NYC Restaurant Week

I believe it is fate that the same week I get to NY is the same week as NYC's Restaurant Week.  Restaurant week in NYC happens twice a year, and it's a great opportunity to try new, upscale restaurants inexpensively.  Basically, for $24 for lunch or $38 for dinner, you can get a 3 course prixe fixe meal at participating high end restaurants.  The menus usually consist of the restaurant's most popular items, and the portions are a little smaller but you get to choose from a couple of items per course.  During this time of year, I always make it a point to go to Quality Meats, which in my opinion, has the BEST steak tartare in NY.  It is a Smith & Wollensky property and the decor is inspired by old-school butcher shops.  The space is amazing, with a mix of traditional elements of vintage lights and market scales, and modern stainless steel and walnut beams.
