Are you in desperate need of a break from cooking? Are you ready to eat your way across the East End and maybe even Long Island? Well, from Sunday, October 29 through Sunday, November 5, you can do just that and it won't break the bank.
During Long Island Restaurant Week
, the award-winning tri-annual campaign spearheaded by Long Island Restaurant & Hospitality Group - the business-to-consumer division of WordHampton Public Relations - diners will find a three-course prix fixe for just $28.95 all night at participating eateries. The only exception is Saturday when the menu may only be offered until 7 p.m.
"It is expected that the campaign this fall will garner more than 100 participants," said Steve Haweeli
, President of Long Island Restaurant & Hospitality Group. "With more than 2.8 million residents and more than 1,000 restaurants with varied cuisines, concepts and price points, it's a fantastic way to explore the culinary landscape that Long Island has to offer."
