Calling all adventurous eaters: Long Island Restaurant Week is back!
The spring edition of the eight-day tri-annual promotion now offers four prix-fixe options: a $20 two course lunch; a $25 three-course dinner menu, a $35 three-course dinner menu, or a $42 three-course dinner prix fixe.
Dozens of participating restaurants across Nassau and Suffolk counties may offer one, two or all of these options throughout the promotion, which runs from Sunday, April 25 to Sunday, May 2. The deal is available all day, every day, except Saturdays after 7 p.m. This year, due to the pandemic, takeout may also an option at some locations.
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 October and January.
