A year ago, only 17 restaurants in the wards outside Manhattan took an interest in the program. That number has expanded to 184 — remembering 78 for Brooklyn alone — for the forthcoming promotion.
“Restaurants and restaurant laborers need our help now like never before,” said the office’s CEO, Fred Dixon in an articulation. “Us that all diners across the five precincts had the chance to take an interest.”
Partaking restaurants including Babbo, Blue Smoke, Red Rooster, Pastis, Quality Eats, Mercer Kitchen and Bar Boulud are offering lunch or supper with one side dish for $20.21.

RedFarm proprietor Ed Schoenfeld said his two Chinese diners have just been doing an energetic conveyance business. that could increment one week from now, he predicted. “I figure Restaurant Week To Go will help everybody.”
RedFarm may present “a bit of seared rice and two or three dumplings and egg move,” Schoenfeld stated, “and for a week we can make a venture and incorporate something provocative.”
This year the program is viewed as a greater amount of a financial need than in years past in light of the fact that the low value point is by and large not a benefit sponsor for most restaurants.
