City’s Restaurant Week Kicks Off Today, 45 Queens Businesses Participating

(Provided by NYC & Company)

Jan. 25, 2021 By Michael Dorgan

A citywide initiative kicks off Monday to help struggling restaurants generate some much-needed cash in the midst of ongoing coronavirus lockdowns.

The initiative, called Restaurant Week To Go, features 45 restaurants in Queens as part of the 570 eateries that are participating.

The event runs from Jan. 25 through Jan. 31 and participating eateries are offering customers takeout or delivery meals for $20.21. Each meal will come with at least one side and will be available for either lunch or dinner, or both, depending on the restaurant.

The event is a reimagined winter version of NYC Restaurant Week, which is typically held across the city every summer but was canceled last year due to the pandemic.

NYC & Company, the quasi city tourism and marketing agency that is organizing the event, said the initiative seeks to stimulate an industry that has been hit hard by bans on indoor dining.

“Restaurants and restaurant workers need our support now more than ever,” said Fred Dixon, President and CEO of NYC & Company.

Dixon said that restaurants will get an opportunity to showcase the best of what they have to offer and customers can show their support by availing of the deals.

“To New Yorkers we say make plans to do your part – order often and be generous with gratuities.”

Restaurants will also be given an option to extend the offer until Feb. 7 if they so choose.

The payment company Mastercard is sponsoring the event and is offering discounts to its customers. Mastercard customers who sign up for the company’s All In NYC: Neighborhood Getaways promotion will receive a free $10 credit for each order they make using their Mastercard credit card. The offer can be used to a maximum credit of $100.

Seamless, Grubhub, BentoBox, Bbot and Tock are reducing their commissions or waiving delivery fees for the meal offers.
