Coming Right Up: Hopewell Valley Restaurant Week!

Hopewell Valley Restaurant Week is back!

HV logoI love to see restaurant owners joining forces to build business, especially those that are locally owned, often by the chef.

So it’s great to see that Hopewell Valley restaurateurs are doing so again this year. The dates for the second annual Hopewell Valley Restaurant Week are March 5-13, with restaurants throughout the area offering special menus. The event also strives to raise money for F.I.S.H, the valley’s own meals on wheels program.

Of note here is that the recently opened Brick Farm Tavern, will offer a $25 three-course special in the bar. I KNOW!!

Celebrating 15 years in Hopewell Borough, The Brothers Moon will be cooking up special three-course menus for lunch ($20.16) and dinner ($39.00). Owner Will Mooney says, “We love Restaurant Week! It’s a great opportunity for folks who have never tried Brothers Moon to give us a try and for us to give them no choice but to come back again. It’s also a excellent reason for our regular patrons to come on out for a great meal and a great cause.”

Antimo Iovine, of Antimo’s Italian Kitchen in Hopewell Boro tells us “We’ll be making some homemade raviolis and other specials for Restaurant Week.” Antimos has been serving homemade Italian specialties and pizza since the mid-1990s. “We love this community and are always happy to help support a local non-profit like F.I.S.H.”

At press time the participating restaurants are:

Antimo’s Italian Kitchen, Blue Bottle Café, The Boro Bean, The Brothers Moon, Da’s Kitchen, Francos Pizzeria, Hopewell Bistro and Inn, Nomad Pizza, The Peasant Grill, Sweetgrass Restaurant, Diamond’s Restaurant, Pennington Bagel, The Family Place, Brick Farm Tavern, Subway at Pennington Citgo, Wildflowers.

The organizers anticipate that there may be a few more as they get closer to the date, so be sure to check their website.

Also of note:

Patrons of Restaurant Week will also have the opportunity to support FISH (Friends in Service Here), Hopewell Valley’s own meals on wheels program. FISH is a charitable 501C, all volunteer program serving meals on wheels to the homebound of Hopewell, Pennington, Titusville and surrounding areas. Meals are made and subsidized by the Pennington Quality Market on a sliding scale depending upon need, and are served Monday through Friday. The only requirement is that the client is homebound and this can be on a permanent or temporary basis. Participating restaurants will have envelopes that patrons can leave a donation in, or take home and mail directly to F.I.S.H.
