Restaurant Week kicks off on January 17. The event, which is no longer one week, but closer to one month, offers lunch and dinner deals at some of North Brooklyn’s best restaurants. Two popular Greenpoint spots are participating this year, while twelve Williamsburg restaurants are offering deals.
Some restaurants are participating for only part of Restaurant Week, but the majority are offering the menu for the full four weeks. Some restaurants are offering deals during the week only, but many include brunch or dinner on Sundays.
Most of the Restaurant Week lunch menus are $30, while the dinner menus are $45, but some restaurants are offering more expensive (and extravagant) options.
Browse the list below of every place in North Brooklyn offering Restaurant Week deals.
