NEW YORK—Restaurant Week NYC kicked off on Monday with New Yorkers enjoying a warm treat with family and friends during the coldest day of winter so far.

Through Feb 6., selected dining packages are being offered at the city’s finest restaurants. The uniform charge is $24.07 for a three-course lunch and $35 for a three-course dinner, a fraction of normal prices. However, these prices exclude beverages and taxes.

There are more than 300 participating restaurants and include top providers of an array of cuisines, from Japanese to Italian, according to an official press release.

Reservations can be made online at NYCGo’s official website or at OpenTable.com (Saturdays excluded).

A biannual promotion, the next NYC Restaurant Week will happen again this summer. Last summer, the week was so popular that it was extended by six weeks.
