Is it hot in here, or is it a chile festival?

Besito, the sharp Mexican restaurant with branches in Huntington and Roslyn, battles the last weeks of winter with a chile festival. Specials highlighting chiles will be offered each week from March 7 to April 3.

The first week's choices include an appetizer of stuffed ancho chile with jumbo lump crab meat and cilantro cream sauce; main dishes of Long Island duck enchiladas, baked in ancho-chile adobo sauce, and roasted red snapper with roasted ancho chile sauce and warm vegetable escabèche.

Besito in Huntington is at 402 New York Ave., 631-549-0100; Besito in Roslyn, 1516 Old Northern Blvd., 516-484-3001.
