Facts About NY Restaurant WeekRestaurant week is New York City's biggest dining and culinary celebration. We started in 1992, it was actually a one-time event that started for all the delegates that were coming into the city for the democratic national convention, and it became so popular that we kept it around. It started as summer, a few years later we added winter into that, and here we are 20 years later with one of the most popular dining events, really the entire country not just in New York City.
