History

The idea of Chop Chop Restaurant Week was conceived by a few Uptown restaurant owners and chefs who recognized the quality and uniqueness of our many dining establishments.

Saint John got its first taste of Chop Chop in the Fall of 2009 and we’ve been chopping up delicious plates ever since!

The inspired idea of offering something unique at consistent price levels caught on quickly. Restaurants recognized this as an opportunity to promote the unique and diverse dining scene. Uptown Saint John is home to many independent restaurants, all located within a few blocks and all simmering with distinct delicious tastes.

Uptown Saint John has ultimately become a dining destination with a tightly-knit cluster of establishments who compliment each other nicely.

This bi-annual event has rapidly grown in popularity and your Uptown Saint John Business Improvement Association thanks everyone involved in helping to #LiftUpLocalSJ.
