I'm new to Collingswood, so this is my first South Jersey Restaurant week (March 9-15 this year, it's been extended one day to include Saturday the 15th.) Perusing the menus online, I really liked the options at Anthony's in Haddon Heights. Do you have plans, recommendations, or anecdotes to share about restaurant week? Here's the index of restaurants participating this year:

    I'm going to the High St Grill in Mt. Holly.
    I've heard that the Tortilla Press in Collingswood is very good.

      I'm doing high street grill too - they have a veggie option for me (most don't) and good options for my SO.

      Tortilla Press is excellent. Last Friday we went to Tortilla Press Cantina (in, uh, Pennsauken? Sort of near the CH Mall), which was also great.

        I am always impressed with the Tortilla Press. I've been there a few times in the last year and it is exceptional. I tried the Tortilla Press Cantina and was dissapointed. Although the service was excellent, the food was fair and the Margaritas were the type I would expect to get at an "On the Border". It simply didn't hold a candle to the Collingswood branch. I would go again, but would prefer the original.

        Etc.

          Sunday brunch at the Tortilla Press is one of my favorite things in Collingswood. Chorizo+eggs=great way to start the day. =)

      Lots of great choices, Blackbird is outstanding and is a favorite. We're going to Ted's On Main this Saturday for the first time.
      Melange Cafe is always great and Chef Joe Brown is special.

      Tortilla Press was good last time we were there but that was a couple of years ago.

      If Japanese is for you, there is none better than Fuji with Matt Ito and we have always enjoyed Ritz Seafood. We like to take a two top on the left side of the restaurant.
      Tucked away from the crowd and much more enjoyable than the main dining area.

      Other parts of NJ should look to do something like this.

          Just had lunch at Teds on Friday. Very good; I would absolutely go back again. High Steet Grill is also very good, and the owners are really nice. I haven't tried the new Tortilla Press, but am happy to see they have a liquor license in Pennsauken.
