Caldwell Restaurant Week Was A Hit! Let's Do It Again!

The first ever Caldwell Restaurant Week ran from Sunday, August 10th through Sunday, August 17th, 2014 and was a huge success. Most of the borough’s restaurants joined the fun with special prix-fixe menus that showcased the culinary diversity of this West Essex community. Caldwell’s restaurant and food scene has been a well guarded secret in the Garden State but Devil Gourmet looked to change all of tha. The event was the brainchild of Devil Gourmet John Lee.

Devil Gourmet was the official media sponsor of Caldwell Restaurant Week.

 Lee explained that the idea for Caldwell Restaurant Week came about while dining at Xunta-Tapas Espana. It was a snowy day and “none of the locals” as John calls them, “were out on the road, except for us Californians.” With few people in the restaurant, Xunta owner Carmen Mendez chatted with John whose “why not” attitude is infectious. One thing led to another and Caldwell’s first restaurant week was created.
