2. French Restaurant Week

From July 4th to the 17th, New York City will be host to French Restaurant Week.

This year, Action Against Hunger International (ACF) is the official sponsor of French Restaurant Week, which aims to bring hunger relief to communities around the world. Participating restaurants include Jules Bistro, GLOO, Brasserie 8 1/2 and La Sirene. Reserve your spot at restaurants online on OpenTable.
