NYC Restaurant Week returns from July 12–31, with some 250 eateries offering three-course dinners at $35 every night except Sat. Participants include hard-to-get intos like DBGB, JoJo, Megu, and Morimoto. The Third Night luxury hotel promotion runs through September 7, with (relatively!) great deals from hostelries such as the Plaza, Waldorf=Astoria, New York Palace, and (our favorite) Carlyle. The package also includes a Sakfs Fifth Avenue “VIP Bag,” and discounts to the flagship at 49th Street. And, finally, Culture Spot—which features a new cultural institution and special offer each month—continues to run throughout the year. In July, the light is shone on the new Museum of Art and Design, the re-tooled American Craft Museum in the reconfigured 2 Columbus Circle building. The special offers two-for-one admission discounts, as well as savings at MAD’s irresistible gift shop. Information: www.nycgo.com.
