Winter 2015 Hudson Restaurant Week is Here!

Next Monday, January 26th, marks the start of the biggest Hudson Restaurant Week yet!

Approximately 50 restaurants throughout Hudson County are participating in the 10 day event of discounted prix-fixe menus and close to half of those are in Jersey City.

Restaurants have the choice of offering a prix-fixe lunch, dinner, or both. Lunches run from $15-$20 and dinners range between $25-$40, typically for three courses.

I've had varying degrees of success with Restaurant Week meals and my recommendations are:
  1.  Try going someplace new. Whether it's the place you've kept meaning to go and never gotten around to or a restaurant you've never heard of, this is a great time to explore.
  2. Find a place where the discounts are worth it  Don't go someplace where you're only going to save a dollar  then you might as well go any other time and get exactly what you want rather than be limited to the set menu.
  3. Speaking of the set menu - spend some time checking out the Restaurant Week menus online and make sure you're interested in the menu as a whole, not just one entree or one appetizer. You're there to enjoy the entire meal.
  4. Read reviews of the restaurant. Make sure it's the atmosphere you're looking for - but also take everything with a grain of salt.

Happy Dining!
