'Mad Men' Dining Week Set for NYC: Nostalgic Lunches for $19.69
In partnership with AMC and NYC's tourism organization, '21' Club, Barbetta, Brasserie, Delmonico's, Le Cirque, P.J. Clarke's and more will offer special '60s-inspired meals in late March.
New York City's final farewell to Mad Men just got a whole lot tastier.
AMC and NYC & Company (New York City’s official marketing, tourism and partnership organization) have partnered to present Mad Men Dining Week, a lunchtime dining promotion spanning March 23-29.
Thirty-four restaurants — including 1960s mainstays '21' Club, Barbetta, Brasserie, Delmonico's, El Parador Café, Le Cirque and P.J. Clarke's — will honor the series' final season by offering a show-inspired, two-course prix-fixe menu (an appetizer and entree, or entree and dessert) or two drinks for the era-appropriate price of $19.69, excluding gratuities and taxes.
"The men and women of Madison Avenue inspired Matthew Weiner’s story and we couldn't imagine a better way to celebrate than by eating, drinking and raising a glass together in their honor," said AMC president Charlie Collier in a statement on Monday.
Mad Men Dining Week joins the city-wide salute to Mad Men leading up to the series finale, which also includes multiple exhibitions, screenings and panel discussions at several New York City cultural institutions, including the Museum of the Moving Image, Film Society of Lincoln Center, The New York Public Library, BAMcinématek, The 92nd Street Y and the Museum of Jewish Heritage.
"The critically acclaimed series highlights the allure, elegance and sophistication of 1960s New York City,” said Fred Dixon, president and CEO of NYC & Company. “Whether New Yorkers and visitors want to dine like Don Draper, take a look at sets from the series, or walk down memory lane with the series creator and stars, we encourage New Yorkers and visitors to celebrate the final season in the city where it takes place."
