Participating restaurants include the Stone Balloon Ale House, Klondike Kate’s, Iron Hill, Santa Fe, Pachama Rotisserie Chicken, Deer Park, Caffe Gelato, Grain Craft Bar + Kitchen, Grotto Pizza, and Home Grown Café. The website for the event says more menus or restaurants may be offered.

The restaurant count is down by a couple of establishments from 2018 and about 20 that signed on in 2014 in Newark, which has dozens of restaurants.

Prices vary, with a limited choice of selections offered for a two-courselunch and three-coursedinner.

Unlike some restaurant weeks, which have a fixed minimum and maximum. Newark’s dining offerings vary in price, with the maximum for dinner at $35 per plate.

In larger cities, restaurant weeks often offer an opportunity for higher-end restaurants to offer heavily discounted menu offerings and perhaps lure return visitors.

Restaurant Week and other downtown Newark events are undergoing a transition with the dissolution of the Downtown Newark Partnership, which will move over to a new organization.

Other downtown food events in Newark include the Wine and Dine and the summer Food and Brew.
