Another exciting Food Tour happening in Bloomfield Center.
The first downtown Bloomfield Food Tour of the year is taking place on Saturday, July 16th from 2-4:30 PM. The rich menu of samples has flavors from all over the world - with new cuisine and some classic recipes.
This adventure for foodies through Bloomfield Centerâ€™s business district will include a guided walking tour, stopping at four restaurants for scrumptious bites. The event will provide an opportunity for guests to connect with chefs and owners and have a one-of-a-kind dining experience.
The food-filled trek will begin at Bloomfield's historic Lackawanna Train Station. A lively, experienced guide will lead the tour along with staff from the Bloomfield Center Alliance sharing information on the history of the area alongside updates on events and new developments within Bloomfield Center.
The Food Tour is one of several events highlighting Bloomfield Center this summer. Dinner Under the Stars, a popular al fresco dining event with live entertainment, that takes place on Washington Street has already begun and will run through mid-October and so has Cruise Night Car Shows which brings classic automobiles and cool tunes to Broad Street through the end of July. BCA programs such as these rely in part on corporate partners, including Clara Maass Medical Center who is the primary sponsor of the downtown Food Tours.
"We have been running food tours in Bloomfield Center since 2019 and the energy we get from attendees and the Bloomfield Center restaurateurs is just amazing," says Ollyn Lettman, Director of the Bloomfield Center Alliance. "We have two brand new restaurants joining this monthâ€™s tour and we're excited for people to get to know them."
7 Doors Down Ramen Company, one of these new stops, is a ramen shop that pairs Peruvian and Japanese flavors. The restaurant was just recently featured in North Jersey.com as one of eight North Jersey must-try restaurants.
Luis Blasini-Sanchi, head chef at 7 Doors Down shared, "We want to show Bloomfield and our diners a new experience - a blend of two cultures that many people weren't aware of. We offer a new gastronomy and dining experience for people in the area. The food that we provide is a representation of ourselves - it's simple, straight to the point and enticing. The restaurant is an open kitchen concept, we're not trying to hide anything, what you see is what you get with us. There is no hidden curtain."
