NYC's Restaurant Week

T he top three picks on the Luxury Report list this year were the esteemed Le Cirque, the delicious STK Midtown, and the famed Russian Tea Room. roughout the city, countless restaurants wowed foodies with their culinary skills. ese three restaurants created menus featuring not only new dishes, but their most famous recipes as well.
