Don't skip the homemade pasta at Ai Fiori. Carbs be damned.
We always find it amusing New York Restaurant Week falls just a few weeks after the new year, when those plum hotel restaurants we've been dying to try, drop their prices for 20 whole days of diet-busting deliciousness.
This year's event goes from January 14–February 8 and patrons will be treated to three-course prix-fixe lunches for $25 and dinners for $38.00. There are over 300 restos participating (a list can be found at NYCGO), but we're detailing our Top 10 Picks here. Unless noted, these are for Mon-Friday lunch and dinner seatings. Saturday dinner isn't included, but some places do have Sunday lunch and dinner availability.
Asellina at the Gansevoort Park Avenue: We defy you not to order the veal meatballs, prosciutto and black truffle flatbread without tears rolling from your eyes. And that's just for starters. Sunday lunch and dinner included.

Exactly a month ago, we gave you our Top Five list of which New York hotel restaurants would be the creme de la crème picks for Restaurant Week. Well, a Restaurant Week red alert is fully in effect around the city as locals stumble about with gourmet stomachaches and a newfound love for tipping calculators.
Since our top pick was Town Restaurant at Midtown's Chambers Hotel, we felt it was only proper to do some reconnaissance ourselves and report back on any delights found therein. After a hearty meal we discovered our instincts were right; Town was a delight, perhaps second only in Restaurant Week awesomeness to an amazing lunch we once had at Tom Colicchio's Craft.

While one hotel in Tribeca frets about finding an executive chef, the rest of Manhattan hotels are looking forward to Restaurant Week.
For New Yorkers and anyone visiting New York between July 21 and August 1--the flood gates are (almost) open as Amex cardholders can begin placing reservations for Restaurant Week now. All you plebes without Amex cards can have a go at it beginning tomorrow.
For the uninitiated, New York Restaurant Week seems a lot like the similar offerings in cities like Boston, Chicago, Washington D.C. and even Indianapolis, but it becomes quickly clear that NY's Restaurant Week (NYRW as it's abbreviated in office emails) is on steroids.
For New Yorkers, a prix fixe $24.07 lunch or $35 dinner at hot tables like Gramercy Tavern and Nobu means rearranging their lives during these two weeks of frantic gustatory indulgence.
For Hotel fiends, NYRW simply means that we get to slip into the city's hottest hotel restaurants without dropping $100+ or strong-arming an out-of-town friend to dine in. Because this is a city with a mass amount of hotels trying to be cool by tacking on top-of-the-line kitchens to their 5-star reputations, the selection for NYRW is quite juicy and ultra tempting...
