NYC Restaurant Week on the UWS

Restaurant week happens just a few times a year, and our residents at The Sagamore can try out the winter menus of great local eateries this month, with restaurant week taking NYC by storm again!

Restaurant week will be held from January 23rd-February 10th where several restaurants all around the Upper West Side as well as around Manhattan will offer fixed priced menus of their best dishes. If you want to try out somewhere new while getting a steal on the price or want an excuse to visit your favorite local place, NYC restaurant week is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of.

If you are looking to try a place a little different from the traditional sit down restaurant, Smoke Jazz and Supper Club will be participating in restaurant week! Located just a short ride uptown on 105th street, our Sagamore residents can sit down and enjoy some world class Jazz music while enjoying a savory meal. They will be offering a three course dinner for $42 and a $29 special brunch on Sundays. To see their full menu, check out their website.

If you are craving authentic and flavorful Mexican Cuisine, Calle Ocho located on 81st Street between Columbus and Central Park West will also be part of restaurant week! They will offer a fixed price dinner every evening except Saturday. Menu items include Pollo Peruano which is sweet plantain stuffed chicken breast, peruvian style potatoes, chicken sausage, and aleppo pepper sauce. Britee, also known as cuban style french fries is a favorite on their menu and there are several mouth mouth watering options!

Here are some other great places you can check out around the Upper West side, not too far from The Sagamore during restaurant week! Tables tend to book up quick so make sure to get in your reservation! You can also see all the participating restaurants around NYC celebrating restaurant week, by visiting OpenTable here.
