Chinatown Restaurant Week March 9-18

Chinatown Restaurant Week 2012

Anyone bummed that they missed NYC Winter Restaurant Week? Well, you can wait until later this year when dates are announced for the later season, or you can enjoy 10 days of Chinatown restaurants offering prix-fixe multi-course meals at $18.88 (how auspicious!) before tax and tip. Hopefully with this new venture, they can show that Chinese restaurants — and Chinese food, in general — can be easily accessible to tourists, generate more income, and also not constantly relegated to greasy take-out cartons.

Current participating restaurants are:

  • Haagen-Dazs Chinatown
  • Asian Roma
  • Delight 28
  • Golden Unicorn
  • Grand Bo Ky Restaurant
  • Happy Lucky
  • HK Wonton Garden
  • Lobster Boat Restaurant
  • Lucky Plaza Restaurant
  • Mike Japanese Cuisine & Bar
  • Nha Trang One
  • Nom Wah Tea Parlor
  • Peking Duck House
  • Pho Grand
  • Red Egg
  • Shanghai Gourmet
  • West New Malaysia Restaurant
  • Xe Lua Vietnamese Restaurant

Registration is still open for any restaurant in Chinatown that wants to participate so perhaps more will be listed as the days continue. I hope to go to a few of them (expect reviews!) like Red Egg and Nom Wah (maybe I can catch a Knicks game there too, haha). Also, besides featuring restaurants, there are other companies that are participating offering discounts of their services. Check out the site for more info.

Anyone else going? And do you think it’s a good move for Chinatown to start its own Restaurant Week?
