Editor’s note: NYC Restaurant Week has been extended through Feb. 28, 2021.
New York City Restaurant Week may look different this year, but the city’s eateries need our support now more than ever.
In 2021, Restaurant Week becomes Restaurant Week To Go, with takeout and delivery options at over 500 New York City restaurants from January 25 through January 31. Each restaurant will have a lunch and dinner meal option for $20.21.
But the deal gets even sweeter if you choose to pay with a Mastercard. You’ll receive a $10 statement credit for each transaction of $20.21 or greater, up to $100 back. That means you can score a takeout meal for about $10 (and change) from a variety of top restaurants across the city, up to 10 times.

To enjoy this tasty deal, you first have to pre-register your Mastercard. Simply enter your name, card information and check a few boxes. Once you’ve registered your card, browse through the restaurant selections and place your pickup or delivery order through the individual restaurant’s website, Seamless, Grubhub or Tock.
Make sure to pay with the same Mastercard you pre-registered with and the statement credit should kick in within five days of the purchase.
Similar to previous Restaurant Week offers, each establishment has a specific menu for the $20.21 deal. But with over 500 spots to choose from, you have no shortage of options.
If you’re like us, you know that this deal can get you more than just a $10 Mastercard statement. For instance, the Citi Premier® Card earns 3x ThankYou points per $1 at restaurants and is offering a sign-up offer of 60,000 ThankYou Rewards points (worth $1,020 based on TPG valuation) after spending $4,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening.
The recently introduced Chase Freedom Flex is another great Mastercard option, with no annual fee and 3x earnings at restaurants. Finally, you can also earn 4% cash back on dining purchases with the Capital One Savor Cash Rewards Credit Card — also a Mastercard. The card has a $95 annual fee. The information for the Capital One Savor Cash Rewards Credit Card has been collected independently by The Points Guy. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.
