Egg Harbor City hosts International Taste of the Town

Chef Joe DeGennaro of Joseph’s Restaurant at Tuscany House Hotel in Egg Harbor City is preparing pepper-seared tuna with teriyaki glaze and pickled vegetables for the event.

Prepare those taste buds, because Egg Harbor City will be hosting its first-ever International Taste of the Town Sunday, April 29.

Starting at 4 p.m., guests will be able to sample dining from 14 restaurants and eateries from around town at Egg Harbor City Ambulance Hall. The restaurants include everything from Chinese to Italian to Puerto Rican and American offerings.

Live music will also be on hand to keep everyone entertained. The all-girl rock band Blondage and local singer-guitarist Scott Senn will be playing at the event.
