Make Your Reservations at These Celebrity Chef-Run Spots For Restaurant Week

Restaurant week in New York City starts on Monday, July 25th and runs until August 19th. It’s a good opportunity to try some restaurants you might otherwise not get to at a lower cost. For $25 at lunch and $42 at dinner (excluding tax and tip) you can get three courses. Celebrity chefs, of course, have gotten in on the action. We’ve rounded up a list of some of our favorite celebrity chefs who are participating, and when. It’s worth noting that Saturdays are excluded from the promo so if you want to take advantage, get there during the week or on Sundays. It’s also worth noting that not every restaurant participates in both lunch and dinner every day. Here’s what we’re working with, in no particular order:
