The time to give your kitchen the night off has come.
From Sunday, April 8 through Sunday, April 15, a 3-course prix fixe menu will be offered at several local eateries for just $28.95 as part of East End Restaurant Week
- presented by WordHampton Public Relations' Long Island Restaurant & Marketing Hospitality Group, which will also feature exclusive offers at lodging properties.
"Hamptons restaurant week
allows customers who wouldn't necessarily visit the restaurant to come and experience what we do and how we do it, year round," said Mark Smith
, Owner, Nick & Toni's
In the Hamptons, participating restaurants include 1 North Steakhouse
in Hampton Bays, Sunday's on the Bay Restaurant in Hampton Bays, Cowfish

in East Hampton.
"Restaurant Week is always a very busy week at The 1770 House," noted The 1770 House General Manager Carol Covell. "We see new customers who welcome the occasion to try our delicious food and friendly service. We see loyal guests who welcome another reason to return and make it a night out with friends."
In addition to attracting new faces, some East End eateries use the event to introduce exciting new options. "Here at Union Cantina we aim to please, participating in Restaurant Week is a great way for our guests to have a new dining experience for an amazing price, we're thrilled to be participating again!" Ian Duke
, owner of Union Cantina, added. "In fact we love it so much, we'll be offering it for two
weeks instead of one; giving guests a wonderful opportunity to not only try out Union Cantina at a great price, but to also debut some new
food and beverage selections from our coming spring/summer menu."

"Even though Lulu is very much a convivial and approachable Mediterranean bistro, restaurants in the Hamptons can sometimes feel intimidating and first impressions misleading," said Steven Jauffrineau of Lulu Kitchen & Bar
. "Restaurant Week is a format that allows year-round restaurants such as Lulu to reveal its true identity to an ever-growing local community that personifies our core business."
Others who will be enticing diners with the incredible deal include Stone Creek Inn
in East Quogue, Trumpets On The Bay
in Eastport, La Plage Restaurant
