Brooklyn Restaurant Week is rolling around again. The dates of the 2010 event are set for March 15 to the 25. Last year we told you that the Sheepshead Bay had slim pickings when it came to participation in the prix fixe dinners and lunches. This year, Clemente’s Maryland Crabhouse does not appear on the list, but there is an added brunch deal, as well as a designation for the few Kosher offerings (look for the ‘K’ in a light blue circle). Below is a list of the local offerings, or visit the ‘Visit Brooklyn’ website and see the full list, in case you are looking to venture out of Sheepshead Bay.
Restaurant Weeks are usually held only on weekdays from Monday through Friday, but the flyer does not specifically list this limitation. You might want to to check with each restaurant, before making your plans. There may be a few of those restaurants that even extend the specials beyond March 25.
Here is a list of the restaurants participating in the neighborhood:
Baku Palace L D
2001 Emmons Avenue
IL Fornetto Restaurant D and Lunch for 2 special
2902 Emmons Avenue
Liman Restaurant L
