The tri-annual and award-winning Long Island Restaurant Week kicks-off its Winter 2018 campaign on Sunday, January 21st for eight days, ending on Sunday, January 28th. Participating restaurants will offer a three-course prix fixe for $28.95 all night, every night they are open except Saturday when the menu may only be offered until 7 p.m.
Restaurants – spanning Long Island’s 118 miles – will each serve a unique $28.95 menu with a minimum choice of three appetizers, three entrées and three desserts. A full participant list is available at www.longislandrestaurantweek.com.
Long Island Restaurant Week is a win-win for participants and consumers. Much of the island’s population is provided the opportunity to save money while dining and sampling restaurants they might not otherwise try. For restaurateurs, this media-able, value-pricing event delivers a surge in business, a return on investment and community goodwill with the chance to win over new and returning patrons with a positive dining experience.
“It is expected that the campaign this fall will garner more than 100 participants,” said Steve Haweeli, President of Long Island Restaurant & Hospitality Group – the business-to-consumer division of WordHampton Public Relations. “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.”
Long Island Restaurant Week was designed to garner positive publicity and additional business during a traditionally sluggish period of business for restaurants. Due to popular customer and restaurateur demand, the spring edition of this popular island-wide autumn promotion was launched in 2011 and most recently, a winter edition, early in 2017.
