Popping up like a daffodil, Long Island's spring restaurant week starts Sunday.

The dining rooms taking part include more than a few where it requires wizardry to keep the tab under $50 per person. But more than 120 restaurants in Nassau and Suffolk will be offering three-course, fixed-price dinners for $27.95. So, go bargain hunting, visiting a restaurant that ordinarily might stretch your budget like hand-pulled mozzarella.
