Restaurant Week is Back!

The Food Revolution in New York City is in full play and we are more than excited to celebrate this awesome week--Restaurant Week. Throughout the city, various restaurants participate in "Restaurant Week" and offer the amazing deal of a three-course lunch for $25 and a three-course dinner for $38.

No worries, GoGreenRide is here to help! We have compiled a list of some of the finest restaurant's participating in Restaurant Week. 

Bobby Van’s Steakhouse located in Broad Street is known for its unique Vault Grill located in JP Morgan’s antique bank vaults. Its elegant atmosphere harkens back to the old days of banking and with its magnificent 28-day dry-aged prime steaks, the dining experience of Bobby Van’s Steakhouse and Grill is one you will never forget!

Located in the heart of the Harlem Renaissance, Lido is a home away from home. With its elegant yet relaxed setting, you and your party will be able to experience Italian tradition--eating simple and delicious meals and sharing stories with those you love!

If you're looking to enjoy delicious steaks, the Capital Grille is one of the greatest places to go. Long before their steaks meet the grill, they are carefully aged and hand-trimmed to achieve incomparable flavor that you do not want to miss!

Chef Saul Bolton has collaborated with the Brooklyn Museum to create a comfortable yet sophisticated restaurant within the public museum. With service that is always friendly, attentive and genuine you'll always come back to Saul.
