| June BYOB

A lot has changed in Collingswood over the past year. We said goodbye to several restaurants — like the familiar Nunzio, Porch and Proper, and Constellation Collective — while others were able to survive and thrive through support from the community. With these changes in mind — and an ever-evolving dining scene in South Jersey — this list includes not only Collingswood eateries, but some deserving restaurants in neighboring Haddon Township (frequently referred to as Westmont) and Haddonfield, off the Patco Speedline.

The attractive and walkable South Jersey suburbs are culinary hotspots that offer a range of cuisines, making it well worth a trip over the bridge to find out. If you imbibe, though, bring a bottle: Collingswood and Haddonfield are dry towns.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission.

Collingswood, NJ 08108
(856) 854-9773
Visit Website

Open since the mid-’70s, this wood-paneled gem was one of the first to bring sushi to the region.

Rogelio Garcia and his family bring Puebla to Collingswood in this laid-back spot decorated with potted palms and cool white tile. The fact that he’s both local and self-taught makes even more lovable. Garcia’s enchiladas run the gamut, from his signature tres moles to rib-eye with spicy green sauce. Taco Tuesdays mean deals on barbacoa, chorizo, and the rest. Be sure to bring your own tequila to pair with the house mix.

3. Macona BBQ

Collingswood, NJ 08108
(856) 858-8719

Modern barbecue defines this casual neighborhood go-to with pink graffiti-style pigs on the wall. It’s fitting: Cory Reuss knows his way around a smoker. Reuss’s Alabama white sauce would be perfectly at home on a Southern table and the $2 cornbread is desert island good. Be sure to watch Macona’s Instagram feed for Reuss’s unique limited-time menu additions like lemongrass pork spring rolls and burnt-end cheesesteak bao buns. You can also find them Saturdays at the Collingswood farmers market slinging pulled pork breakfast burritos.

French restaurant June BYOB used to be located on East Passyunk Avenue in Philly before closing down in October of 2020 when owners Christina and Richard Cusack were struggling to make ends meet. This August, the pair reopened in Collingswood with a luxurious French menu that’s as elegant and magical as the Cusacks’ previous East Passyunk outpost. Escargot, sweetbreads, and rabbit leg are some of the haute offerings — and this go-round there is even more space to accommodate diners. Reservations are recommended and don’t forget to BYOB.

The Collingswood outpost of Philly-born bruncherie Sabrina’s is as popular as its city sisters, with a brunch-centric menu for mimosa-sipping patrons. Stuffed challah French toast is a go-to if you can take it slow afterward, or there are plenty of veggie choices if you want to keep things light and bright. Open for indoor and outdoor seating.

7. Hearthside

Collingswood, NJ 08108

The lure of Dominic and Lindsay Piperno’s destination restaurant isn’t just the open kitchen, where flames dance. It’s the synergy of a team that works together like family to execute an ambitious new American menu with old-school accents. For an appetizer, start with Hearthside’s wagyu beef carpaccio or aromatic charred gulf prawns. Take your pick from the tight homemade pasta selection before getting to that fire for the coffee rubbed pork chop, or splurge on the dry aged porterhouse. Hearthside’s modern cuisine and impeccable service remain a shining highlight in downtown Collingswood. Reservations are for indoor dining only, while outdoor seating is on a first come, first served basis.

8. McMillan's Bakery

Stepping into McMillan’s Bakery is like taking a step back in time. Established in 1939 and run by the original family to this day, McMillan’s is that perfect old school neighborhood bakery. Its famous cream donuts are the highlight here, where lines are routinely out the door. Don’t forget to try their cakes, tarts, and other varieties of classic baked goods.

Visit Website

Sahar Soleymani’s bright and casual Venezuleun restaurant pays homage to her family roots, serving up authentic cuisine like fluffy corn arepas stuffed with shredded chicken and empanadas with cilantro mojo.

(856) 477-2105
Visit Website

After Tony and Patricia Massoud’s Porch and Proper was forced to close when the pandemic hit, they pivoted and decided to revitalize their establishment into something new. Now serving the Lebanese cuisine of the Massoud’s family heritage, Li Beirut is a fine addition to the evolving Collingswood food scene. Try a variety of hot or cold mezza before grilled lamb chops or baked fish in tahini sauce. The Lebanese cotton candy is a crowd favorite as well. Reservations are recommended.

11. Zeppoli

618 W Collings Ave
Collingswood, NJ 08107
(856) 854-2670
Visit Website

When he’s not at Palizzi Social Club in South Philly, Joey Baldino honors the Sicilian side of his family tree at this Jersey BYOB. In the small, casual-but-chic space, it’s tough to stray from the Sicilian fisherman stew — pops of fennel and saffron evoke the island’s status as a culinary crossroads. Yet there’s reason to wander. Panzanella Catania leaves you wondering where salad capers and anchovies have been all your life. Tagliatelli al limone is next-level-good when topped with bottarga. For dessert, the zeppoli Siciliano are perfect. Reservations are necessary.

12. Bricco Coal Fired Pizza

128 Haddon Ave
Haddon Township, NJ 08108
(856) 477-2233
Visit Website

Bricco prides itself on its traditional coal-fueled oven that cooks at a ripping 1000 degrees. The result: thin and crispy pizzas, charred spice-rubbed chicken wings, and spicy stuffed long hots. Toppings on Bricco’s specialty pies range from burrata and prosciutto to garlic and clams. Open for indoor dining, takeout, and delivery.

13. Aunt Berta's Kitchen

(856) 858-7009
Visit Website

It’s hard to come by good soul food in the ‘burbs, but Aunt Berta’s kitchen has been providing the staples to the hungry masses for years now. The famous Jenna turkey wings, baked with cajun spices, are the favorite here, but don’t sleep on the fried fish and grits platters. Authentic sides are plentiful as well: think collard greens, macaroni and cheese, candied yams, and much more. Takeout and delivery are available.

14. Elsie's

803 White Horse Pike
Haddon Township, NJ 08107
(856) 858-7041

Over the past couple years, Elsie’s blew up as the original “Home of the Pickle Sandwich,” featured on Thrillist, Buzzfeed, and even ABC’s Strahan and Sara (Michael loved it!). This viral Haddon Township establishment caters to the keto and gluten lifestyle by swapping pickles for bread. Choose classics like the Italian or corned beef special, customize your own with a variety of options, or opt for the cucumber rollups. Elsie’s also serves bottled house-made mixers for bloody marys and the like. Open Thursday to Saturday for takeout and delivery.
