During the fall, Long Island eateries take part in Restaurant Week, a week in which patrons are offered a $24.95 price fixe menu at a smattering of local joints.
Now, by the demand of restaurant chefs, Long Island will be able to enjoy restaurant week as they kick off an inaugural spring promotions week.
From April 3 to April 10, restaurants all around Long Island will offer the price fixe menu available for diners. The $24.95 menu will include a choice of three appetizers, three main courses and three desserts.
“Everyone loves a deal,” said Steve Haweeli, president of WordHamption Public Relations, which organizes Restaurant Week. “With Restaurant Week, people go out two or three times and it doesn’t hurt the pocketbook as much as it wood regularly,” he said.
Haweeli told Patch that Restaurant Week is instrumental to community commerce because it allows people to try a new, local place they have been meaning to try or head out on the town to an eatery that is usually reserved for special occasions.
Scott Bradley, owner and chef at in Wantagh, has participated in every one since the Bistro opened. In fact, Bradley is known to extend his Restaurant Week specials in order to drive more business to his place and give his regular customers a deal.
