Here we go with a second batch of restaurant specials to look out for as well as businesses showing their generosity to the community in these trying times:
Teak (Red Bank) and the Bistro at Red Bank spent the last few days cooking up the remainder of their food and donating it. They took suggestions for prospective organizations on their Facebook page. The post received nearly 500 shares.
Do you love the Barnacle Bill’s (Rumson) Long Island Iced Tea as much as me? Well, now you can make it at home. With restaurants allowed to sell booze to-go (packaged only, not mixed cocktails or open containers), BB’s is offering a “DIY LIT” kit. For $100, it includes a bottle each of vodka, gin, rum, and triple sec, along with lemons, sour mix, and Coca Cola.
While Restaurant Nicholas has been selling out takeout orders, the Nicholas Creamery (Atlantic Highlands) is going to temporarily close up shop. Tonight (Saturday) will be their last night in operation. Pints of ice cream are available at the discounted price of $6.
Woody’s Ocean Grille (Sea Bright) is now offering a “Pay What You Can” menu. While the suggested price for items on the limited menu is $10, people can choose to spend what they can afford. Much like JBJ’s Soul Kitchen (Red Bank), if you can afford to chip in a little more, it would probably be highly appreciated.
Drifthouse (Sea Bright) by David Burke will now deliver to within a 10-mile radius, and is giving a $25 gift card for every $100 spent, to be used at a later time.
In a generous move, Demarco’s Catering and Gourmet Deli (Aberdeen) has lowered prices on cold cuts, chicken cutlets, steaks, and jarred sauce in order to lessen the financial blow of people stocking up in these uncertain times.
Middletown is drumming up business in a move called “Takeout Thursdays”, which is encouraging people to order from their favorite local restaurants on Thursdays, or consider the purchase of a gift card to use when things get back to normal: the restaurant can use your money now, and you can reap the reward at a later date.
Lastly, I always like to include one out-of-state post from restaurants I have visited in my travels. The Bull’s Head Pub and General Sutter Inn (Lititz, PA) are giving 100% of all gift cards sales directly to their employees “who have never complained, and have made the Bull’s Head the incredible place it is today”.
