Coral joins winter Long Island Restaurant Week


Coral, a Spanish tapas and wine bar in East Moriches, is participating for the first time in Long Island Restaurant Week, offering $29.95 three-course prix fixe meals through Feb. 3

Participating restaurants like Coral will offer the prix fixe meals every night they are open from Sunday to Sunday — except Saturday, when it only has to be offered until 7 p.m.

Coral general manager Deonna Delia said the 17-month-old restaurant, which is owned by Jim Carbone and Peter Marchelos, thought it would be a good, affordable way for the community to get a taste of some best-sellers.

The menu includes a choice of patatas brava, brussel sprouts, flatbread or crispy cauliflower for the appetizer, Cornish hen, grilled salmon, or vegetable or meat paella, or skirt steak (+$5) for the entree, and traditional flan, cheesecake, or chocolate mousse for dessert.

Delia noted that the restaurant has an extensive list of wines to pair with the dishes, but that the wine is separate from the prix fixe cost.

She added that the restaurant has a revamped featured catering package, will be hosting a paint night sometime in late February and a murder mystery night in October.
