In the midst of the drudgery of winter’s present comes a beacon of light. OK, the other beacon of light (besides Fashion Week of near future) known as NYC Winter Restaurant Week! If you happen to have a taste for the lavishly decadent and an even bigger taste for enjoying it on an Applebee’s budget, then Restaurant Week is for you, folks. For just $24-$35, the sky will be the limit (or at least a three-course meal limit) at such hotspots as Butter and Mesa Grill. Whether you’re a native New Yorker or just happen to be in town from January 22- February 2, there’s something for everyone to soften the frostbite of winter’s chill. So, dig in and dish about the fabulous food that you’re going to (re)discover.
