Downtown Somerville Restaurant Experience

Downtown Somerville Restaurant Experience Welcome to Dine Downtown Somerville, where culinary delights await at every turn! Nestled in the heart of Central New Jersey, our vibrant downtown district pulses with the energy of a community passionate about food, culture, and connection. As the proud stewards of this gastronomic haven, the Downtown Somerville Alliance (DSA) invites you to embark on a culinary journey like no other. From cozy bistros serving up traditional Italian fare to trendy fusion restaurants blending flavors from around the globe, our dining scene is as diverse as it is delicious. But downtown Somerville is more than just a collection of restaurants – it's an experience. It's the joy of discovering your new favorite dish at a hidden gem tucked away on a side street. It's the laughter of friends sharing small plates and stories late into the evening. It's the satisfaction of supporting local businesses and savoring the flavors of our community. And what better way to experience it all than during one of our much-anticipated restaurant week events? Throughout the year, the Downtown Somerville Alliance orchestrates these culinary celebrations, where participating restaurants roll out special menus, prix-fixe offerings, and exclusive culinary experiences. It's the perfect opportunity

Our bicycle recipients don’t just receive a bike; they also receive a new future. Your donation will hugely impact and completely change the life of a member of our community. We’ll be holding a two-day bike drive to accept your bike donations!
