YONKERS, N.Y. – Yonkers residents who prefer their restaurant meals with a dash of international flavor will soon be in luck.

Nearly a dozen eateries are prepping for the Yonkers Downtown Business Improvement District's Second Annual International Restaurant Week. From Feb. 3 to 10, diners can grab a discounted bite with 20 percent off lunch and 25 percent off dinner specials.

“The first annual Yonkers Downtown BID International Restaurant Week was a huge success and we’re thrilled to continue a growing tradition in the Downtown,” said Ken Dearden, chair of Yonkers Downtown BID. “Whether you’re looking for a fun family night out or a romantic date night, International Restaurant Week will offer something for everyone to enjoy – at great prices.”

Foodies can choose among nine restaurants, with options ranging from Italian cuisine to Mexican, Cuban to Japanese.

The dining event follows a month that is typically slow for restaurants, Dearden said. The BID hopes Restaurant Week can give them a boost by drawing back old customers and bringing new ones in.

“Holding a special Restaurant Week not only entices residents from across Westchester and the region, but it gives a chance to showcase our unique dining spots and introduce them to people who haven’t discovered them,” he said.

The nine eateries to be featured include:

  • Dolphin Restaurant
  • La Bella Havana
  • Giovanni’s IV
  • Guapo Cocina Mexicana
  • Khangri
  • Nawab Restaurant
  • Tyrone House
  • X2O Xaviars on the Hudson
  • Zuppa Restaurant & Lounge

To receive the discount, diners must bring a voucher that can be printed from Yonkers Restaurant Week's website .

Reservations must be made by phone, and Yonkers International Restaurant Week must be mentioned. Prices do not include alcoholic beverages, gratuities and taxes.
