Foodies, get ready to eat well — and on the cheap — this summer. Later this month will see the long-awaited return of NYC Restaurant Week.

Between July 19 and Aug. 22, 2021, NYC Restaurant Week will return for in-person dining for the first time in 18 months. Restaurants across 75 neighborhoods in the city, offering more than 40 different types of cuisines will allow diners to opt for lunches or dinners priced at $21 or $39, depending on the restaurant.

Individual restaurants will be allowed to choose whether they want to participate for one week or all five weeks of the program. Prices will vary, depending on the restaurant's price point, but generally, lunch, brunch or dinner will include one entree and at least one side for either $21 or $39. Remember, too, that Restaurant Week offers are generally available for both on-site and takeout dining options.

Also as of this year, NYC Restaurant Week is offering a new Signature Dining Experience for $125, which includes three or more courses and "exclusive enhancements," which may vary depending on the restaurant.

Aside from the delicious meals on offer, best of all, perhaps, is that there are great savings opportunities. Mastercard cardholders can preregister for NYC Restaurant Week to receive a $10 statement credit on each transaction of $39 or more up to five times. In other words, Mastercard cardholders can save up to $50 for on-site meals during Restaurant Week.

Plus, Mastercard cardholders can also enter to win thousands of American Airlines AAdvantage miles. Each time they purchase an NYC Restaurant Week meal with their card by Aug. 15, they will be entered for a chance to win 200,000 AAdvantage miles.

Based on TPG's most recent valuations, 200,000 AAdvantage miles are worth $2,800 — that's a great sum that you could win just for eating some amazing food around NYC's restaurants.
