A spread of Lebanese food at Li Beirut in Collingswood, New Jersey. | Li Beirut
Just across the Delaware River from Philly, Collingswood, Haddon Township, and Audubon have a stellar dining scene all their own
The South Jersey dining renaissance is here. Exciting restaurants are percolating along the suburban New Jersey streets of Collingswood, Haddon Township, and Audubon, within a 15-minute drive or an 11-minute ride on the PATCO Speedline light rail from Philly. Enjoy towering burgers in a retro setting, splurge on duck a la flambé prepared tableside, and enjoy some of the region’s best sushi and Italian.
Pro tip: Like the neighboring dining destination of Haddonfield, Collingswood is a dry town, but all of its restaurants are BYOB. In order to have an alcoholic drink with dinner, be sure to bring your own bottle — perhaps an interesting wine from one of Philly’s coolest bottle shops?
