Long Island Restaurant Week
As the weather cools, restaurants offer bargains to lure diners from the warmth of hearth and home. Long Island Restaurant Week will begin Sunday and continue through Nov. 9, with more than 165 restaurants offering prix fixe, three-course menus for $27.95.
Participating South Fork eateries are 1770 House and the Living Room at c/o the Maidstone in East Hampton, Almond and Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton, and the Cuddy and Page at 63 Main in Sag Harbor.
Guild Hall will present two new exhibitions, “Mary Ellen Bartley: Leaning Above the Page” and “New Additions to the Guild Hall Museum Permanent Collection, 2010-2014,” from Saturday through Jan. 4. An opening reception will be held Saturday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The Hamptons International Film Festival announced their annual awards Monday morning at the East Hampton Presbyterian Church.
The festival’s Audience Awards went to Stephen Frears’s “Philomena,” a drama starring Dame Judi Dench, and “Desert Runners,” Jennifer Steinman’s documentary about the 4 Deserts Race Series of 150-mile ultramarathons. Irene Taylor Brodsky’s “One Last Hug (…And a Few Smooches): Three Days at Grief Camp” won the Audience Award for Best Short.
Filmed in Bellport over a period of 18 days for $700,000, "The Maid's Room" has the look of an expensive Hollywood production. “We did everything we could to make a local film, but not a small film,” says Michael Walker, its director.
