Long Island Restaurant Week

Long Island Restaurant week took place from November 1st untill November 8th.¬† During that week some of Long Island’s most exclusive¬† restaurants served entrees and other menu items at a discounted price that typically did not exceed $25 for a three course prix fixe meal. The event is a great opportunity for those who might otherwise not be able to afford to dine at these restaurants to experience them– and it fits a Stony Brook University students budget.
