Restaurant Week in New York City is getting stranger and stranger. First off, it lasted for 2 weeks before ending its run last Sunday. When it started, the prix fixe made infinite good sense. In the 1999, lunch cost $19.99. In 2007, it was $20.07. Something odd happened this year because despite its being 2010, Restaurant Week’s prix fixe at lunch is now $24.07. But it’s always represented an opportunity to go somewhere new and try something different which is what a group of us decided to do last Friday when we met at Resto, 111 East 29th St. between Park and Lex (212-685-5585) http://www.restonyc.com/
