If one of your New Years resolutions this year is to get better with money, you might be surprised that going out to eat is actually within your budget. That is, if you do it during Grand Street Restaurant Week, which runs from January 29th through February 11th (it’s now 2 weeks long instead of just a week). If you haven’t checked it out anytime in the last 5 years it’s been running, you can get pretty insane deals on full course meals at delicious local joints. This year, a 2-course lunch will run you $8-13, and a 3-course dinner $13-30. Also, if you Instagram your Restaurant Week feast with #DineOnGrand and tag @GrandStreetBID, you’ll be entered to win $50 at your favorite Grand Street Restaurant! Continue reading →
Looking for a way to donate this holiday season? For this year’s Grand Street Gives Back, nearly a dozen businesses on the East Williamsburg section of Grand Street are hosting collection boxes at their stores for folks to drop off food items (unexpired, un-dented, non-perishables). All of the food collected will be donated to St. John The Evangelist Church‘s Food Pantry (195 Maujer St). The St. John’s programs offer hot meals and grocery assistance to more than 150 families per week. Check the image after the jump for a list of participating locations, or click here: Continue reading →
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! Continue reading →
If you’re in need of dinner or lunch plans, here’s some news you can use. Grand Street Restaurant Week, a project of the Grand Street Business Improvement District, is happening now until Sunday the 12th. This year, twelve Grand Street restaurants are offering two-course lunch specials for $15 or less, and three-course dinner specials for $30 or less. Notable participants include The Sandwich Shop, The Starlight, and Ryujin Ramen (that’ll be really good during the snowstorm). Menus can be found here.
Another one to check out is Pie Smith, a build-your-own pie and panini shop started by a long-time Brooklyn family. Also, if you Instagram your restaurant week prix-fixe meal with #DineOnGrand and @GrandStreetBID, there’s a chance to win a $25 gift card to your favorite Grand Street spot!
Notable among this year’s participants is Mediterranean joint Dar 525 (525 Grand Street), whose offerings will include kafta kebab and chicken gyro platters, falafel sandwiches, and safiha pizza with ground lamb, beef, tomato, and parsley. The owner will match all of Dar 525’s dinner proceeds Monday through Friday and donate them to Sheltering Arms, a non-profit that provides a wide array of services to low-income NYC youth and families.

My Mom and I have a thing – it’s called Restaurant Week, and whenever it rolls around I am mixed with excitement but also dread because I only take the subway to Manhattan to get my teeth pulled and otherwise avoid it at all costs.
We have everything we need right here in Brooklyn (except my dentist, apparently) and now the first-ever Grand Street Restaurant Week is happening this Monday, February 17 through Sunday, February 23rd.
