Edible Jersey’s Eat Drink Local Week 2014 (minus Hoboken!)

Mark your calendars, because Edible Jersey is holding their delicious “Eat Drink Local Week” starting this Saturday, June 21st through June 28th.

While the event spans the entire state of New Jersey, Hoboken was sadly left out of the culinary fun!

Edible Jersey Eat Drink Local Week 2014

Eat Drink Local – The Premier NJ Dining Event

Eat Drink Local Week New Jersey 2014The premier dining event to be held in New Jersey this year will take place next month at more than 50 of the state’s finest restaurants. Eat Drink Local Restaurant Week, the annual event celebrating the bounty of New Jersey farmers and the creative culinary skills of dozens of our state’s most talented chefs, will be held June 21-June 28 at restaurants statewide with specially crafted “prix-fixe” menus.

“There are so many talented chefs in New Jersey who place a dedicated emphasis on working with local farmers and purveyors and featuring locally sourced ingredients on their menus,” said Nancy Painter, publisher of Edible Jersey. “This event is designed to showcase those efforts and to help point food lovers toward establishments that offer a truly delicious Garden State dining experience.”

“A new component of the event this year,” continued Painter, “is that we will be partnering local wine, brew and spirit makers as well as some local food artisans with many of the participating restaurants. It should add a fun twist – and an even more enhanced Eat Drink Local experience!”

If you’d like to check it out – below are a few suggestions and ideas.

Check out Light Horse Tavern, Razza and Bistro La Source over in neighboring Jersey City.

Sensible people can hop in a cab for a quick in and out, or the environmentalists can “ride their bikes.” (Cost of rim repairs due to potholes on shoddy roads not covered under this promotion).

Looking for a road trip? Take an adventurous “culinary drive!”

Those with a spice for life, and looking for a little adventure should pick a spot – and take a drive!
