BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Twenty-three establishments are offering menus and pricing designed to entice area residents to head downtown for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and wine and liquor purchases during Berkeley Heights Restaurant Week, September 11 through17. Three more reasons to make your plans and reservations now are the frequent diner Passport contest, the availability of childcare and children’s activities, and options that satisfy the desire to eat healthfully. 

PASSPORT CONTEST

The theme, “Eat Around the World, Globally” describes not just the range of cuisines available but Passport, a contest promotion. Every time a diner makes a purchase, the participating establishment will stamp their Passport. Diners who collect at least five stamps from participating establishments during Restaurant Week then enter to win prizes, including gift cards. Download a Passport in advance of dining out.

CHILDCARE ACTITIVIES

Berkeley Heights Recreation Department and the Berkeley Heights Y are offering special activities for children during Restaurant Week so that parents of young children can enjoy a leisurely lunch or dinner. The Recreation Department is offering childcare from noon to 2 p.m. on weekdays. And Friday night can be date night thanks to the Berkeley Heights Y, which is holding “Pajama Party at the Y” for 4 to 11 year old children.

HEALTHIER OPTIONS

Christin Babic, member of the Downtown Beautification Committee, said: “Eating out can absolutely mean eating healthily. The Wellness Director at the Berkeley Heights Y has highlighted one item from each menu as a healthier choice—and many establishments offer a large number of good-for-you options.
