SEASIDE HEIGHTS – Three of Seaside Heights’ newest restaurants, including one oceanfront and one bayfront, will be among the dozen dining experiences that will be part of Restaurant Week here Friday, May 13 through Sunday the 22nd.
The Ocean Club Restaurant, on the oceanfront near the Seaside Heights/ Seaside Park border, Sunset Seafood, on the northern bayfront, and Offshore BBQ, on the Boulevard next to Heavy Reel Brewing, are all new to the Seaside Heights dining scene and are participating in the dining promotion. They have joined well-known regulars offering a prix fixe menu for breakfast, lunch, and or dinner.
Menus and restaurant details are available online at www.exit82.com/restaurant-week. Diners are encouraged to visit that web page regularly as specifics for individual restaurants may change during the week.
Twelve restaurants ranging from pizza stands to casual sit-down restaurants are each offering their own fixed-price menus. All of the restaurants in Seaside Heights are within a two block walk of the ocean and The Classic American Boardwalk or the bayfront. That provides the opportunity for Restaurant Week attendees to make an outing of their dining experience.
Prix fixe menus are a feature of restaurant weeks throughout the country. For Seaside Heights Restaurant Week, they feature two or three course meals.
All of the participating restaurants charge the same prices:
Breakfast for $9.22 or $11.22 ~ for example: entrée or sandwich, home fries or toast & beverage
Lunch for $14.22 or $18.22 ~ for example: appetizer or salad, entrée, sandwich, taco or pizza & beverage
Dinner for $28.22 or $36.22 ~ for example: appetizer or salad, entrée, sandwiches, tacos or pizza pie, dessert or beverage
The week also builds on one of the themes of Coca Cola, the official beverage of Seaside Heights. The beverage’s “Real Magic happens when people eat together” theme is particularly fitting for the week. The Seaside Heights Business Improvement District (SSHBID) will soon provide details of a contest encouraging people to share the real magic of their dining experiences during Restaurant Week.
Restaurant Week is organized by The Seaside Heights Business Improvement District, the non-profit economic development organization that works at both improving the business climate in Seaside Heights and attracting new businesses and assisting them settling in the town. The organization works closely with Borough government to those ends.
There are more than 50 food establishments scattered throughout the less-than one square mile town, ranging from ice cream or French fry stands to full-service, sit-down restaurants.
