The annual Sunnyside Restaurant Week will kick off its fifth year in October, where diners from all over can score three-course dinners for $25 from a host of neighborhood restaurants.

The week-long event will begin on Oct. 1 and run through Oct. 7, where 29 restaurants including Ariyoshi, Dazies, de Mole, and Turkish Grill, will offer 3-course dinner menus, while others have created a special lunch menu. In all, restaurants serving a variety of cuisines, including Peruvian, Japanese, Italian, Tibetan, and Irish will be represented.

Diners who eat out three times during Sunnyside Restaurant Week will be entered to win dinner for four through a $250 gift certificate by collecting three stickers on the Sunnyside Restaurant week postcard. The cards can be obtained at all participating restaurants, and can be returned with the three stickers to a participating restaurant where one will be chosen at random from all.

Details on the opening night reception have yet to be released.

The restaurant week is presented by the Sunnyside Shines Business Improvement District and aims to showcase Sunnyside as an ideal dining destination for all New Yorkers.

“Sunnyside Restaurant Week is a great opportunity for everyone,” says Jaime-Faye Bean, executive director of Sunnyside Shines. “It makes for a great date night for our local residents, but we also want New Yorkers from outside the neighborhood and even visitors to the City to come discover on of the City’s best neighborhoods while having a delicious and memorable meal.”

But they are all mediocre, no standout restaurant in this area. All decent, nothing to brag about. Just like the rest of this drab neighborhood.

I think Sunnyside has a lot of good places to eat, what a variety. Irish, Italian, Polish, Greek, Phillipino, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, Spanish , Peruvian, just to name a few. Restaurant week is a fantastic way to get out and about and learn what your community has to offer. Thank you

Why don’t they just call it Italian restaurant week. Hey, my parents were born in Italy or one of those places!


I go out to eat in Sunnyside a lot and have been to many of the places participating in restaurant week. I never spend $25 on my meal. It’s just not that expensive here. Especially at a place like Jack’s.

these pretzels are makin me thirsty!

Turkish, Japanese, Romanian, Peruvian, Italian, Irish, Ugandan,… what about American!? I shall eat my $25 meal at each one of these establishments but I will have one knee on the ground in protest!!


If you don’t even count Irish or Italian as American, then maybe are you looking for native american food?


literally no place in nyc is ideal to dine. the view is atrocious at best. maybe if there are restaurants at the top of 100 floor towers in manhattan, so i dont have to see the city…that would be ok.


It CAN be if you go to the right place!!! Try the new sidetracks or the new french place Bliss 46 both amazing!!!!
