MONTCLAIR, NJ - Montclair Restaurant Week 2015 starts Saturday September 19 and runs to September 27. The nine day event is hosted by the Montclair Rotary Club and is sponsored by Tap Into Montclair.
The Restaurant Week kick-off coincides with the Upper Montclair Business District sidewalk sale. It is also the same day as Art in the Park in Anderson Park. The last day of restaurant week coincides with Open Streets Montclair in the township’s central business district.
“Restaurant Week 2015 is unstructured” said Taste of Montclair Chair John Lee. “This week is about the restaurants. Some will have prix fixe menus, some will have discounts, and some will have specials during the week, with another offer on the weekend. This is the Montclair Rotary Club’s chance to provide a platform to support the restaurants and food crafters who support us.”
The restaurants that are participating officially made a $50 donation to the Montclair Rotary Club, all of which will go to the charities supported by the club.
The participation list is as follows:
Brick Lane Curry House
Tiny Elephant Cafe
Olive That And More
Stuffed Grass-Fed Burgers
Sweet Home Montclair
Cupcakes By Carousel
The restaurants come from all areas of town, represent a wide variety of price points and food styles, and all have a passion for supporting the people of Montclair.
Details about each participant can be found on their respective social media pages as well as the rotary’s Official Facebook page (TasteOfMontclair, MontclairRotaryClub) and twitter @TasteMontclair.
