New Jersey is called the Garden State for a reason – so it’s no surprise that South Jersey restaurants love using local ingredients throughout their menus and changing those menus to keep up with the seasons. Check out some restaurants that enhance their menus all year long.   


Harvest Season Grill & Wine Bar


The options are endless at Harvest. Either choose one of the eatery’s staples – like the pork potstickers or local cheese board – or try one of their seasonal menu items like the autumn-spiced chicken flatbread or the autumn pot pie. There’s even a plant-based section for vegetarian diners.   


Seasons 52

Cherry Hill 

New seasons are time for new menu items, like butternut squash soup. But no matter the season, you can be sure you’ll be getting healthy and fresh food at Seasons 52, with all dishes remaining under 595 calories. 

Park Place 


It doesn’t get fresher than digging into dishes made with ingredients foraged by Park Place chef and owner Philip Manganaro. Each day’s tasting menu is designed with Manganaro’s latest forage and input from diners. 



Not only does ITA 101’s daily menu change frequently, but depending on what day you visit the Italian eatery, you can indulge in a different experience. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, stop by for a pasta tasting. On Fridays and Saturdays, explore a menu spotlighting a specific region of Italy. And on Sundays, the restaurant presents a special themed tasting menu. 




This year, Hearthside traded its traditional menu for a daily prix-fixe tasting menu that changes bi-weekly, but always features local, seasonal ingredients and its wood oven. The experience is reservation-only, and modifications for allergies are possible with advanced notice.
