Can you believe it’s been only five years that Sunnyside has had a restaurant week? Seems like it’s been a part of the neighborhood for much longer than that. It’s always a fun time with great deals, and this time they are mixing it up with a contest.

Sunnyside Restaurant Week is again organized by Sunnyside Shines, the BID in the neighborhood, and goes from Sunday, October 1 to Saturday, October 7. Close to 30 restaurants are participating, offering a three-course dinner for $25; some will offer additional lunch specials, and a few will offer this $25 dinner menu for two people. Here are some of the participating restaurants:

Arriba Arriba
Bliss 46 Bistro
Boon by Moldova
Claret Wine Bar
Copper Kettle
Cumbia y Sabor
Dazies Restaurant
de Mole
Don Pollo
I Love Paraguay
Jack’s Fire Department

Sotto le Stelle
The Dog and Duck
The Lowery Bar and Kitchen

Head to the Sunnyside Shines website for Restaurant Week menus. As you can see, the cuisines are global and varied.

The aforementioned contest goes like this:

“This year’s Restaurant Week will also include a contest encouraging people to dine out multiple times during the week. Each time a customer orders the Restaurant Week deal at a participating restaurant, they will receive a sticker on their Restaurant Week card. Customers collecting three stickers can return their card to any participating restaurant and be entered to win dinner for four to a participating restaurant of their choice (a $250 gift certificate). Cards are available at all participating restaurants and will be distributed throughout the neighborhood during September.”

“Sunnyside Restaurant Week is a great opportunity for everyone,” says Jaime-Faye Bean, executive director of Sunnyside Shines. “It makes for a great date night for our local residents, but we also want New Yorkers from outside the neighborhood and even visitors to the City to come discover one of the City’s best neighborhoods while having a delicious and memorable meal.”

So head on over next week and get to know a new Sunnyside restaurant, or revisit a favorite. Should be a great opportunity to get in some good eats for a good price.
