The idea of Chop Chop Restaurant Week was conceived by a few uptown restaurant owners and chefs who recognized our quality and unique dining establishments. Saint John got it’s first taste of Chop Chop in the Fall of 2009 and we’ve been chopping up ever since.
The inspired idea of offering something unique at consistent price levels caught on quickly. Restaurants recognized this as an opportunity to promote our unique and diverse uptown dining scene. Home to approximately 25 independent restaurants, all located within a few blocks, uptown is simmering with distinct delicious tastes at varying price levels. Uptown has ultimately become a dining destination with a tightly-knit cluster of eating establishments who compliment each other nicely.
We look forward to this bi-annual event continuing to grow in popularity and mouth-watering anticipation.
