Bergen County Food & Wine Festival 2018

Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza | Ramsey, NJ (plus 8 other NJ locations)

For the second year, the Bergen County Food & Wine Festival returned as Bergen County's biggest celebration of great tasting food and liquor. This year's festival took place on September 15th and 16th at Westfield Garden State Plaza. 

Saturday had showcased 'Burgers and Brews' with over 30 top local restaurants and craft beer tastings, while Sunday's focus was 'Tasting Village', with over 70 restaurants and beer, wine and spirit tastings. 

Next year, I would love to see some restaurants that serve up lighter samples such as tacos, ceviche, mussels or clams, and beet or kale salad. As tasty as it was, there were a lot of pasta and beef options. There definitely seemed to be more alcohol vendors this year, with an impressive variety from wines to tequila and vodka. 

Check out some of my favorite dishes and wine & spirits from the food festival!
