New York City Restaurant Week is back and better than ever with over 600 participating restaurants, including more than 30 in Queens.

Beginning Jan. 16 and running through Feb. 4, NYC Restaurant Week bills itself as an opportunity to explore new dining experiences as well as return to some familiar favorites. Participating restaurants offer two-course lunches and three-course prix-fixe dinners at $30, $45 and $60 — an inviting price point for those looking to try something new and perhaps more exotic, or those looking to indulge in a more robust dining experience than usual.

Launched in 1992, Restaurant Week was started by Tim Zagat and Joe Baum as a one-week, lunch-only promotional program to encourage those who were in town for that year’s Democratic National Convention to engage with local businesses. Restaurant Week is now bi-annual and has seen numerous cities across the country participate in similar events.

Whether you’re craving Mexican delights in Astoria, seeking affordable Chinese cuisine in LIC, indulging in barbecue flavors in Forest Hills, or showcasing your chopsticks prowess in Flushing, there’s something for every palate.

Op-Ed: CUNY’s expanding nursing footprint fills big New York need 

Feb. 28, 2024 By Félix V. Matos Rodríguez

One of CUNY’s contributions to the vitality of New York City is our role educating nurses for the city’s health care workforce. Our nursing programs graduate 1,800 nurses a year, about half the new nurses hired by the city’s hospitals, clinics and medical facilities. It’s an impressive number but the growing demand for nurses in our city and state means CUNY needs to do more — and we are.
