It’s a good time to check out an outdoor patio at Croxley’s or the new Parkside Christians in Farmingdale, since June 13-18 is restaurant week.

For dinners only, participating restaurants have set up varying offers. Many spots offer three courses for less than $25, including Mary’s Pizza & Pasta, The Nutty Irishman, The Original Cascarino’s, Lotus Restaurant, Library Cafe, Tre Scalini and Chichimecas.
