THE DISH

The Worth Avenue Association's “Worth the Drive” promotion officially ends Aug. 15, but participating restaurants say they plan to independently continue the promo's lunch deal.

That means that after Aug. 15, midday dining-out enthusiasts on the island can still score two-course lunches for $20.19, among other things.
