Bloomfield Restaurant Week 2015 will run from Saturday, Aug. 1 through Sunday, Aug. 9. The popular event showcasing the diversity of the cuisines available in town has been expanded this year to give diners additional time to sample a variety of restaurants. More than 20 of Bloomfield’s finest restaurants will offer lunch and/or dinner prix fixe menus costing $30 or less, not including drinks, tax and tips.
“In Bloomfield, we are blessed with a wide array of delicious food and Bloomfield Restaurant Week is the perfect opportunity to visit a few favorites and try some new ones,” said Anthony Lauro of Anthony’s Cheesecakes and a member of the Bloomfield Restaurant Week Committee.
The special prix-fixe, multi-course options offered by each participating restaurant encourages diners to try several different eateries during the August promotional week.
Rodgee Cao, owner of Spice Thai Cuisine, who is also a member of the Bloomfield Restaurant Week Committee, is equally enthusiastic about this event and the opportunity to interact with the dining community. “For me, food is universal and that’s what excites me about Bloomfield Restaurant Week. As a restaurant owner, I get to meet all types of people from different backgrounds. During previous events, I met many new customers who had never eaten Thai food before and they have now become regular customers. Bloomfield has a rich cultural history and diversity and Restaurant Week showcases the array of eclectic and fascinating cuisine our town has to offer.”
Extensive promotions for Bloomfield Restaurant Week will reach local residents as well as the neighboring communities of Montclair, Nutley, Glen Ridge, Belleville, Clifton, West Orange and beyond. Comcast Spotlight is a major sponsor and promoter of the event; watch for commercials beginning in July on Food Network and other local cable channels.
