The Timeless New Jersey Restaurant Everyone Needs To Visit At Least Once

Many New Jerseyans have been to Atlantic City and are familiar with the shore area’s less than savory past. A century ago, Atlantic City was a hotbed of illicit activity, controlled by bootleggers and mobsters. Thanks to shows like Boardwalk Empire, much of the country now knows about this resort town’s lawless legacy. While the town has changed over the years, one restaurant keeps history alive.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
