Dining in Style and for a Good Price: Fashion Plates to Wear and Eat
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly

Starting this week, coinciding with Gotham's famed Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, 28 ever-so-chic Upper West Side restaurants are stepping up to the plate (virtually) and are offering their "Fashion Plate" deals on meals.  The Lincoln Square Business Improvement District's successful dining promotion, "Fashion Plate" is back this year, and there is a wide range of eateries participating, some with jaw-dropping, over-the-top menus -- places you've always wanted to try, but were hesitant. The event runs from the 7th to the 14th for Fashion Week. The promotion expands each season with American Table Café & Bar, Andanada 141, and Arpeggio Food & Wine being three of the latest additions to the list of participating restaurants.

Also new this season, a few of the participants are offering drink specials such as $5 Blackberry Bellinis at ’wichcraft (at David Rubenstein Atrium). There are also deals for Fashion Week staff, at other, more affordable eateries where the crews working Fashion Week can get a delicious take-out meal to be eaten on the fly, with a deep discount. (That program is called Crew Cuts and it's for the staffs of Fashion Week, who survive for eight days on breathing mere air and eating take-out.) But Fashion Plate restaurants are open to all.

"The Lincoln Square community loves playing host to visitors from around the city and the world -- and our restaurants are always eager to offer special deals. Whether you have tickets to watch the runway shows, Fashion Plate is a fun and tasty way to celebrate," noted Monica Blum, president of the Lincoln Square Business Improvement District, which has spearheaded this program since its inception.


Fashion Plate Prix Fixe is open to all (just get yourself a reservation first, so you can be assured you get into your favorite places) for lunch, dinner, and brunches during Fashion Week.  Some of New York City's newest hotspots, including Boulud Sud and The Leopard (in the old Café des Artistes spot; pictured above) are participating. Twenty-eight restaurants are offering outstanding menu options, for example: Upper West Side staple Atlantic Grill's three-course prix-fixe lunch and dinner for $25.00 and $38.00 respectively; A Voce's $33.00 three-course prix fixe lunch; The Smith is hosting a $27 three-course lunch and complimentary sparkling morning punch with any breakfast entree; and a special two-course, modern Italian brunch is being offered at Lincoln Ristorante (pictured below left) for $35. (For a complete list of participating restaurants, please see below.)

The Lincoln Square BID is also excited to bring back Lincoln Square Crew Cuts, designed to offer speedy and affordable dining/take-out options for the busy crews working on Fashion Week events. Discounts, such as 10% off breakfast, lunch and dinner, is being offered at 18 eateries in the Lincoln Square area, including Lincoln Square mainstays Alan’s Market Place, Breadsoul and Lincoln Cafés, Melissa's Gourmet Deli, ’wichcraft, Old John’s Luncheonette, P.J. Clarke’s at Lincoln Square and others from January17 through February 25, 2013. 

This is the fourth year and sixth season the Lincoln Square BID is supporting the event. The non-profit business improvement district also promotes the area’s diverse business, educational opportunities, and cultural offerings through annual events such as the annual Winter’s Eve celebration, which is Gotham's largest holiday festival; Summer Concert Series at Richard Tucker Park; Tourist Information Ambassador Program, among others.  Lincoln Square BID’s neighborhood area runs from Columbus Circle to 70th Street between Amsterdam and Central Park West.
