Caldwell Restaurant Week will run from from Sunday, August 9th through Sunday, August 16th, 2015. Most of the borough’s restaurants will join the fun with special prix-fixe menus that showcase the culinary diversity of this West Essex community. Caldwell’s restaurant and food scene has been a well guarded secret in the Garden State but culinary enthusiasts in the know are looking to change all of that.
The idea of a summer restaurant week sounds a bit contrary because “everyone goes on vacation in the summer” but how many of know anyone who summers for the entire season? Organizers understand that there most of the community, and surrounding communities, are in town, yet very few special events are planned.With longer days making evening strolls before and after dinner possible, following Bloomfield’s lead of a summer restaurant week made perfect sense.
Caldwell Restaurant Week will showcase the diversity of dining scene with the cuisine of Spain, Italy, Greece, Japan and of course several variations and spins on American favorites in the spotlight. By the time August rolls around the variety is sure to be even greater! We already know that local favorites Xuntas Tapas, Asalt and Buttery, and Dough Artisanal Pizza will be participating. Restaurateurs who are not sure about what is involved in participating or have any questions can drop to caldwellrestaurantweek at gmail.com.
