Long Island Restaurant Week kicks off this weekend at dozens of restaurants across Nassau and Suffolk counties.
The $27.95 prix fixe deals run from Sunday, Oct. 30, to Sunday, Nov. 6 — except Saturday, when some restaurants only offer the deal until 7 p.m.
Don’t know where to dine this time? Here are four suggestions to try on the East End.
2218 Sound Ave., Calverton (631) 727-8994
Cooperage Inn is the type of place locals love to have in their backyard. The cozy decor and hearty food make it a great spot for fall.
Touch of Venice
28350 Main Road, Cutchogue (631) 298-5851
If you’re in the mood for some pasta and a rich plum tomato sauce, a visit to Cutchogue’s Touch of Venice is in order. Known for its wine list along with its food, the Main Road eatery has a loyal following — and for good reason.

Farm Country Kitchen
513 W. Main Street, Riverhead (631) 369-6311
One of Long Island’s best hidden gems, Farm Country Kitchen is a favorite lunch spot for municipal employees, attorneys and court staffers working in Riverhead. But the West Main Street eatery is also an enticing dinner option.
Restaurant Week appetizers include a portobello mushroom stuffed with sun-dried tomato hummus and topped with spinach, artichokes, feta and cilantro pesto, according to an online menu. Entrée options include Cajun-seared salmon over baby arugula with strawberries, blackberries, crumbled goat cheese, almonds, carrots, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes.
43 Canoe Place Road, Hampton Bays (631) 594-3868
Dining at Cowfish entails lovely views of the Shinnecock Canal and chef David Hersh’s delicious New Orleans-inspired cuisine. Be sure to order a rum punch, one of the eatery’s signature drinks.
Restaurant Week dinner options include favorites like the ahi tuna and our personal favorite, NOLA shrimp.
