Cape May Restaurant Week lodging package

Cape May has a wealth of fine restaurants. The dilemma here is not where to find a good meal, but how to choose between all the options! Everyone's taste differs, and so the following "recommendations" should be considered merely as an introduction; the restaurants listed are just a fraction of what's available. Please click on the restaurant name to be directed to each restaurant's website where you can view menu selections and also get a feel for each establishment's individual style.
