Kearny Eats! kicks off Friday, June 7

One of Kearny’s most popular annual programs has returned and is in full swing.

Kearny Eats! the annual concept developed to support local Kearny-based restaurants and food businesses, sponsored by the Kearny Urban Enterprise Zone, returned June 7 and runs through June 23. During that time, customers may again take advantage of food and beverage deals and special menu items from dozens of participating food businesses — from restaurants to bakeries, to cafes, bars and more.

The KUEZ encourages residents and visitors to support these businesses.

“Eat in, get takeout or delivery, call in an order — make a difference and help our local businesses. And while you’re at it you may discover a new favorite spot,” KUEZ Coordinator Linda Kraus D’Isa said.

Participating businesses include Anthony’s Supermarket, Belweder Deli, Brazilian Spices Restaurant & Steakhouse, Curiosity by Intrinsic, Denizen’s, El Ricon Mexicano Restaurant, Hamburgao, Heavenly Bakes Pastry & Bakery, Imagine Cookies by Maya, Jimmy’s Restaurant and Lounge, Memoir Café, Mina’s Café, Natas & Bowls, Nest Café Indoor Playground, Prado’s Cheesesteak & Tacos, Q’tal Bar & Grill, Smoke Odyssey, Sol Azteca Mexican Restaurant, Stella’s Empanadas & Argentine Grill, Su-Zee’s Corner, the Crepe Escape and Vicente’s Bread Kitchen & Café.
