ELIZABETH, N.J., Jan. 12, 2016 — For the first seven days of each month in 2016, diverse cultural cuisine will be served at discount prices in restaurants participating in Elizabeth Restaurant Week. Price-fixed menus will enable patrons to try local restaurants at savings of 10 to 25 percent.

The 2016 restaurant week promotional event is organized by the Elizabeth Destination Marketing Organization (EDMO), also known as GoElizabethNJ. A complete list of participating restaurants will be available at http://www.goelizabethnj.com/restaurantweek.

"Reservations are highly recommended and should be made by calling the establishment directly," said Lauren Ferrigno, EDMO's marketing coordinator. "However, the Elizabeth Restaurant Week menu is available to all guests, including walk-ins. This monthly promotion will highlight the diversity of Elizabeth's culinary choices, and we encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to take their taste buds on an adventure by trying new foods and expanding their palates."

With one of every five of its residents born outside the United States, New Jersey ranks among the most diverse states in the nation. The participating restaurants were chosen to reflect this diversity. Each establishment also had to meet standards for cleanliness, service and quality of cuisine. Each participating restaurant must offer a minimum of two choices for appetizers, entrees and desserts. For restaurants interested in participating, applications are still being accepted through the Contact Us page on GoElizabeth.com.

Among Elizabeth's 2016 Restaurant Week participants will be the Lobby Sports Bar, the First Republic Lounge and Restaurant, Eli's Pizza and Pasta, and the Newarker Restaurant and Amelia’s Lounge.

Located at 821 Spring Street, the Lobby Sport is known for its authentic American-Latin cuisine plus a vast array of foods served late into the night. From Colombian Picasa to the bacon and cheddar Smoke House Burger, guests can savor the finest of both worlds in a setting reflective of nearby Manhattan. The Lobby’s new Penthouse also features top Latino artists and disc jockeys from local radio stations.

First Republic Lounge and Restaurant, at 1204 E. Grand Street, is inspired by Haiti, the first Western Hemisphere nation to liberate itself from slavery. Both the lounge and restaurant showcase Haitian food and the art and culture of the Caribbean to create a unique environment for guests.

Dolce Lounge is centrally located at 17 Broad Street, and the energetic atmosphere provides modern Italian fare as well as Taco and Tapas Tuesdays. With karaoke on Wednesdays and several screens for game nights, there's always something happening at Dolce Lounge.

The Felix family at Eli's Pizza and Pasta, located at 766 Turnbull Street, makes their own cheese and stuffed shells on the premises. Their specialty is authentic pizza, with the family history tracing back to Sicily in the 1930s. With high-quality products imported from Italy, this family restaurant delivers.

At 1170 Spring Street, the Newarker Restaurant and Amelia’s Lounge is located off the lobby of The Hilton Hotel. They offer a wide variety of savory specialties including steaks, seafood, pasta and sandwiches.
