If you’ve eaten out on Grand Street this week, you’d have noticed it is Grand Street Restaurant Week once again! Unlike the regular Restaurant Week, Grand Street’s lets the restaurant set the price. This means you can have a two-course lunch special for $9-$15, and three-course dinner for $12-$30. To sweeten the deal, Grand Street BID is throwing an Instagram contest where the best photo wins a $50 gift card. And who couldn’t use a (basically free) $50. It’s honestly one of the better ways to eat out and support small businesses this weekend!

This time around, a few new restaurants have joined the mix. They are Wafa’s Express (812 Grand St), who have some of the best Middle Eastern food in the city according to the NY Times; Ammazza Caffe (702 Grand St) that stocks over 60 Amaros and makes all their pasta in-house; and Lolita Grand (507 Grand St), a new South American restaurant for all your empanada and cachaça needs.

The offerings can be found up and down Grand from a $12 nachos and tacos lunch at Los Tacos-Mcondo (502 Grand St) to $20 ramen or bukkake udon dinner from Ryujin (513 Grand St) to a full $30 three-course classic Italian dinner at Forcella (485 Lorimer St) to the fantastic deal at Indian Kitchen (739 Grand St) where three people can get a small feast for $30. All of the deals are better than you’d get from the regular restaurant week, and really, it’s summer, who wants to cook all weekend long? Click here to see more of what’s being offered through Sunday night dinner!

About that Instagram contest, to enter you need to tag your photos with #DineonGrand and tag @GrandStreetBID. The best photo of Grand Street Restaurant Week wins a $50 restaurant gift card, which for me equals free dinner. Good luck, everybody!
