New Restaurant Openings and Other February Events in NYC

As January has drawn to a close, the month of February has arrived, right before the season of spring begins. It is an exciting time when New Yorkers get ready to celebrate spring occasions. Among these special events is Lunar New Year. For decades, New Yorkers have performed many festivities to ring in this holiday. Moreover, for decades, artists have invested their time to display their creative pieces to recognize Black History Month.

Not only are there events that locals and tourists alike can attend this month, but there are also some new, delicious restaurants opening in the Big Apple. However, it can be daunting to find out exactly which restaurants or events are happening in New York without the right guide. We have it all laid out for you below. Here is our guide to new restaurant openings and exciting events happening this month.
