Spring Long Island Restaurant Week kicked off Sunday in an event that will continue for eight days.
Restaurants across Suffolk and Nassau counties will participate, including seven on the North Fork.
Three-course prix-fixe meals are once again being offered at three price points: $25, $35 and $42 with a $20 two-course lunch at some locations.
Here’s where you can participate here on the North Fork while Restaurant Week continues through Sunday, May 2.
A Lure, Southold ($42)
A Lure has one of the best outdoor dining setups on the entire East End. This choices at this seafood spot are all mouthwatering, but we have a go-to restaurant week combo there. Start off with a bowl of P.E.I. mussels, continue on to the macadamia coconut-crusted flounder and finish it all off with key lime pie.
A Mano, Mattituck ($35)
A Mano, one of the North Fork’s top Italian eateries, is a welcome choice for Long Island Restaurant Week. You can start your meal off with slowly simmered meatballs, followed by chicken picatta and tiramisu for dessert.
Cooperage Inn, Baiting Hollow ($35)
The Cooperage Inn is a Restaurant Week mainstay offering up a diverse menu of options. We like the overstuffed baked clams, chicken pot pie and capuccino mousse chocolate cake.
Farm Country Kitchen, Riverhead
Farm Country Kitchen, easily one of the best restaurants on the North Fork with an underrated view of the Peconic River, is also participating. The restaurant week menu was not yet available as of the posting of this article.
Jamesport Manor Inn, Jamesport
The Jamesport Manor Inn has an upscale setting in a historic manor, but it’s also very accessible. The Restaurant Week menu wasn’t yet available.
On the Docks, Aquebogue ($35)
Formerly Phil’s Waterfront, On the Docks is a great spot for dining on a creek. We recommend the loster bisque, capellini de mare with shrimp, scallops and clams in marinara and chocolate cake for dessert.
The Preston House and Hotel, Riverhead ($35)
A high quality Riverhead restaurant offering up three courses for $35, The Preston House is one of those Restaurant Week spots where you can really maximize your value — eating an upscale meal at a discount price in a beautiful setting. Start off with kimchi ramen, followed by black tea steamed cod and key lime cheesecake for dessert. You can also add on a wine tasting for $20 per person.
