You can roll your eyes all you want, but we’re still going to insist that there’s something to be said for South Jersey’s Independent Restaurant Association’s (aka SJ Hot Chefs) restaurant week dealy. The latest round of which just kicked off last night. It runs through Friday, March 23. And sure, restaurant week-like promotions can sometimes summon the worst in diners as well as kitchen and service staffs, but when the SJ Hot Chefs put forth their semi-annual four course prix fixes specials, it’s in celebration of the Garden State’s bounteous food shed, and in staunch opposition to chains and fast food. So, it’s like admirable and righteous, rather than a loss leader for calculating restaurateurs. Check out what restaurants are participating here.
