You’ve got lots of eating to look forward to this month, with two different restaurant weeks happening in the borough. The first takes place in Sunnyside, from October 20th to the 24th. There are 32 restaurants participating — twice as many as last year — including Venturo, Salt & Fat, Tibetan Dumpling Cafe and Murphy’s Lobster Grill. Check out the full list of participating restaurants at Sunnyside Shines. Each restaurant will serve a three-course dinner menu for $25; other spots will offer a special lunch menu.
