BROOKLYN - Today marked the start of Restaurant Week, but only three Brooklyn restaurants are participating in the citywide event.

The River Cafe, which has participated since 1992, joins Benchmark and the Greenhouse Cafe as the lone trio.

The event is organized by NYC & Company, which creates a list of participating restaurants on its website, NYCGO.com. To be on the list, restaurant owners must pay an annual fee and qualify as a dining establishment.

However, since most of the restaurants on the list are in Manhattan, some Brooklyn restaurant owners say they thought their borough was excluded from the start.
