Spring makes you hungry for more sun, short sleeves, a good meal. Here are three choices for the weekend.
In Huntington, Jonathan's is having its own March Madness, with a 30 percent discount on wine. The discount is available Sunday to Friday, but not on Saturday. There are plenty of excellent choices at different prices. Among the producers whose wines are available: Gaja, Bruno Giacosa, Felsina and Paolo Scavino from Italy; and Shafer, Duckhorn, Caymus and Turley from California. Enjoy a plate of salumi, or cured meats; and follow with a juicy pork chop or a risotto.
Jonathan's is at 15 Main St., Huntington; 631-549-0055.
Head all the way east to sample the menus from new chef Robbin Haas at the Montauk Yacht Club. His Gulf Coast Kitchen starts Hamptons Restaurant Week with a $24.95 fixed-price menu that includes such spring fare as roasted striped bass with roasted ramps and morels; and English pea agnolotti with roasted tomato broth.
Gulf Coast Kitchen is at 32 Star Island Rd., Montauk; 631-668-3100.
And brunch at The Palm Court, the airy eatery at the Carltun complex in Eisenhower Park, has Sunday brunch for $34.95. Mimosas and Bloody Marys, omelets and French toast, steak and eggs, more.
Reach The Park Court in East Meadow at 516-542-0700.
