"New Brunswick, New Jersey's top dining town as I see it, has more restaurants to which I've given four stars than any other city in the state."
- Cody Kendall, The Star Ledger
New Brunswick is a walkable city there is no shortage of amenities for the thousands of individuals who commute to New Brunswick each day, including a wide range of services, retail options, restaurant selections, entertainment and educational opportunities.
New Brunswick’s rich cultural and performing arts attractions have made it a true destination. American Repertory Ballet, State Theatre Regional Arts Center, George Street Playhouse, Crossroads Theatre Company, Mason Gross School of the Arts, Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, along with numerous other visual arts galleries all are located in New Brunswick.
The city is well known for its tremendous dining selections. In fact, there are more than 250 restaurants throughout the city ranging from simple fast food and delis to award-winning casual and four-star fine dining establishments. The culinary and ethnic variety is extraordinary, including American, Steakhouse, Thai, Chinese, Ethiopian, Japanese, Asian, Indian, Italian, South American, Vietnamese, Mexican, and Middle Eastern.
