New Brunswick Is One Of The Most Diverse Culinary Destinations In The U.S.
Lots of us think of New Brunswick as a college town filled with pizzerias and bars that serve really cheap wings, but if you’ve ever spent any time in this small city, you know that it might as well be considered the dining hub of the Garden State. No matter what kind of food you’re in the mood for – you’ll find it here! Of course, there are plenty of places to get great pizza, a handful of hoagie shops, and some of the best diners in NJ are just a stone’s throw away… but try something new and you’ll have an unforgettable meal.
Plenty of people just think of Rutgers when they think of New Brunswick, but for those in the know, this little city is a foodie dream come true.
They may call it “The Hub” and “The Heart of New Jersey” for obvious geographical reasons, but there’s so much more than its mere location on the map that makes New Brunswick a vibrant Jersey pulse point. Best known as the home base of Rutgers University and its home team Scarlet Knights, the wealth of cultural, social and culinary experiences to be had demand more than a game day’s stay in the city. Consider this your study guide to this most diverse state college town — spark notes on New Brunswick, according to Jersey’s Best.

Rally Together for New Brunswick Businesses
NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – There’s no doubt that COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on the restaurants and small businesses downtown. Servers, bus boys, bartenders, managers and other back-of-the-house staff are feeling the pinch this holiday season.
In direct response, the “Rally Together” program has been launched to give those who shop and dine downtown an opportunity to support these local businesses.
