New York – March 9, 2015 – In celebration of the final seven episodes of Mad Men (beginning Sunday, April 5 at 10:00PM ET/PT), AMC and NYC & Company, New York City’s official marketing, tourism and partnership organization, have partnered to present Mad Men Dining Week. Famed restaurants, including 1960s mainstays ’21’ Club, Barbetta, Brasserie, Delmonico’s, El Parador Café, Le Cirque and P.J. Clarke’s will offer guests a rare and weeklong glimpse into New York City’s culinary world as it was almost a half-century ago.
From March 23 to 29, 34 New York City restaurants will participate in Mad Men Dining Week, a lunchtime dining promotion. For the era-appropriate price of $19.69 (excluding gratuities and taxes), diners can choose from a two-course prix-fixe menu (an appetizer and entrée or entrée and dessert), or two drinks, all inspired by popular food and drink from the 1960s. Starting today, diners can book their reservations on nycgo.com/madmendiningweek. All reservations are powered through OpenTable, the exclusive online reservation partner.
“Dialogue about Mad Men has revolved around so many different topics from design and fashion to food and drink, to name just a few. So, on the heels of announcing several upcoming events focusing on the cultural impact of this series, AMC is thrilled to share this very special moment in television history by bringing Mad Men Dining Week to the fans,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “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.”
“We are pleased to partner with AMC as the final season of Mad Men approaches. 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.”
As previously announced, Mad Men will be honored through multiple exhibitions, screenings, events and panel discussions to be held 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, all leading up to the series’ finale.
