A great thing about living in New York, as opposed to other places, is that other places don’t have oodles of great Italian food. You trip on the sidewalk in the right neighborhood around here and you’re liable to fall into a delicious plate of pasta or an eggplant parm sandwich. The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce doesn’t want you discovering Brooklyn’s Italian food by injury though, so starting Wednesday October 8 and running through Wednesday, October 15, they’re hosting Italian Restaurant Week. That means cheap lunches and dinners for you, and new customers for Italian restaurants. Everyone wins!

Italian Restaurant Week means that you have a week to eat as many Italian restaurant prix fixe meals as you can, at participating restaurants in Brooklyn. The deals are either $15/$20 lunches, $25/$30 dinners or 15% off you bill, depending on what the restaurant chooses. Some of them will even have a special they’re offering because they’re members of the Chamber of Commerce.

So, you’ve got places like Vesuvio Restaurant (7305 3rd Avenue, Bay Ridge) and Michelin-approved Baci & Abracci (204 Grand Street, Williamsburg) doing the $15/$25 lunch and dinner deals, and you’ve got Da Nonna Rosa (140 7th Avenue, Park Slope) and La Sorrentina (6522 11th Avenue, Dyker Heights) doing the $20/$30 lunch and dinner deals. Those are just a handful of the many restaurants scattered around Brooklyn, so make sure you’re light on groceries this week so that you just have to keep going out to eat.
