Long Island Restaurant Week is a tri-annual event designed to garner positive publicity and additional business for the region’s restaurants. Since 2006, it has been an annual November promotion until the first spring Long Island Restaurant Week was launched in April 2011 due to popular customer and restaurateur demand and most recently, a winter edition, early in 2017.
Some of the finest food on the East Coast is available in this region less than one hour from New York City. At the heart of hospitality services on Long Island are hundreds of restaurants and thousands of men and women serving local and visiting diners. Long Island Restaurant Week boosts commerce in traditionally sluggish periods during the fall, between post-summer spending and pre-holiday saving, and in the spring, between warm weather getaways and summer barbecues.
The campaign is presented by Long Island Restaurant & Hospitality Group – the new business-to-consumer promotions division of WordHampton Public Relations, one of Long Island’s top hospitality PR firms.
