Restaurant Week is organized by the Berkeley Heights Downtown Beautification Committee in cooperation with local establishment owners and the Suburban Chamber of Commerce. All restaurants are open and accessible during Union County road construction on Springfield Avenue.

Julie Lloyd, Chairperson of the Downtown Beautification Committee, said, “Restaurant Week calls attention to Berkeley Heights as a rising dining destination. Four of its diverse establishments are listed on Open Table and have earned 4+ stars— more aligned with larger places like the City of Summit than other towns in this area. With liquor, snack, and convenience stores joining in, there are choices for all tastes and budgets. We encourage residents of Berkeley Heights, Long Hill, New Providence, Warren, Chatham, and Mountainside to dine in and take out from our restaurants all week long.”

Berkeley Heights Recreation Department and the Berkeley Heights Y are offering special activities for children during Restaurant Week:

  • Weekday Lunch Out: Drop off your children, age 2 to 6 and potty-trained, along with a bagged lunch at Berkeley Heights Recreation at 56 Columbus Avenue and their trained staff will look after your child while you enjoy lunch from a participating establishment. The program runs from 12 noon to 2 pm, Monday through Friday of Restaurant Week, and the fee is $20 per child. No advance registration is required.
  • Parent’s Night Out—Friday Night is Date Night: The Berkeley Heights Y is offering “Pajama Party at the Y” “on Friday, September 15 from 6 pm to 9 pm. Children between the ages of 4 and 11 will be split into two groups to eat a pizza dinner, watch a movie, and play active games. Advance registration is required and fees are $20 per child for Y members and $25 for non-members.  Contact Holly Sylvestri at 908-464-8301 or holly.sylvestri@thesay.org.

Christin Babic, member of the Downtown Beautification Committee, said: “Restaurant Week is about connecting with friends and family over food, and it’s for everyone: young and old, commuters and homemakers, for weekday lunch dates and afterschool snack time. Busy professionals can enjoy a delicious and convenient dinner after a workday. Parents will find on every menu healthy choices for the family. Seniors can meet up with friends. It’s the perfect time to visit favorite food establishments and try new places.”
