Downtown Vineland{ by Russell Swanson, Exec. Director, VDID / Mainstreet Vineland }
“Dine on Landis” runs through November 1 with a culinary ethnic melting pot.
Did you ever dream that you could travel around the world and sample the food in each country you visit? Well, we don’t have a plane or boat ticket for you, but we do have the next best thing and you don’t even have to leave Vineland or go beyond Landis Avenue!
We’re bringing back “Dine on Landis,” through Monday, November 1, and we want to show off the variety of cuisines from all over the world that you can find right here in our downtown.
As we were making a list of our restaurants and eateries for “Dine on Landis,” we saw how rich our downtown is in ethnic cuisine. We have everything from American to Chinese, from Puerto Rican and Latin to Thai and Japanese, from Italian to Turkish and Greek. That’s worth celebrating and, so, we’re doing just that. “Dine on Landis” will feature lunch and dinner specials at a dozen ethnic restaurants. The prices are right and the food is great, so pamper your tastebuds. The participating restaurants are:

  • Best of Southern Cooking (613 E. Landis Avenue)


  • Hong Kong Gourmet (705 E. Landis Avenue)

  • No. 1 Chinese Restaurant (509 E. Landis Avenue)


  • Alex’s Pizzeria & Steak House (543 E. Landis Avenue)

  • Spataro’s Pizza and Italian Specialties (Landis MarketPlace, upper level, 631 E. Landis Avenue)

  • Tony Soprano’s Pizza & Ristorante (107 W. Landis Avenue)


  • Michelle’s Kitchen & Catering (632 E. Landis Avenue)

I’ll be talking in upcoming columns about our recent field trip to Phoenixville, PA and our annual Holiday Parade, coming up on Saturday, November 28. We’re preparing for it now.
