It’s that time again. Local towns are bringing back their “restaurant weeks” so they can showcase their
variety of eateries and bring new (and returning) customers to the town. This March is just bustling with restaurant weeks, so we compiled a list of where to dine and what specials you’ll find.
Bristol. Historic Bristol Borough is just one borough that’s known for its restaurant scene. Visitors can sample one or more of the borough’s dining establishments during the town’s very first restaurant week, which started on March 3 and is ending this Wednesday, March 10.
Restaurant goers have taken to the Dining and Entertainment in Historic Bristol Borough’s Facebook page to share what foods they’ve been trying and what they recommend for newcomers. Check it out for yourself:
Went to Cafe Bombay to kick off restaurant
week. Loved the sampler platter, I never would have tried the seafood myself but it was delicious…everything was delicious — Jennifer
Flemington. The Flemington Business Improvement District’s (BID) Restaurant Week returned this Monday, March 7 and will end on March 13. There is quite the lineup this year, and the Flemington Restaurant Association invites the community to come out to enjoy a good deal on a great meal. This year, it has expanded to include members and restaurants in Raritan Township who pay dues to be part of this group. Call the restaurant directly to make reservations, and be sure to check with each restaurant about their special menus and hours. Restaurant week doesn’t typically include beverage, tax or gratuity.
