Taste Of Flemington Fall Restaurant Week Is Nov. 4 to 9
FLEMINGTON, N.J. — With 20 venues to choose from Taste of Flemington fall Restaurant Week will offer numerous choices.

“Flemington has become a major restaurant destination for everyone from the surrounding area,” said Ann Meredith, executive director of the Flemington Community Partnership. “The spring restaurant week was such a success we added one for fall.”

The fall Restaurant Week gets started on Sunday, Nov. 4, and runs through Friday, Nov. 9.
Menus will include three-course dinners from $25 or $35, with special pricing at other meals. New this fall, many sites will offer take-out specials.

Matt McPherson, owner of Matt’s Red Rooster said, “The Rooster is really looking forward to being a part of this again in November. We're always trying to find new ways to meet interesting people who love food as much as we do and fall is a perfect time to showcase our local late harvest menu.”

Diners may be surprised at what they will find and where. Santiago Cuellar,Jr., who took over the Flemington Coffee Shop in April, is bringing some Latin flair to the menu with empanadas and Mexican desserts like flan. Food one would expect to find in a coffee shop, like pancakes, are also served but “Slowly people are finding out about this other yummy stuff,” Cuellar said. The empanadas are made from a homemade recipe and getting rave reviews, he said. It will be Cuellar's first Restaurant Week and he plans on offering a platter of empanadas with rice, and flan for dessert.

A long time local favorite, Viva Mexico is offering a $25 three-course prixe fixe menu featuring delicious authentic Mexican specialities including Sopa de Tortilla, made with Guajillo chile chicken broth, crispy tortillas, avocados, and tomatoes. Camarones a la Diabla features sautéed jumbo shrimp with garlic chipotle sauce over rice and vegetables. Chef/Owner Arias Librado Guzman stated, "Restaurant Week is a time to welcome new friends to our restaurant and let them experience our homemade specialities. He added, "During Restaurant Week, everyone eats dessert! We offer three traditional choices, homemade Mexican style Flan, Churros with cinnamon sugar, vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce; and Buñuelo , fried dough puffs topped with ice cream and syrup."

"Taste of Flemington is a great chance to try something new," Meredith said,“We look forward to people discovering some of the best that Flemington has to offer.”
