Foodies and fans alike have lots to celebrate this week, as the freshest local ingredients from the fields of South Jersey head straight to the plates of Collingswood diners.
Farm Fresh Restaurant Week puts the best of Restaurant Row on display in a multi-course setting. For $35, you get a crack at an appetizer or two, entree and dessert.
You're supporting the local economy, regional agriculture, and maybe even taking a loved one out for a nice evening, all for an affordable price. That's a win-win-win.
Three Things to Remember
This isn't the first year for Farm Fresh Restaurant Week, but if it's yours, here are a few tips for the uninitiated.
1. Make a reservation. Many participating restaurants accept reservations through the OpenTable smartphone application.
2. B.Y.O.B. Check the menus and call ahead if you want to hear about recommended alcohol pairings.
3. Tip generously. Tax and gratuity are not included in the price of your meal.
