NYC Restaurant Week's Best Tables
The twice-annual NYC Restaurant Week returns for 30 days to commemorate its 30th anniversary. To help guide the way, we’ve sorted through the hundreds-long list of restaurants offering prix-fixe selections for brunch, lunch, and dinner, to bring you the very best reservations downtown.
Tiny’s and the Bar Upstairs
The theme and décor here reflect a love of American industrial design after World War II: the salmon-colored metropolitan haven features exposed brick walls, pressed tin ceilings, vintage wall trimmings, a fireplace, and a bar befitted in aged copper. Such astute attention to detail also pours into the cuisine which showcases New American fare with Italian and French influences.
Sant Ambroeus, SoHo
Certain restaurants, much like people, possess the gift of never being out of fashion. Sant Ambroeus is among these. Since opening its SoHo location in January 2014, the downtown spot has become like a living room for its coterie of fashionable regulars. Romance languages might be heard at the curving bar up front where caffe and pastries (made uptown at the Madison location) are available to stay or to go. You’ll want to stay, the better to scope out the fashionable crowd and eye the elegant interiors.
Sant Ambroeus is offering a prix-fixe lunch and dinner menu, both available to view—here.
Underneath the Prada store on Mercer Street lies Lure Fishbar, the SoHo seafood mecca for those with glamorous looks and good taste. Once you step downstairs, the beautiful interior of Lure stuns with high gloss wood and leather—a replica of a luxury yacht that one can imagine being docked at a glamorous seaside locale. An outstanding oyster bar, towers of shellfish, and quality burgers stand out amongst an array of sushi, fish and meat entrees, and small plates.
A nod to downtown fine-dining of yore that feels as fresh as it does familiar. The décor is clean and modern without being cold, and diners will be treated to chef Marcus Glocker’s inventive Nouveau French/American cuisine with a three-course prix-fixe for Restaurant Week.

Reservations for Summer Restaurant Week 2022 run through August 21st.
