Taste of Times Square Is On

Taste of Times Square Is On

From October 23–30, the Taste of Times Square is on. Times Square’s annual celebration of our neighborhood’s incredible restaurants, in all their flavor and variety. While COVID-19 paused our yearly blocks-long outdoor food and musical festival, we’re still celebrating and promoting local businesses — this time with a special three course prix fixe menu for $35* at participating restaurants.

Support twenty of Times Square’s best restaurants, eat great food, and dine in confidence knowing that they are taking all appropriate measures to protect the health and safety of patrons and staff. If you dine in the district between 5:30pm and 7:00pm, you might even catch a performance by the Hell’s Kitchen Happiness Krewe.

Dining indoors or outdoors? We encourage you to make reservations directly with the restaurants, but walk-ins will also be accommodated. This promotion is also offered for takeout and delivery from the applicable participating restaurants. Make sure to ask your server or the person talking your order for the Taste of Times Square prix fixe menu.

To continue the tradition of live music at Taste, we have partnered with the Hell’s Kitchen Happiness Krewe, which uses artistic and musical performances to spread joy through the neighborhood and drive revenue to restaurants and other small businesses. They engage the community in song, dance, and visual art, all while wearing masks and remaining socially distanced. These performances will pop up throughout the week in front of participating restaurants and will continue to employ artists and musicians who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.  

These surprise performances will happen each night between 5:30pm and 7:00pm throughout the district.
