March 23 – April 2: Brooklyn Restaurant Week 2009


In two weeks, the Dine In Brooklyn fork will dip into Sheepshead Bay. Participating restaurants are:

Baku Palace
2001 Emmons Avenue

Clemente’s Maryland Crabhouse D
3939 Emmons Avenue

IL Fornetto Restaurant D
2902 Emmons Avenue

Liman Restaurant L
2710 Emmons Avenue

Osaka Japanese Restaurant
2805 Avenue U

While we don’t have as many restaurants participating — as in, let’s say, trendy Williamsburg or hip Park Slope — we do have a few.

Unless otherwise noted, the restaurants listed above are offering a three-course meal at lunch and dinner for $23. Lunch at the waterfront restaurant, Il Fornetto, is being offered for two at one price (2 for $23).

Restaurant Weeks are usually held only on weekdays from Monday through Friday, but the flyer from the Brooklyn Borough President’s office didn’t specifically list this limitation. You might want to contact Marty Markowitz and ask, since even some restaurant reservationists aren’t too sure.

This recession has caused New York City’s Restaurant Weeks to be extended, with a few even offering the special price on weekend — so, keep on the lookout.
