In like a lion, out like a lamb; conventional wisdom that applies to the month of March, and wisdom we hope applies to Dine Huntington’s spring restaurant week, too.

Only the hardiest of souls ventured out Sunday to partake in the opening night of Dine Huntington Restaurant Week amidst another wintry blast, but the ones that did were in for a real treat.

Across Huntington, 24 restaurants are offering up delightful $27.95 three-course prix fixes featuring some of their favorites along with new creations whipped up just for the occasion.

Dine Huntington Restaurant Week’s first spring edition concludes on March 8, the same day of the St. Patrick’s parade which is expected to draw thousands to town for a celebration of Irish culture earlier in the day. Why not cap off a day of revelry with a fantastic meal? Make sure to swing by a Dine Huntington-participating restaurant and order up your favorites, or explore a new destination and expand your horizons.

No matter how you go about it, peruse this selection of some of each restaurant’s offerings on tap for this weekend’s celebration. Bon appétit!
