Calling all adventurous eaters: Long Island Restaurant Week is back!
The fall edition of the eight-day tri-annual promotion now offers three prix-fixe options: $20 two-course lunches, plus $25 or $35 three-course dinners, at hundreds of restaurants across Nassau and Suffolk counties from Sunday, October 18 through Sunday, October 25. The deal is available all day, every day, except Saturdays after 7 p.m.
Restaurant week has two goals: 1) Helping small businesses draw additional customers during a historically slow time of year, and 2) Enticing the public a chance to try new eateries that they normally wouldn’t.
Participating restaurants are required to offer at least three choices of appetizers, main courses and deserts on their prix-fixe menus. Restaurant cuisine styles to choose from include Italian, Latin, French, Mediterranean, Asian, BBQ, sushi bars, seafood eateries, and steak houses.
Reservations are recommended at those eateries that take them. The deal doesn’t include a tip. Organizers encourage participants to tip their servers at least 20 percent.
Additional LI restaurant weeks are held in January and April.
