Restaurant Week at the Jersey Shore!

For the last 5 years, residents of the Jersey Shore have looked forward to restaurant week. For one week each year, the area’s top restaurants put together a fixed menu at a special price, usually including an appetizer, a main dish, and a dessert. This year, restaurant week runs through November 17th, so stop by any town of your choice, because something delicious is waiting for you.

A big part of the fun of restaurant week is the great selection of events – one of which is a bacon testing to be held at 709 in Point Pleasant Beach from 7-9PM on November 14th. That’s right, they will be serving bacon prepared in a number of different ways for you to sample. To top it off, all of the scrumptious, bacon dishes will be paired with bacon-inspired cocktails and Third Shift craft beer. A bacon lover’s dream!

If you’re looking for the best martini at the shore, make sure you head over to The Mill in Spring Lake Heights on the 17th for the 2013 Martini Contest. This year’s contest will feature twelve of the Shore’s premier mixologists as they serve up their best martinis for you to sample. The Martini Contest is always one of the best events during restaurant week, so make your reservations early!

One of the most popular events of the week takes place on the 16th at Harpoon Willy’s on the river in Manasquan. The Burgers, Bloodiest and Brews event is exactly as the title reads – a great selection of Harpoon Willy’s burgers served with one of their many beers or a Bloody Mary. The event takes place from 12-4PM, so get there early to enjoy the full festivities.

If you are more of a wine and cheese person, the Undici event in Rumson on the 10th would have been the event for you. Hosted by Vic Rallo from the TV show “Eat! Drink! Italy!”, it offered attendees a chance to sample over 50 wines, cheeses and pastas from the regions of Italy. The event may have passed, but you still have time to sample one of their incredible meals at Restaurant Week prices. This is one restaurant experience that you won’t want to miss!

These are just a few of the great events that are taking place during restaurant week. For a list of all of the events and the multitude of participating restaurants, check out JerseyShoreRestaurantWeek.com.
