The prix fixe deal will only be offered until 7 p.m. on Saturday, sponsors say.

Long Island Restaurant Week started in 2006 and is derived from Hamptons Restaurant Week, which started in 2002. Both are sponsored by the Long Island Restaurant and Hospitality Group, which is a division of WordHampton Public Relations in East Hampton.

It’s a bi-annual event designed to garner business and positive publicity for the area’s restaurants, the group says. It was originally just a fall event, but in 2011, it added a spring session as well.

“Long Island Restaurant Week is a win-win for participants and consumers,” the group says on its website. “Much of the island’s population is provided the opportunity to save money while dining and sample restaurants they might not otherwise try.”

Sponsors say that since this a highly anticipated event, it is best to make a reservation as early as possible as dining rooms will be booked.
