Nestled on the North Fork, this barn-wood walled chowder house and “oysteria” has a restaurant week seafood spread fit for a king. Appetizers range from Manhattan clam chowder to P.E.I. mussels with Thai red curry, coconut and lime. Entrees are on the hearty side with options like shrimp penne, fish and chips and horseradish crusted cod. For the land lovers: grilled flat iron steak, pan roasted chicken breast and a burger with smoked mozzarella and bacon onion marmalade. And with swimsuit season still a month or two away, diners can splurge on one of the three desserts with ease. Phone: 631-876-5300 | Address: 62300 Main Rd Click to go

The next batch of dishes scream comfort with options like spicy veal and sausage over orecchiette and braised short ribs alongside pancetta-scallion potato mash and roasted green beans.

CowFish’s sister restaurant, Rumba is all about bringing Caribbean vibes to Long Island. Take the wooden-and-teal decor or the colorful cocktails that locals can’t stop raving about. During restaurant week, start with the duck empanadas, and from there it’s hard to make a wrong choice. The Caribbean blackened mahi is fresh, the island ribeye is tender and the key lime pie—award-winning! Phone: 631-594-3544 | Address: 43 Canoe Place Rd Click to go
