In the summer, there’s no second-guessing an evening out to your favorite North Fork restaurant. But January’s frigid weather often swings the pendulum in the opposite direction — staying underneath a blanket sounds oh so tempting.
But at several North Fork restaurants there’s good reason to leave the nest. The reward for braving cold NoFo nights at these restaurants is satisfying meals, local vintages and craft cocktails made even better by the warmth of a fireplace.

We here at northforker look forward to Long Island Restaurant Week with the anticipation of a kid counting down until Christmas.
That’s because it’s a chance to support local businesses, save some money and experience something great.
