Five Bronx restaurants are participating in this year’s NYC Restaurant Week. NYC Restaurant Week has returned from January 18th through February 13th, with hundreds of New York City restaurants offering special pre-fixe menus. While we’d love to see more Bronx restaurants participating, the week is still a great reminder to support your local Bronx restaurants- especially after the hit many faced since March of 2020.
The following Bronx restaurants are offering specials during NYC Restaurant Week:
Artie’s Steak & Seafood
Italian, Seafood, City Island
This classic surf ‘n’ turf spot isn’t retro—it has simply been serving up traditional Italian-accented seafood for nearly half a century. A peek at the menu reveals a boatload of seafood classics like scallops, Alaskan king crab legs, a fried fisherman’s platter and fried Little Neck clams, as well as a variety of steaks (filet mignon, sirloin, rib eye) and pasta dishes.
Puerto Rican, Mott Haven
Chocolate Cortés is a 4th generation, family-owned, Caribbean, bean-to-bar chocolate manufacturing company, originally established in the Dominican Republic in 1929. In 2013, the Cortés family opened Chocobar Cortés, an innovative gastronomic space where chocolate is the celebrated ingredient, in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. They recruited chocolatier patissier chef Ricardo de Obaldía, a young Latin chef renowned for his elaborate and imaginative chocolate creations, to design a menu in which every dish incorporates chocolate in some way, shape or form. This new outpost opened in late 2021 in Mott Haven, the Bronx.
Arthur Avenue Fiasco
Arthur Avenue Fiasco, Roberto Paciullo’s fifth restaurant (Zero Otto Nove and Roberto’s are among the others), pays homage to the classic Italian American dishes in the heart of the real Little Italy, the Bronx’s Arthur Avenue. Favorites on the menu include the house-made rigatoni (sautéed with broccoli rabe and sausage, and topped with toasted almond and spicy pecorino cheese) and the chicken francese (melt-in-your-mouth egg-battered chicken in lemon sauce, served with homemade penne pasta).
Ice House Cafe Italian Waterfront Restaurant
Italian, Throgs Neck
Overlooking the Throgs Neck Bridge, this family-owned spot is slammed during the summer months, and for good reason: the main courses are upscale (spinach and shrimp salad, chicken bruschetta, lobster bisque, baby lamb chops, Black Angus rib eyes) but the atmosphere is decidedly friendly. Make sure to leave room for their famous homemade napoleon.
French, Mexican, Mott Haven
The vision at Maisonetta (the name is a combination of “maison” and “casita,” the words for “house” in French and Spanish, respectively) is to provide a culinary experience that joins two cultures under one roof. Capturing the true essence of fine French dining and the gastronomy of Mexican flavors and traditions, Maisonetta is both unique and diverse.
