Hamptons Restaurant Week kicked off Sunday, April 3, at two dozen restaurants across the North and South forks.
The $27.95 prix fixe deals run from Sunday, April 3, to Sunday, April 10 — except Saturday, when some restaurants offer the deal only until 7 p.m.
And although many of the eateries are sure to please, if you are like most folks you’ll only be able to make it out one or two nights during the week.
If we were only able to visit three East End spots for restaurant week, the following would be our choices. Click here to see a full list of participating eateries.
Be sure to call for reservations as seatings book fast.
136 Front St., Greenport
With its minimalist decor, inventive small plates and ample local wine options, noah’s is perenially one of our go-to spots for a night out in Greenport Village.
Taking a glance at Noah’s restaurant week menu, there is a lot to like. In particular the crispy buffalo cauliflower and pan roasted Arctic char is catching our eye. A bonus is that the menu appears to feature several vegetarian options like a local beet risotto.
2. La Plage, Wading River
131 Creek Rd., Wading River
La Plage has long been a special occasion dining spot for us. With a secluded location and views of the Long Island Sound, it’s no wonder the New York Times once called it the most romantic restaurant on Long Island. And a prix-fixe menu is a great way to enjoy the experience without the full price tag.
The wine list is long and the cocktails are fun and tasty. A sample Restaurant Week menu posted online includes entrées like hazelnut crusted mahi-mahi and grilled chicken breast.
3. Wölffer Kitchen
29 Main St., Sag Harbor
The East End’s only winery-owned restaurant has been on our list of must-try spots since we featured it in the winter edition of the Long Island Wine Press.
With positive reviews from Newsday and The New York Times, it certainly seems like it’d be worth the two ferry rides it takes to get there from the North Fork.
And while we were there, we’d definitely see about ordering a glass of Summer in a Bottle.
