For eateries and diners alike, Long Island Restaurant Week is a fall favorite island-wide, especially on the East End — giving restaurants a boost in business while customers try menus that, sometimes, are outside their budgets during the on-season.

More than 120 participating restaurants across Long Island’s 118 miles will serve a three-course prix fixe menu for $29.95 — including a minimum of three appetizers, three entrées and three desserts — starting Sunday, November 4, and continuing every night through Sunday, November 11.

“It is expected that the campaign this fall will garner more than 160 participants,” according to Steve Haweeli, president of Long Island Restaurant & Marketing Hospitality Group, the 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.”

As of Monday, the East End’s participants included: Baron’s Cove, Lulu Kitchen and Bar, and Page at 63 Main in Sag Harbor; Jean Georges at Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton; The Clubhouse and The 1770 House in East Hampton; Le Charlot Southampton, Claude’s Restaurant and Shippy’s Pumpernickels Restaurant East in Southampton; Cowfish and RUMBA Inspired Island Cuisine & Rum Bar in Hampton Bays; Stone Creek Inn in East Quogue; The Sound Bistro, Stonewalls At The Woods and Bistro 72 in Riverhead; Legends in New Suffolk; La Plage Restaurant in Wading River; Jamesport Manor Inn in Jamesport; Cooperage Inn in Baiting Hollow; and aMano in Mattituck.

The prix fixe will be served all night, except Saturday, November 10, when the menu will stop at 7 p.m. For more information, call (631) 329-2111 or visit
