In many New Jersey communities, it’s become an annual event.
Restaurants large and small participate in restaurant weeks, which are held throughout the year and often take place for more than just a week. Business districts hold these events to bring patrons into town to shop and dine out, hoping to bring more people into town and increase the vibrancy of the community with special multi-course prix-fixe menus.
Here are some New Jersey towns (in alphabetical order) hosting a restaurant week in March 2019:
Atlantic City Restaurant Week
From the casinos to communities just outside of Atlantic City, there is something for everyone. Participating restaurants will offer multi-course meals at fixed prices. Like what you ordered? Then you can try making it at home. Local chefs have shared some of their recipes on the Atlantic City Restaurant Week website.
