Most of you foodies probably know that it's NYC Restaurant Week, which happens twice a year. And while most of the participating restaurants are in Manhattan, there are a couple of borough restaurants that take part too.
The one most relevant to us is Testaccio in LIC, which is running a special Restaurant Week menu prix-fixe for $24.07 lunch and a $35 dinner. While I don't think it's cheap, it's a great way to taste a bunch of things from the menu that you normally wouldn't be able to in one shot. Here's the special menu that's good til the end of this week.
Testaccio Restaurant Week Menu:
Endive salad with caramelized hazelnut shaved pecorino cheese and roasted artichoke vinaigrette
Chilled yellow tomato soup with arugula pesto and focaccia croutons
Grilled Italian sausage with brown sugar and balsamic beans and salad
Sauteed chicken straccetti with arugula, tomato and shaved grana padano
Assorted seafood skewer with peppers, cucumbers and tomato salad
Beef tortellini with imported ham in a creamy parmesan sauce
Orange honey creme caramel
Nutella mousse with fresh berries
