Head to the Hamptons a little sooner than usual for the yummy prix fixe menu at Cowfish. The restaurant is offering a choice of five appetizers, including the popular jumbo buffalo shrimp, which come with Danish blue cheese and chives. Follow that up with one of seven entree choices like the NOLA shrimp or Creole salmon. Meat lovers can cut into the half rack of ribs served with wild mushroom risotto or the New York strip with a loaded baked potato. There are also three options of desserts, including a flourless chocolate cake with fresh whipped cream or the healthier fresh berries for anyone who is keeping count on those calories. Go

Longtime restaurateur George Korten caused a stir when he expanded his steak sensation to Syosset in March. Now he’s bringing some more excitement during Restaurant Week with five starter options including the popular Korean BBQ duck tacos (soft corn tortillas, kimchi slaw, sesame, lime and cilantro). Of course a steak option is available for the entrée selection but chicken and fish lovers will also have options to choose from. End with one of three desserts including the hard-to-resit GM brownie sundae coming with vanilla ice cream, chocolate ganache, caramel sauce, whipped cream and M&M’s.
