Roselle Park’s first Restaurant Week, title RPRW15, is underway until Saturday, June 27th.

There will also be artwork from 16 students from Roselle Park that will be displayed in those locations for the week. Various works of art that will be adorning the walls of those restaurants include paintings, among others, by

  • Fabian Amaro
  • Jake Curia
  • Emilia Diaz
  • Jennifer Hahn
  • Nina Ignacio
  • Gianna Kingsland
  • Lucy Rennar

Part of the joy of discovery is in finding it by happenstance so the location of each painting is not disclosed at the moment.

In addition to house specialties, some places have offered a discount as well as prix-fixe specials for the rest of the week. China Royal, Valentino’s, Fresca, Mulligan’s Pub, Pompeii, Valentino’s have discounts from 10-15%. Joe’s Rotiserria, Sunrise Diner, and Vintage Italian will all offer prix-fixe specials. The only thing needed to take advantage is simply to mention “Roselle Park Restaurant Week”.

Everyone will have an opportunity to try something new or introduce a friend to an old favorite.

So get ready to have your appetite for food and art satisfied and take advantage of RPRW15.

The end of RPRW15 will coincide with the re-scheduled Cruisin’ Night Car Show so be sure to walk around and check out classic cars and then stop by a local eatery to discover some new favorites.
