NYC foodies rejoice! Restaurant Week is here at last! Well, almost.

This winter’s NYC Restaurant Week kicks off on January 25 and runs through February 7 (and lucky for you, that’s actually two weeks). The list of participating restaurants went up yesterday, which means it’s time to get a jump on your reservations!

Twice a year New York City teams up with some of its best restaurants to give voracious eaters a chance to dine at top spots for discount prices, with participants offering  a three-course lunch for $24 and/or a three-course dinner for $35.

New York’s hotels are home to many of this winter’s participating eateries, not all of which are worth your time.  Below we’ll tell you about some of our favorite hotel restaurants around NYC, all equally worthy of  your reservations.
