The West Morris Macaroni Kid Guide to Local Restaurants

A roundup of our favorite local eateries, something for everyone!

By Macaroni Kid West Morris March 5, 2020

A bit more than a year ago, we began our restaurant of the month program - in exchange for promotion and an honest review, several Morris County restaurants gladly opened their doors to us for a complimentary family (or date night) meal.  This guide features those restaurants, along with a detailed account of our experiences there.  If you would like to submit your favorite restaurant to our guide, or if you are an eatery who'd like to book a review, please contact

Happy eating!  XOXO Elisa & Amanda
