Event: NYC Restaurant Week (New York, NY)
It's filled with great foods from expensive expensive restaurants, at a reasonable price - that time of year is restaurant week. For just $25 any foodie, or regular joe that just wants a delicious meal, can indulge in a 3 course meal at a myriad of locations. Dinner is an equally good deal, three courses for $38.
Although, as an experienced restaurant week-goer, be sure to ask if you have any questions about the overly-sophisticated menus. While you can end up having the best meal of your life, I've also ended up with some quite interesting foods, that maybe some would call delicacies - but that I would call in-edible.
Just last year I ordered a calimari as my appetizer, little did I know, it wasn't the fried and breaded deliciousness that I was used to, it was just plain grilled calimari... And all because I thought I'd look silly asking questions.
