Winter Long Island Restaurant Week kicks off today in an event that will continue for eight days.
Restaurants across Suffolk and Nassau counties will participate, including five 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, Jan. 30.
Legends, New Suffolk ($42)
Legends is a regular for Long Island Restaurant Week and it’s also a top choice among the participating North Fork restaurants. Start your meal off with Oysters Romanoff before moving on to the surf and turf skirt steak and shrimp scampi. Finish up with tiramisu. Fifteen percent off wine bottles too!
Cooperage Inn, Baiting Hollow ($35)
The Cooperage Inn is another 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 ($35)
Farm Country Kitchen, easily one of the best restaurants on the North Fork with an underrated view of the Peconic River, is also participating. As of Friday afternoon, their restaurant week menu was not available online.
On the Docks, Aquebogue ($35)
Formerly Phil’s Waterfront, On the Docks is a great spot for dining on a creek. We recommend the ahi tuna starter, port braised lamb shank and bananas foster bread pudding for dessert.
Bistro 72, Riverhead ($20/$35)
This is the only North Fork spot participating in the $20 lunch option, so we’ll point you to that menu. Start off with the caesar salad, followed by the crab cake and a scoop of ice cream for dessert.
