File this under inevitable: Restaurant Week, NYC's annual feast of bargain eating at the city's top restaurants, has jumped on board the current foodie truck-trend. This year, there will be actually be a Restaurant Week Truck serving various soups from the city's fanciest eateries.
The truck will be in three locations over the next two weeks, starting at Broadway and 51st through 1/29, Fifth Ave and 19th from 2/1-2/3 and Greenwich and Warren from 2/4-2/5. Today's featured soup: City Crab's famous New England clam chowder. The Restaurant Week Truck website has the full menu. Also, a dollar from each soup will go towards relief efforts in Haiti.
As for regular old-fashioned Restaurant Week which takes place in an actual restaurant, it started yesterday and goes til Feb 7. Lunch is $24.10 and dinner is $35.00 at more than 100 restaurants throughout the city. I'm kicking my Restaurant Week adventures off today with lunch at 10 Downing, the new Jason Neroni joint (he created the famed 71 Clinton Street). You can look at menus for a number of restaurants this year on the Restaurant Week website and make online reservations for most of them as well.
