One morning, my wife asked if I would like to attend a chocolate tasting. Well, being a sweets addict and chocolate lover, there was no way i was passing up the opportunity to satisfy my addiction. We arrived at the Blue Rose Inn on Washington Street and, to my surprise, it was a full house. I was happy to see a local business doing so well on a December day.
Cape May Restaurant Week kicked off yesterday and runs through June 12. If you’ve never taken part in our annual event, this is a great year to try it.
How does it work? Visit any of our 27 participating restaurants. The dates and times are listed on the event website, though nearly all of them participate the full week. There are no tickets for this event, though we strongly encourage reservations, where available.
Once you’re at the restaurant, you’ll be presented with the Restaurant Week menu (you should never have to ask for it). Then, choose your appetizer, entree, and dessert from a fixed-price menu. Dinner prices vary from $25 to $35 per person (not including beverages, tax, or gratuity). Portions and selections are representative of the restaurant’s regular menu – you will not leave hungry! And if not everyone at your table wants to partake, that’s no problem, because the regular menu is available as well.
A handful of restaurants offer at 2-course lunch for $15 (appetizer and entree, or entree and dessert).
