As the doldrums of February kick in and we all begin to forget our New Year’s resolutions, Bwog encourages you to skip the gym (not like you weren’t going to anyway, right?) and hustle instead to one of the over 250 restaurants participating in a time-honored New York culinary tradition, Restaurant Week. This year, the week of gastronomic revelry has been extended several weeks until February 27th. Now you have plenty of time to get your $24.07 lunches and $35 dinners for three-course prix-fixe meals at restaurants no college student could otherwise afford.

You can peruse a list of restaurants, menus and even recipes at NYC Go and make your reservations at their website or at Open Table. Take a field trip and try (if you dare!) the blowfish at BONDST, the pancetta-wrapped monkfish at i Trulli, and if you’ve made it this far into your Columbia career without making it to Queens, go to Water’s Edge and marvel at our lovely skyline. Stuff your faces well, temporary gourmands!
