Long Island Restaurant Week returns with $29.95 prix fixe menus

Small Batch

There is no better time to check out new places to eat than during Long Island Restaurant Week. Now in its fourth year, the eight-day culinary event returns Sunday, Jan. 26 through Sunday, Feb. 2.

Dozen of participating restaurants from all across Long Island are offering a three-course prix fixe menu for $29.95 all night, every night except Saturday, when the menu may only be offering until 7 p.m. Each menu features a minimum choice of three appetizers, three entrees and three desserts.

Long Island Restaurant Week was designed to garner publicity and additional business during a traditionally sluggish period of business. Due to popular customer and restaurateur demand, the spring edition of this island-wide autumn promotion was launched in 2011 with a 168-participant roster. The winter version aims to achieve similar levels of success during the January and February’s restaurant doldrums.

“Winter Restaurant Week is designed to help customers combat ‘cabin fever’ and bring excitement and revenue to our restaurant participants,” said Steve Haweeli, president of Long Island Restaurant and Marketing Hospitality Group, which is the business-to-consumer promotions division of WordHampton Public Relations. “With more than 2.8 million residents and 1,000 restaurants with varied cuisines, concepts and price points, Long Island Restaurant Week remains a win-win for Long Islanders and Long Island restaurants.”
