I love Restaurant Week in NYC. Winter: January 24-February 6. Lunch is $24.07 and Dinner is $35.00. There are over 300 restaurants participating.
My first restaurant is Petrossian, on 58th and 7th Avenue. It was Founded in 1984 by the Petrossian family. It serves a French influenced contemporary menu. The bar has an enormous Art Deco style, the china is Limoges a Lanvin Chandelier and the Crystal by Lalique. Champagne and Caviar always in season and so stylish to be seen sipping vodka.
