The Summer of Good Eating

NYC Restaurant Week rolls in

Step away from your stovetop: It's time to treat yourself.

NYC Restaurant Week is back this summer from July 20 through August 14, so you can leave your hot kitchen behind and settle into a table at one of New York City's most buzz-worthy spots.

There are 37 new restaurants this year, like the ever-evolving Chefs Club by Food & Wine and Brooklyn hot spot The Gorbals. Visit nycgo.com to get the full list, read the menus and book your reservation.

There, you'll find three-course prix fixe lunches ($25) and dinners ($38) at more than 360 restaurants around the Big Apple.

Plus, if you're an American Express Card Member, you'll get treated right back with this exclusive NYC Restaurant Week offer: Card Members can enroll any eligible American Express Card and get a $5 statement credit up to four times for using their Card to spend $25 or more at any participating restaurant.

As you wine and dine your way through long lunches and dinners alfresco, be sure to share your meal on Instagram with #NYCRestaurantWeek for a chance to win $250 worth of restaurant gift certificates.

Dinner's on you next time.
