Restaurant Week at the Seaport
Cold weather. New Year’s resolutions. The start of the year can feel like a drag. But thanks to NYC Restaurant Week, you’ve got the perfect excuse to brighten up winter days and nights with prix-fixe lunches and dinners priced between $29 and $59 per person at the city’s best eateries. At the Seaport, The Fulton, Malibu Farm, The Greens, and Carne Mare are all taking part—so take a look at your calendar between now and February 13, make it a date and make that reservation.
Here’s a taste of what you can expect from the Seaport’s Restaurant Week two-course lunch and three-course dinner menus.
Winter Restaurant Week at The Fulton
Inject some flavor and fab river views into your work week with a $39 lunch at The Fulton, Monday to Friday. Get your greens in with a first course of Arugula and Shaved Brussels Sprouts or opt for the Long Island Fluke or Crispy Calamari Herb Salad. Your main course options are Crispy Fish Tacos with chipotle mayonnaise and spicy slaw, Roasted Hake with cauliflower purée and broccoli rabe, or the Faroe Island Salmon, a Fulton classic, served with fennel, celery root and kumquat.
A similar lineup makes up the $59-a-head dinner menu, also available Monday to Friday. First course options are the same as at lunch; the second course is a choice of the salmon, the hake, or the Mezze Rigatoni, with peekytoe crab, eggplant and parmesan. Cap the night with The Fulton’s signature Cookie for dessert (marshmallow and Nutella are involved)—or a refreshing selection of ice cream and sorbet.
Winter Restaurant Week at Malibu Farm
If you’re new to Chef Helene Henderson’s veggie-forward ethos, Restaurant Week is the perfect time to sample some of Malibu Farm’s most-loved dishes. The weekday lunch menu ($39 per person) features numerous gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan options, including the Butternut Squash Soup, BLT Kale Caesar, and Tofu Coconut Curry. The grass-fed Malibu Bacon Burger is also available.
Malibu Farm’s Restaurant Week dinner is $59 per person, available Monday to Friday—and Sunday nights. The Black Bass Ceviche and Roasted Gulf Shrimp Fra Diavolo “Pasta” (fresh zucchini noodles) are two gluten- and dairy-free options for dinner, while other options include pan-seared Faroe Island Salmon and pan-seared Organic Crispy Chicken, with garlic mashed potatoes. Seasonal sorbet or the Chocolate Pot de Creme round things out for dessert.
Winter Restaurant Week at The Greens
Rooftop speakeasy—paired with prix-fixe menus? It’s a winning combo at The Greens during NYC Restaurant Week within its intimate lounge. A 2-course lunch, is $29 per person, with a smorgasbord of options, including Miso Soup, Chickpea Hummus or Guacamole to start; then Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Meatballs and Polenta, or a Roasted Cauliflower Wedge as entrées. If you’re coming to cozy up alongside the bar’s toasty fireplaces for dinner—$39 a head—a few additional internationally inspired dishes will be in the mix, such as Spicy Tuna Tartare, Soy Braised Beef Short Rib with Egg Noodles, or a hearty Mushroom Bolognese Lasagna. Restaurant Week specials are available every day through February 13 within the indoor bar portion of The Greens.
Winter Restaurant Week at Carne Mare
Ward off the Sunday scaries with a decadent brunch at Andrew Carmellini’s stylish Italian chop house. Carne Mare is offering a $59-per-person prix-fixe menu on Sundays, making Restaurant Week the perfect time to indulge in appetizers like Yellowfin Tuna Tartare or Spanish Octopus Carpaccio, and secondi with serious food cred like the Chop House Benedict or AC’s Famous Prime Rib Sandwich. Steak & Eggs is another main option (for a surcharge), while the dolce choices—Sweet Cream Panna Cotta with winter citrus or Lemon Sorbeto with limoncello—complete the experience with a light flourish.
