NEWTON, NJ – The alfresco dining theme with lights strung around Downtown Newton for the 14th annual Taste of Newton event, set the scene for a memorable evening for a good cause on Mon., Sept. 21.
The Greater Newton Chamber of Commerce (GNCC) hosts the annual event, with the proceeds benefitting scholarships for local students, including those who are pursuing the culinary arts.
Nancy Woods, the Greater Newton Chamber of Commerce Executive Director said of the evening, “The restaurants did a spectacular job. Everyone is raving about the food. The weather held out. And we’re enjoying the new Spring Street.”
Spring Street was recently transformed to a one-way street, with new bump outs to ensure the street is more pedestrian-friendly, including one central area in front of the fire museum, where the musical entertainment was located for the festivities, with the band Unsung Heroes performing. The street was closed off to vehicular traffic, so the guests could mingle in the stretch from Spring Street around Adams Street, to Moran Street.
Eateries served up a range of cuisine, and attendees could enjoy a cash bar with wine, beer and mixed drinks located at the heart of the event.
Participating establishments included: 4 Chicks Café, Andre’s, Barrel House, Bristol Glen, Chatterbox, Cliff’s Ice Cream, Edible Arrangements, Forno Italiano, Georges Wine & Gourmet Gallery, Happy Wok Chinese Restaurant, Hayek’s Market, Krave Caterers, Krogh’s Restaurant & Brew Pub, Lafayette House, O’Reilly’s Pub, Perona Farms, Plates World Cuisine, Riviera Maya, Spring Street Pub & Grill, Texas Smoke BBQ, Thai Nam Phet II, and The Table.
