special, so the prix fixe offer for this restaurant promotion may not make pocket-book sense in much of Brooklyn.

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

Brooklyn has it's own Restaurant Week, called Dine in Brooklyn with hundreds of local participating restaurants.
