Food is one of the few things that can really bring people together. Sometimes people use eating as a way to socialize, and some have even turned eating into a career or a professional sport.
So can you believe that among the million-plus restaurants in the United States? Some of the very best are located right here in New Jersey!?
Each year the online crowdsource review site Yelp publishes its top restaurants across the United States. They gather the data through user submissions and other cultural factors such as geographic representation, ratings, reviews, etc.
You’ll be glad to know Jersey had three locations this year within the top 100. This is an increase from Yelp’s 2022 list in which only two Garden State restaurants were honored.
With such a wide variety of food types having even one place featured is a win in my book. It certainly goes to show that New Jersey residents know a thing or two about food.
This year’s winners included Jessica’s Café(40) a delightful Italian and French fusion located in Plainfield. Kenko Sushi(78) over in Lincoln Park which offers quality sushi rolls. Lastly, Nicholas Anthony’s Family Kitchen(88) right in West Orange makes you feel like a part of the family as they offer up some Italian cuisine.
You really can’t go wrong with any of the three ranked Jersey locations, but maybe you’re planning a road trip across the Great Garden State so why not hit all three? This is the 10-year anniversary since Yelp started its annual listing. You know the competition was fierce, so if you’re even traveling out of state here is 100 of the best eating establishments this year according to Yelp.
