Odds are you can't walk a block around New York City without running into some form of Latin American cuisine. With that in mind, Latin Restaurant Weeks has launched its newest edition in the Big Apple, a perfect opportunity to enjoy the rich and diverse flavors that make the region's gastronomy stand out.

The event takes place from June 7 to June 21 in the New York area and aims to raise awareness among chefs, restaurant owners, catering businesses, cafes, bakeries, and local Latin culinary events, while highlighting all sorts of Latin flavors. As the event's site puts it:

During Latin Restaurant Weeks, participating restaurants, food trucks, and culinary businesses offer mouth-watering specials for you to enjoy. From delectable prix fixe menus to super sweet deals, it's a great opportunity for visitors and locals to try an old favorite or discover a new gem. Get ready to dig into the diversity of Latin American cuisine bite by bite and take what we like to call, "¡Buen Provecho!" in your city!

Latin Restaurant Weeks (LRW) was founded in 2019 by Karinn Chavarria and Warren Luckett in order to help lend a voice to the aspiring and existing Hispanic entrepreneurs and professionals of the culinary industry. It has already had editions in several cities across the U.S., including Miami, Atlanta, Chicago and the D.C. area.

More than 50 participants will present menus with special prices, encouraging residents and tourists to expand their palates.
