Around the World in Cranford, NJ
Maybe you’re in the mood for souvlakia at Ambeli Greek Taverna. Or perhaps you could go for an order of shakshuka at Oasis Restaurant. And it’s quite possible that you’ll end any meal with a dark chocolate mousse macaron from Délice Macarons. A seemingly endless list of eateries may be rooted in lands far from the Jersey coast, but these up-and-coming hot spots all have one thing in common: Cranford.
Over the past few years, Cranford’s dining scene has exploded. These days, people travel from far and wide to enjoy any number of cuisines in the Union County community. If you haven’t been there, now’s the time to pay Cranford a visit: Restaurant Week kicks off Sunday, February 23.
