ASIAN FOOD RESTAURANT WEEK
A quick sampling of New York City’s most celebrated restaurants certainly attests to this. At the LUCKYRICE Restaurant + Bar Week, enjoy specially-designed (and priced) tasting menus at participating restaurants selected by the LUCKYRICE Culinary Council. Both Asian (and not-so-Asian) Restaurants and bars across town will be showing their love for Asian-inspired dishes, ingredients and techniques as they create tasting menus inspired by the flavors of Asia.
- An opening night cocktail party at the swanky Bowery Hotel hosted by Top Chef Masters host Kelly Choi ($50 advance/$100 door)
