Twenty-one* Hopewell Valley restaurants will be hosting the first-ever Hopewell area restaurant week, “Restaurant Week HV”during the week of February 22-28th.
“I love the restaurant week idea. It’s so great to have a valley wide event that will surely taste delicious,” said Will Mooney, owner and chef of Brothers Moon in Hopewell Borough.
Michael Moriello, owner and chef of Avanti’s in Pennington Boro, sees Restaurant Week as a way to welcome new diners to his establishment. “Avanti’s has been here 20 years, but I became the owner less than a year ago. Restaurant Week is a great way for people to get to know us,” said Moriello.
Besides being a delicious week-long event aimed to encourage locals and beyond to try our great restaurants , the event will also raise money for F.I.S.H (Friends in Service Here), the Valley’s own meals-on-wheels program. FISH is a charitable 501(c)(3), 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 served Monday through Friday. The only requirement is that the client is homebound and this can be on a permanent or temporary basis.
“I’ve been all over New Jersey, working in restaurants that my family owned but Hopewell is something special,” said Antimo Iovine, owner of Antimo’s Italian Kitchen in Hopewell Borough. “We’ll be making some homemade Raviolis, and other specials, for Restaurant Week.”
