Whether your ancestors settled here long ago (like some of mine), your great-grandparents stepped off a boat onto Ellis Island (like the rest of mine), or you or your parents landed at Newark Airport, every Jersey family tree was planted somewhere else.

New Jersey is the perfect place to be if you are an adventurous eater and good with maps. My obsessive research whenever asked, “Where should we eat?”, and an instinctive reluctance to ask for directions, led to EthnicNJ.com. I scour the state and the web for the best restaurants, and map them by cuisine. Restaurants that make it onto the map are ones I’ve visited (and liked) or that get positive reviews from multiple sources. This is the food guide I’ve always wanted — the best food in Jersey, in one place, on one map, with links to the reviews I found helpful.
Since EthnicNJ launched in 2010, the site has become an indispensable tool for hungry Jersey food fans, mapping over 1000 restaurants serving more than fifty different cuisines. Thank you to everyone who has visited, contributed and commented, helping me find and mao New Jersey’s best food.
EthnicNJ, based in Maplewood (Essex County), explores New Jersey’s food landscape statewide – from Sussex to Cape May, from the Atlantic to the Delaware. There’s more delicious food in New Jersey than one person could ever find, let alone eat. Help EthnicNJ find the best food in the Garden State. If your favorites are not on the EthnicNJ map, e-mail me (Anthony@EthnicNJ.com) or share them in the cuisine comments.
Thanks for visiting.
