Think you’re too late to join the Restaurant Week fun? Sure, most towns like to host the event when it’s a little warmer out or while harvest season is still fresh in our pantries, but that doesn’t mean you can’t cozy up indoors and fill up before the holidays! Here are some NJ Restaurant Weeks to hit up before the season ends.
