New Jersey is home to many incredible, unique restaurants. We’re also home to years of history. When fine dining and local history mix, it makes for an interesting combination. As you sit and enjoy your meal, you’ll be taking a bite out of the past. Imagine all of those who stood in the same spot and the varied lives they’ve lived. It’s not only fun to think about, but you’ll get a delicious meal while doing it.

Of course there are many other New Jersey dining spots rich in history, but the details aren’t always easy to come by. For example, Barnsboro Inn in Sewell was established in 1720 and licensed in 1776, but not much else is known. What is your favorite historic hotspot in New Jersey?
