The 30 Best Restaurants in New Jersey 2019 According to New Jersey Monthly

Congrats to Chez Catherine for making this distinguished list, again! "Modern French cooking is alive and agile at Chez Catherine. So are the charm and warmth the late Catherine Alexandrou brought to the restaurant when she founded it in 1979. Owner Stephane Bocket, maître d' Robert Madden and chef Christine Migton are fully in sync. In a comfortable, home-like dining room, where white tablecloths bespeak hospitality rather than hauteur, Bocket and Madden are alert to your needs, but not intrusive. Migton's food, from duck breast with raspberry coulis to Dover sole filleted tableside, is sumptuous and satisfying, light enough to leave room for her classic desserts. Soufflés, worth the $5 upcharge, may be the gustatory equivalent of sailing in a balloon over the Seine. 431 North Ave. W., 908.654.4011. Read

DWC Awarded Transformation Grant from Main Street New Jersey Program

DWC Awarded Transformation Grant from Main Street New Jersey Program

Downtown Westfield Corporation (DWC) recently received a Transformation Grant from the Main Street New Jersey (MSNJ) Program and will use the $20,000 grant award to partially fund a mural at the South Avenue circle underpass.

This year marks the first time in its 30-year history that the MSNJ Program has awarded grants to designated MSNJ district organizations around the state. The grant funding is part of a larger effort by the Murphy Administration and the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA), which administers MSNJ, to commit more resources to community revitalization programs that focus on small businesses and neighborhood improvement projects.

“Downtown business districts play such an important role in the economic and social health of our communities, which is why Governor Murphy and I have invested significant resources in the Main Street New Jersey Program,” said Lt. Governor Sheila Y. Oliver, who serves as DCA Commissioner. “This investment includes awarding Main Street grants for the first time ever to help downtowns with improvement projects, placemaking, and transformation strategies. All of these grant-funded activities are scheduled to be completed by year’s end and we can’t wait to see how they positively impact downtowns around the state.”

The mural represents the work of Ricardo Roig, local artist and creator of the images of Westfield.  It is designed to connect the South side and North side separated by the train and be a platform for additional public art in the future. 

According to Sherry Cronin, DWC Executive Director, and applicant for the grant, stated “I’m pleased that I was able to acquire this grant on behalf of Downtown Westfield. Main Street NJ has been very supportive over the years with grant opportunities and zero percent loans for improvements to the district.”.
