Did everyone have a busy weekend? Did you celebrate Cinco de Mayo or enjoy the Kentucky Derby parties? This week, slow things down with a few foodie events in Bucks County, like the return of the Newtown Borough restaurant week or an Italian wine tasting dinner. As always, there are more events in our full food calendar!
Newtown Borough Restaurant Week. It’s time for another week of restaurant specials, thanks to Newtown Borough’s 5th annual restaurant week. Restaurant week started this Sunday, and runs through Thursday, May 11. The purpose of the restaurant week is to promote all the great dining and shopping establishments in the area. Enjoy dining specials at Florentino’s, The Brick Hotel, the Temperance House, Boccaccio Restaurant, Cafe con Leche, Becky’s Newtown Deli, and The Coffee Room.
Wine tasting dinner. No need to hop on a plane and fly to Italy, you can experience the country’s great wines locally in Bucks County this week. Discover 10 Italian wines at the Washington House’s wine tasting dinner, which is this Tuesday, May 9. Make your reservations by phone at 215.257.3000 to save your spot. The wine dinner costs $59 and spots fill up fast.
Food for Thought Book Club. Come and meet the official book club of the Doylestown Food Co-Op. They meet on the second Tuesday of each month, which means they meet again this Tuesday, May 9. If you are unfamiliar with the book club, know that the books focus on food and cooking.
