I don't know about you but I  LOVE to eat.

 

I don't know if I consider myself a foodie, but there are few restaurants in the Morris County area I haven't tried. I get sooooo excited when something new opens too. My husband and I try very hard to make Saturday nights our date nights- that’s when we truly explore what's new and what’s Delish! I'll do my best to keep up with new openings and be your guinea pig. Here's a list of some of my favorites in Morris County. I'm getting hungry just writing this!

If you see 'KF' next to the restaurant that means it's totally kid- friendly!

1/9

Do you have a great food spot that I'm missing?

Let me know and I'll add it to the list!
