Hudson Restaurant Week 7/22 – 8/2

Hudson Restaurant Week is a dining promotion twice a year when the restaurants are usually slow, January and July. You pick a participating restaurant, make a reservation or visit, and enjoy a meal at a discount. It’s a biannual celebration of dining in Hudson County with prix-fixe discounted menus. During Hudson Restaurant Week, get social and tag your photos or post while your eating with #HudsonRW for a chance for Hudson Restaurant Week to pay your meal!

How it works?

Enjoy a great discounted meal is sooo easy!

  1. Choose a restaurant: search and find a restaurant right for you, your group, your taste.
  2. Make a reservation: either online through OpenTable, call a restaurant or take your chance and walk-in.
  3. Bon Appetit: skip cooking and enjoy your prix-fixe meal!
