The bi-annual and award-winning Long Island Restaurant Week (longislandrestaurantweek.com) kicks off its Fall 2013 campaign on Sunday, November 3 for eight days ending Sunday, November 11. Participating restaurants will offer a three-course prix fixe for $27.95 all night, every night they are open except Saturday when the menu will only be offered until 7 p.m.
Restaurants – spanning Long Island’s 118 miles – are signing up daily to participate. Each will serve its own unique $27.95 menu with a minimum choice of three appetizers, three entrées and three desserts. A full participant list will be available at longislandrestaurantweek.com/dine.php.
“It is expected that the campaign this fall will garner more than 250 participants,” said Steve Haweeli, President of Long Island Restaurant & Marketing Hospitality Group – the new business-to-consumer promotions division of WordHampton Public Relations. “With more than 2.8 million residents and 1,000 restaurants with varied cuisines, concepts and price points, it is no wonder why we started the highly anticipated Long Island Restaurant Week which continues to flourish.”
Last year’s fall 2012 campaign boasted 248 restaurant participants, 134 of which extended the promotion through Sunday, November 18 as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
