In honor of Winter Restaurant Week 2022, David Burke Tavern, which has been closed except for private events since September, will reopen to the public on January 18 with a $59 prix fixe three-course Restaurant Week Menu. It stands out among many Restaurant Week offerings because of the number of dish choices in each category – seven appetizers, seven entrees and four desserts – and presents a bonus deal on five side dishes at $8 each and $21 for three, as opposed to the regular $12 each and $29 for the trio.
As the co-chair of the NYC & Company’s Culinary Committee, which organizes Restaurant Week, David Burke has let it be known that it is particularly important his flagship restaurant be open for its latest edition. It is a program he has enthusiastically participated in since its 1992 inception.
The private event only model for David Burke Tavern was prompted by the labor shortage that has plagued the restaurant industry during the pandemic. The moved proved prescient given solid private event bookings through the holiday season, which held up despite the Omicron surge.
Burke says he is hopeful the great values Restaurant Week offers, will encourage the public to once again embrace dining out. In addition to the Restaurant Week menu, available through February 13, David Burke Tavern will present guests with happy hour, bar and regular a la carte menu options upon reopening for service Tuesday through Saturday from 4 to 9. P.m.
David Burke Tavern is located at 135 E. 62nd St, New York NY (212) 988-2021.
