WILLIAMSBURG — Whether you prefer Neopolitan-style pizza, pork-stuffed tortillas, or tuna sashimi, you can feast on a three-course meal next week in Williamsburg for $25 or less.

Cantina Royale on North 3rd Street, Baci & Abbracci on Grand Street, the Mediterranean My Moon Restaurant on North 10th Street, and Aurora restaurant also on Grand are among the more than 20 neighborhood eateries signed up to participate in the ninth annual Dine in Brooklyn, the borough's restaurant week.

The event, which runs from March 19—29, promotes local businesses and features over 200 restaurants around the borough. Fixed-price three-course meals are available for $20.12 at lunch and brunch, and $25 at dinner.

"The diversity of food is really growing," wrote Brooklyn Borough President's Press Secretary Mark Zustovich, of the trend in Williamsburg Dine in Brooklyn participants.

Zustovich noted that Japanese, Italian, New American/Mediterranean, French, Spanish Tapas, Sardinian, German, Latin American, and Uruguayan cuisines are all represented in the neighborhood.

Williamsburg's Sardinian D.O.C. Wine Bar at North 7th Street, Fushimi Japanese Cuisine and Lounge on Driggs Avenue, Giando on the Water on Kent Avenue, and the upscale modern sushi spot called 1 or 8 near the Williamsburg Bridge, will all take part in the event.

And Cadaques, a Spanish locale on Grand Street, has already solidified its three-course menu for the food extravaganza.

At Cadaques, customers can choose their appetizer from a beet terrine with truffle goat cheese; endives salad with walnut, Serrano ham, oranges, and Cabrales cheese; and mini chorizo wrapped in smoked bacon, spring onions, and dates.

For the main course they can choose either fried cauliflower with hazelnuts and lemon crème fraiche; crispy pork belly with Japanese eggplant, sea urchin, dry provencal tomatoes, and pickled asparagus; or Hiramasa  fish sashimi with vegetables, olive tapenade, and grilled calamari.

And mouthwatering dessert options include "drunken sponge cake" with sangria and grilled pineapple, or traditional Spanish churros with dark chocolate sauce.

More details about all Dine in Brooklyn participants can be found starting Tuesday afternoon on the website Visit Brooklyn.
