Cherry Hill’s first venture into hosting a restaurant week was scheduled at the perfect time for Caffe Aldo Lamberti.
“We pride ourselves on having the freshest ingredients. We love using fresh fruit and vegetables, and with the event being in August, we really can feature the ingredients of the season,” Aldo Lamberti’s Family of Restaurants marketing coordinator Denise Earle said.
The restaurant’s menu for the week reflects that.
“We’ll feature a really nice, really fresh tomato gazpacho. Our homemade shrimp raviolone is really fantastic. Our chefs get really creative each season with our raviolone, using fresh shrimp or crab or short rib depending on the time of year. A lot of our dishes will feature the fruit and vegetables of the season, fresh corn, fresh tomatoes,” Earle said.
That includes dessert. A blueberry cobbler a la mode.
“We’ve featured it before and it is really popular with guests. August is the perfect time for us to be able to make it for our guests using fresh blueberries and vanilla ice cream,” Earle said.
Though Caffe Aldo Lamberti has been a landmark in Cherry Hill for more than 25 years,
Earle said she is hopeful that restaurant week will bring in first-time guests from Cherry Hill and neighboring townships.
“Cherry Hill is such a great community and it’s been amazing to be a part of it for so long.
There are a lot of great restaurants in the area, in Collingswood and Haddonfield, in Atlantic City. We’re happy to be a part of that and we want to show that to our guests,” Earle said.
“We want to give our guests a new experience. We are looking to show them what we can do.”
