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.
