With Summer Restaurant Week under way, there are a plethora of options for money savvy New Yorkers looking to be wined and dined at some of Manhattan’s finest; all while being able to save a few bucks on the side for those increasing subway fares. Aside from the list of bi-annual restaurant specials that we have come to appreciate, there’s a deal not found on the beaten path that is highly worth mentioning.
Lusso, one of Soho’s Italian cuisine newcomers, is currently offering $3 glasses of sangria every night weekly as well as 50% off all bottles of wine every Wednesday through the month of July (and hopefully continuing assuming it’s bringing in more bodies through the door). *Keep yourself posted on other deals the Italian eatery is offering via their Facebook page… last month they offered half off your tables entire tab!
Cha Cha’s, a haven drinks named after the likes of Rhea Perlman, Danny DeVito, and Tony Danza, is making it easy for you if you’re hurting for work as much as, well, most of the actors name-checked on its drinks list. A handwritten note on the door says: “Recession Special. Any unemployed is subject to take 20 percent off. Unemployed card has to be shown.” Also, during its 3 p.m. till 7 p.m. happy hour, cocktails such as the Leo DiCaprio Frozen Titanic are just five bucks.
You can sink your sobriety just like the ship.
