LI preps for spring restaurant week
How about one that is more than 100 miles long?
It's the annual Long Island Spring Restaurant Week, which returns for an eight-day run April 22-29. From Sunday to Sunday, participating restaurants will offer a three-course prix fixe dinner for $24.95 per person all night, except Saturday when it will be offered only until 7 p.m.
Since 2006, Long Island Restaurant Week was an annual November promotion until the first spring week was added last year.
The campaigns span the region's 118 miles from Garden City in Nassau County to Montauk in Suffolk County. There are nearly 250 participants each fall and more than 160 in the spring.
The first Long Island Restaurant Week in 2006 derived from the then five-year-old Hamptons Restaurant Week and its precursor, New York Restaurant Week. The campaign is presented by Long Island Restaurant & Hospitality Group.
You can search for participating restaurants online.
