“Following a string of very successful food-tasting events sponsored by the Rotary Club of Elizabeth, Taste of Elizabeth and Beyond will feature 30 of the area’s finest restaurants and beverage vendors, plus some exciting new participants,” explained Kenneth Richuso, chairman. “Our event is a unique dining experience featuring an ethnically diverse display of sumptuous gourmet dishes from Elizabeth and the surrounding area’s most exciting restaurants,” he added.
The Rotary event will kick-off a larger, week-long food-tasting experience, Restaurant Week in Elizabeth, that will run from Monday, Oct. 26 to Saturday, Oct. 31. Participants in Restaurant Week in Elizabeth may choose from over 30 of the city’s best restaurants and enjoy a three-course dinner for $20, $30 or $40 per person, depending on the restaurant. “Now is your chance to discover new restaurants and enjoy all your favorites at a discounted price!” Richuso exclaimed.
