Spring has sprung. For many, this is an opportunity for a fresh start. A time to leave behind those winter blues for sunshine and exploring the new. And what better way to explore what Flemington really has to offer than with Flemington’s restaurant week, Taste of Flemington?

This special week was sponsored and ran by Love Flemington, an organization from the Flemington Community Partnership. They work hard to promote community and local businesses in Flemington as well as local culture. The Partnership described the week-long event as a way to “sample Flemington’s delicious, fresh, and eclectic restaurants.”

While Flemington has a reputation of being a quiet and small town with little to do, Love Flemington is trying to change that perception by highlighting what we do have: for instance, restaurants. This spring, Taste of Flemington took place between March 31st and April 5th with twenty participating local restaurants. Lots of restaurants on and near Main Street participated, including 55 Main, Aunt Dee Dee’s,  Blue Fish Grill, Capuano Ristorante Italiano, the Chimney Rock Inn, Dolce Ristorante Italiano, Factory Fuel Co. Coffee House, Flemington Coffee Shop, Garden State Salads, and plenty more.

Options ranged from local coffee shops to full service restaurants. Throughout the week, chef’s added a variety of different specials to their menus, and dinner places created 3-Course Prix-Fixe Dinners for between $25 or $35! Teaberry’s Tea Room offered a small pot of tea, soup, salad, tea sandwiches, and scones for $30. Not far from the Tea Room, Nespolo on Main Street had a special Prix-Fixe with a salad to start paired with an entree choice of various pastas including pesto, beef bolognese, and polenta. And of course, what would an Italian place be without gelato to top it all off? The menu of Matt’s Red Rooster gave you two choices to start: salad or a roasted carrot and ginger soup. For the entree, Matt’s had many elegant meats and fish dishes with a mushroom dish as a vegetarian option. Finally, there was a blueberry bread pudding for desert if the starter and entree weren’t already enough!

All in all, Flemington has a lot to offer in the realm of local, authentic food and Taste of Flemington was a great way to discover new, delicious, and authentic local cuisine! Although Restaurant Week is over, it’s never too late to check out the great food our town has to offer.
