October 6, 2021 | What To Do
It’s that time of the year again! Fall 2021 Long Island Restaurant Week will take place between November 7th to November 14th. Participating restaurants must offer a three-course prix fixe menu for $25/$35/$42 all night, every night for that week (except Saturdays when it may only be offered until 7 pm).

Don Quijote Restaurant & Tequila Bar integrates dishes from all over Latin America to create a unique and versatile dining experience. With locations in Patchogue and Miller Place, this is the spot for lovers of Hispanic cuisine. The Chorizo Sancho appetizer is made with Colombian sausage sauteed in garlic sauce, mushrooms and red peppers served with toasted baguette. Other delectable menu items include the pulled chicken chimichangas, arroz con pollo, and ranchero burrito. Don Quijote’s refried beans and guac are also undefeated. For libation, the white sangria is a fruity revelation.

True Food Kitchen’s guiding mantra is that healthy food can also be crave-able. It also subscribes to the belief that naturally ripe fruits and vegetables provide the greatest flavor and nutrients. True Food’s iteration in Garden City has creative and seasonal options, such as butternut squash (in the form of soup, pizza, and risotto), a grilled chicken avocado wrap, and charred cauliflower (served with harissa tahini, Medjool date, dill, mint, and pistachio). Who knew healthy eating could be so delicious?

George Martin’s The Original was again selected this year by Newsday for their annual top 100 Long Island restaurants list. Year after year, the famed steakhouse remains wildly popular among carnivores. Of course, the GM marinated 12 oz. skirt steak and Gorgonzola-crusted New York shell steak are bonafide classics. But other, less-meaty, menu items are delish as well, such as the butternut squash ravioli and crunchy sesame tuna (with wonton, wasabi, soy and pickled ginger).
