The Taste of Montclair kicked off the Rotary Club's fourth annual Montclair Restaurant Week on Monday evening, attracting a massive crowd that chowed down on some of the best food to be found anywhere.
Indeed, the Taste of Montclair event draws so many people that it actually had to be held at the Grove in Cedar Grove as no Montclair venue could accommodate so many ticketholders.
Over the last two years, Restaurant Week has raised nearly $15,000 for Montclair's three largest food charities: the Human Needs Food Pantry, Toni's Kitchen, and the Salvation Army Feeding Program. The event helps the needy and celebrates one of Montclair's greatest resources—its amazing restaurants.
The event's financial success is the result of the diners who enjoy Montclair's food, an incredibly dedicated volunteer committee, and the financial support of sponsors whose donations pay for the operating costs of the event.
From March 20 to April 1, the participating restaurants will offer fixed-price menus for $31 or less. One dollar from each meal will be donated to the three food charities.
Just a few of the participating restaurants are Adara, Blu, Costanera, Four Seasons, Next Door, The Office, Samba, Tapastry, Toro, and Upstairs, among others.
