This week is not the first Restaurant Week you have heard of in New York City. In fact, there seems to be one for every season of the year. The difference? The following two series are not on the island of Manhattan. Bronx and Hudson Valley, these are for you!
In its fifth year, Savor the Bronx Restaurant Week (@SavorTheBronx), produced by the Bronx Tourism Council, showcases the borough’s best eateries with pre-fixe lunches for $16.41 and dinners for $20.15. Running Nov. 2 to 13, Savor the Bronx is your opportunity to explore the borough one meal at a time. From Italian cuisine in Little Italy to seafood on City Island, there is something for everyone. With more than 40 restaurants participating, this year’s Savor the Bronx Restaurant Week, is the biggest ever.

And the Hudson Valley is sending up smoke signals to all in the land with their annual Fall Restaurant Week, held Nov. 2 to 15. With more than 200 restaurants participating from Yonkers to Kingston, these two weeks might be the biggest and longest dinner party you have ever attended. During the two-week period, three-course dinners are $29.95 and lunches are $20.95 at some of the best restaurants you have never heard of, of which you should become very familiar. Roundhouse is a stellar night out in Beacon for New American food. Lusardi’s in Larchmont will show you an authentic Italian time.
Hudson Valley Restaurant Week is not just for those who live there—and those who have cars. Many of the restaurants are easily accessible via Metro-North. Visit the event’s website at www.hudsonvalleyrestaurantweek.com for a complete list and for more information.
