A number of East End eateries are offering prix fixe deals this week as part of Long Island Restaurant Week, which continues through Sunday. On the South Fork, participating restaurants include Page at 63 Main, Wolffer Kitchen, and Lulu Kitchen and Bar in Sag Harbor, Le Charlot in Southampton, and Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton. They are offering a $28.95 three-course meal, with supplemental charges for certain dishes, all night tonight, tomorrow, and Sunday and until 6:30 on Saturday. 

Those willing to venture farther afield for the deal will find it at restaurants in Riverhead, Hampton Bays, and on the North Fork, including such spots as the well-reviewed North Fork Table and Inn in Southold and the Halyard at the Sound View motel in Greenport, overlooking the Long Island Sound. Reservations are a must and can be made directly through the restaurants or at opentable.com.

The Asian specialty menu returns to the Highway Restaurant and Bar in East Hampton tonight. The three-course prix fixe menu is $39 per person and features a green mango and papaya salad, a chicken and cashew nuts entree, and coconut sorbet for dessert. A la carte options include a main course of beef short rib with house-made kimchi and shareable dishes like crispy Long Island duck with hoisin sauce and moo shu pancakes.
