Meals and drinks can be enjoyed alfresco throughout town. Check out the ample community space on pedestrian Quimby Street with take-out tents, featuring red cafe tables and chairs, complete with games like cornhole, giant Jenga, and shuffleboard.

top lobster rolls
njhipsturbia A good lobster roll is hard to find but these guys hit it out of the park! Where is your 🙌🏻 NJ spot for lobster rolls?

Limani Seafood Grill 🤫 don't tell anyone! But this Westfield hidden gem has a great lobster roll. And it comes plated with TWO & a side of sweet potato fries. 🌟
greyhound & luxury mojito
eatdrinkandbe Cocktails so nice we ordered them twice. Fun Friday night sitting at the bar at Sweet Waters Steak House with my boomerang coach @tamarasaurus, discussing the merits of muddling vs slapping mint leaves for these refreshing mojitos and greyhounds.

Both drinks paired nicely with glazed salmon and green beans. Nice change from steak which I usually order here.
addictive crispy Indian street food
silver_fork_foodie If you’re a lover of crispy nachos, try this Indian-style Spinach Chaat by Spice Bazaar Modern Indian Dining

An Indian street food appetizer that is vegan & gluten-free. Masala yoghurt, red, green and tamarind chutneys, onions, tomatoes and crunchy sev are all crowd-pleasing toppings. These snack-tastic fried spinach leaves get more addictive with every bite!
lavender-infused lemonade
njhipsturbia With temperatures hitting the triple digits, we have been craving an ice-cold refreshing glass of lemonade. This lemonade infused with lavender Boxwood Coffee definitely hit the spot. 

This coffee spot is the perfect place to cool off with an iced latte, cold brew or lemonade on a summer day. We ❤️ and think you will too. And now they are serving pastries & bagels from some of our 🙌🏻 bakeries around NYC like @newyorkbagels @breadalonebakery @doughnutplant

angelatongdesigns Lemon Garlic Roasted Shrimp. Delicious and the whole family loved it. The sauce is so good. I served it over rice with sautéed broccoli. This would be great served over pasta, too. Recipe from @shutterbean. I used olive oil from Patricia & Paul's.

New menu items at The Salad House 🔥Warm Teriyaki Bowl: brown rice, peppers, broccoli, spinach, carrots, onions, and grilled shrimp sautéed with teriyaki sauce.
njhipsturbia 1958 Cuban Cuisine offers plenty of tables along South Avenue. As one of the few 🌟 Cuban restaurants around, this is a must-try for classics such as lechon asado, ropa vieja, and basically everything on their menu. We 💕 the sweet plantains wrapped in bacon 😋 BYOB but they have plenty of mixers available.

top 25 greatest sandwiches
njdotcom Top 25 Greatest Sandwiches, Ranked. #18 The Trinidad is no-frills and no-nonsense, much like the deli itself that serves it. But every friend I made in Westfield raved to me about Hershey’s Deli, Westfield, and one bite of this sandwich validated the hype. Incredibly fresh meats, served in heaping portions, with excellent toppings. I often struggle to pick between turkey and roast beef — my two favorite cold cuts — and this one has both, along with tasty Russian dressing on fresh bread. It’s similar to a Sloppy Joe, but with a submarine spin. (JS)

rah rah ramen bowl
j.on.a.journey Ramen Bowl from Inspiration Roll in Westfield. In addition to Ramen Bowls, they have Sushi Burritos and all their food is so good! This is one of my favorite places to grab a bite.
silver_fork_foodie There are three kinds of people in this world:

1. Those who live to eat Butter Chicken
2. Those who think Butter Chicken is underrated
3. Those who have never tasted Butter Chicken

The Traditional Butter Chicken at Spice Bazaar Modern Indian Dining only strengthened my faith that everyone should live to eat butter chicken and that too at Spice Bazaar Modern Indian Dining 🤤🤤

Preserving a traditional Indian classic while maintaining all of its complex flavors, is more of an art than science. Tender and juicy chicken cooked with the combination of cardamom, coriander, and cumin spices simmered with tomatoes and butter enhances each flavor to perfection!
