The tri-annual and award-winning Long Island Restaurant Week is ready to help fill the seats of Long Island restaurants. The fall promotion will take place from Sunday, November 6 to Sunday, November 13, and there are a number of prix fixe options.
Restaurants may offer a $22 two-course lunch, a $27 three-course dinner menu, a $37 three-course dinner menu, or a $44 three-course dinner prix fixe.
Each participant is required to offer three options per course (appetizer, entrée, and dessert) for dinner. The promotion runs Sunday to Sunday, except Saturday night when it only has to be offered until 7 PM. Many restaurants will be offering the promotion for takeout as well as for indoor and outdoor dining.
“As we finally move into more normal times post-COVID people are becoming more comfortable dining out and looking for an excuse to go out. Restaurant Week is a great opportunity to get out and try new restaurants that you may have never been to,” shared Nicole Castillo of Long Island Restaurant and Hospitality Group.
“Restaurant Weeks throughout the country have been successful for many years and Long Island is no different. The promotional week-long event has gained popularity year after year attracting new restaurants participating as well as bringing out more diners each promotion. The now tri-annual event creates a buzz around traditionally slower periods of the year; in the winter post-holidays, in the spring between warm weather getaways and summer barbecues, and in the fall between post-summer spending and pre-holiday saving,” continued Castillo.
In 2020, the promotion was expanded with the goal of supporting restaurants in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis and offering more options to diners with varying budgets. These changes included price adjustments, now offering a lunch option and three price points for the dinner prix fixe.
Participating restaurants on the East End include Saaz, R.AIRE at the Hampton Maid, Elaia Estiatorio, Southampton Publick House, Fauna, Calissa, Jean Georges at Topping Rose House, Cove Hollow Tavern, Anker, Legends, Cooperage Inn, The Dimon Estate, On The Docks, The Preston House, Bistro 72, and Farm Country Kitchen.
