Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is returning to New York City and restaurants around Lincoln Square will be celebrating with some swank meal deals.
The biannual Fashion Week runs this fall from Thursday, September 5 - Thursday, September 12 and the Upper West Side's most popular restaurants are offering special meals. A Voce, Atlantic Grill, Bar Boulud, Boulud Sud, Gabriel's, Lincoln Ristorante, Loi, Nougatine at Jean-Georges, Nick & Toni's Café, Porter House New York, Rosa Mexicano, The Smith, and newcomer Asiate at Mandarin Oriental, New York are offering a three-course prix-fixe lunches for fashion-savvy visitors. (Best of all, no tickets to the Fashion Week events are necessary to get the special meals.)
"The Lincoln Square area has been the host to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for four years and each season it's exciting to see more and more businesses participate in the fashion buzz attracting insiders and local consumers alike," says Jarrad Clark, Global Creative Director, IMG Fashion Events and Properties. "Every year over $860 million is contributed to the city of New York by Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week visitors. $40 million of that stays right here in the Upper West Side, due in large part to businesses that welcome the Event and its attendees with open arms, such as those who participate in Fashion Plate Prix Fixe."
This is the fourth year and seventh season the Lincoln Square BID is supporting the event. (For the record, Lincoln Square BID's neighborhood area runs from Columbus Circle to 70th Street between Amsterdam and Central Park West.)
Fashion Plate Prix Fixe is open to the public for lunch, dinner and brunches during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Close to 30 restaurants are offering menu options, for example: Upper West Side staple Rosa Mexicano is featuring a $25 Prix Fixe lunch special as well a three-course dinner for $38; 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 weekend brunch is being offered at Lincoln Ristorante for $35.
