Burlington County foodies will have more choices than ever before during the upcoming Burlington County Summer Restaurant Week.
The weeklong celebration of Burlington County restaurants, taverns, food trucks and craft beverage businesses kicks off Sunday with more than 115 participating restaurants, including at least one from all 40 of Burlington County’s municipalities.
“From Bass River to Bordentown and everywhere in between, Burlington County’s Summer Restaurant Week features more restaurants and delicious specials than ever before,” said Burlington County Commissioner Director Felicia Hopson. “Burlington County has some of the best restaurants anywhere and we’re looking forward to celebrating, spotlighting and sampling them during this exciting week.”
Summer Restaurant Week is organized and promoted by the Burlington County Commissioners in partnership with State Senator Troy Singleton and the Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce. Throughout the week, they will highlight participating establishments by making visits and posting spotlights about the businesses on social media.
Many participating restaurants and eateries have also created Restaurant Week menus, specials, unique dishes and discounts to mark the event.
Among the specials announced, Gaetano’s of Willingboro has created “Gaetano’s Fusion Feast” – a fixed price menu featuring a mix of the restaurant’s legendary cheesesteak subs with other beloved Italian dinner creations.
Others are offering three course or four-course menus, including Iron Hill Restaurant and Brewery in Maple Shade, Braddock’s Tavern in Medford, Luna y Sol Mexican Restaurant in Moorestown, Estia Taverna in Marlton, Joe Italiano’s in Moorestown, Red Lion Diner in Southampton and Capt’n Chucky’s Crab Cake Co. in Cinnaminson. Marblehead Chowder House in Westampton is also offering Restaurant Week lunch and dinner menus during the week.
A complete list of all 116 participating restaurants and offers is available online at the County’s Burlington County Summer Restaurant Week page, www.co.burlington.nj.us/1844/Summer-Restaurant-Week-2023 . Also, be sure to follow the Burlington County Commissioners, Senator Singleton and the Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce on Facebook and Instagram for restaurant spotlights, photos and videos of many of the delectable dishes the local restaurants are serving.
“In every corner of Burlington County, we have amazing restaurants including many small family-run businesses, whose owners and employees are neighbors, family or friends,” said Senator Singleton. “These businesses are important gathering spots and are essential to our communities and downtowns. Restaurant Week is our way to support and showcase them and give them a much-deserved boost in business.”
“From cheesesteaks and wings to fusion and fine dining, Burlington County has it all. No matter your tastes, Restaurant Week is a great way to support local restaurants and their employees,” added Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Kristi Howell.
Burlington County Restaurant Week was first created in 2019 as an economic development initiative to showcase local restaurants and their importance to local communities. It quickly grew to become one of the County’s biggest and most popular business promotions, which prompted the Commissioners to expand the event and hold it twice a year.
The first Winter Restaurant Week was held in March this year and featured more than 60 restaurants. This summer’s event surpasses that total and features dozens of places participating for the first time.
“Restaurant Week was a great idea when it started and its growth has been phenomenal,” said Burlington County Commissioner Deputy Director Tom Pullion. “In just a few years, we’ve become one of the biggest restaurant weeks across the region, and that includes Philadelphia and Atlantic City. Our county’s restaurants are among the best anywhere and Restaurant Week is the perfect way to sample a new place and support some of your local favorites.”
