12. And NYC Restaurant Week has a long history of giving back
Proceeds from various events throughout the years have benefitted charities like Citymeals-On-Wheels, Share Our Strength (currently No Kid Hungry), and more recently, City Harvest.
13. There are 41 new restaurants this year
It’s time to finally try ABC Cocina!
14. Yes, Sunday brunch is available
You don’t need to be told how serious brunch is in this town, so of course it’s a big part of NYC Restaurant week. Try Bocca Di Bacco in the Theater District for some Italian, Macondo West in the West Village for gourmet style Latin-American street food, and the Cecil in Harlem for some Afro-Asian-American fare.
