Every year, in April and November, dozens of restaurants put their best plates forward for Jersey Shore Restaurant Week.
The 10-day tribute to local dining, which kicked off on Friday November 3rd, began in 2009 when Jim Flynn of Wall, creator of Shorefoodie.com, decided to replicate a dining experience he encountered while traveling: an annual event that inspires diners to take a seat at a new restaurant.
How does it work? From November 3rd to Nov. 12, participating restaurants offer a prix fixe three-course meal – lunch, dinner, or both – for $15.17, $22.17 or $32.17.
On Saturday, my family and I went out to Elbow Room in Bradley Beach.
More than 80 in Monmouth and Ocean counties will take part in Jersey Shore Restaurant Week.
