Burlington County Commissioners Kick off Restaurant Week with Visit to Family-Friendly Restaurant in Bordentown City


Burlington County Restaurant Week is launched and dozens of restaurants across the county are participating.

Hosted by Burlington County Commissioners and State Senators Dawn Marie Addiego and Troy Singleton, the week-long event is designed to showcase and promote the wide variety of Burlington County restaurants and encourage residents across the region to support them.

Burlington County Commissioner Director Felicia Hopson and Commissioner Tom Pullion kicked off the week with a visit to Marcello’s Coal Fired Restaurant and Pizza in downtown Bordentown City on June 22.

The family-run restaurant has been one of the stars of the county’s culinary scene for 17 years. It is located at 206 Farnsworth Ave., Bordentown.

“Restaurants are more than just a place to eat, drink or relax. These are the places where we meet as a family and where we meet friends and neighbors. They are employers and job creators, and they draw people to our main streets and downtown shopping districts. These businesses also give back to their neighbors and their communities, ”Hopson said in a prepared statement. “Burlington County is fortunate to have so many wonderful restaurants and we want to support them and their employees. “

Throughout the week, county commissioners and senators plan to highlight participating restaurants with tours and social media posts, and many participating restaurants also offer special menus, dishes and discounts.
