Did you know that, one of my favorites, Long Island Restaurant Week is back again! Hello all my foodie and foodie lite people, this is your week to enjoy! April 25-May 2 is this time and all over Nassau and Suffolk counties is the place. LI Restaurant Week takes place three times per year and runs 8 days per round.
The campaigns, which span across the region’s 118-miles from Garden City to Montauk, boast nearly 250 participants each fall and more than 160 during the winter. Check anywhere on the map of Long Island, and you’re likely to find a great place to enjoy.
As always, Restaurant Week remains the best time to support local businesses, try new restaurants and savor old favorites. It’s a time to get out there and enjoy all the great food and experiences our great restaurants have to offer at a discounted price. There’s really no better time to check out some of these restaurants and I always try to take advantage of this great promotion!
Long Island Restaurant Week Details
Are you not sure what Long Island Restaurant Week is about or how it works?
Restaurants participating in the current round of Long Island Restaurant Week are offering four prix fixe options for you to enjoy! Restaurants may offer a $20 two course lunch prix fixe. They also may offer a $25, $35 or $42 three course dinner prix fixe. Each location differs, with some offering one option alone, some a combination of prix fixes and some all options.
Dozens of participating restaurants across Nassau and Suffolk counties offering the deal make it available all day, every day, except Saturdays after 7 p.m. Restaurants offering the $20 two course lunch prix fixe must offer it every day they are open during Restaurant Week during lunch hours. This year, a crazy year for us all, takeout may also an option at some locations.
Gratuity is not included but a 20% tip is recommended for friendly waitstaff that work hard throughout the week for this event.
Coffee, tea, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages are not included in the prix fixe special. The promotion includes appetizer, dessert, and entrée.
Participating restaurants are required to offer at least three choices of appetizers, main courses and deserts on their prix-fixe menus.
