The coronavirus pandemic has put an abrupt end to lots of town activities, from holiday parades to trick-or-treating, but nothing can dampen our love of food. And with eateries limiting capacity to 25 percent, among other guidelines, you can dine-in safely. With that in mind, the village of Ridgewood is celebrating Restaurant Week 2021 from Jan. 17–21 and again from Jan. 24–28, at which point many restaurants will be offering prix fixe menus and specials for both dine-in and take-out, lunch and/or dinner. Here, we present a roundup of which restaurants are participating and how to place your order.

The following Ridgewood eateries are offering a three-course prix fixe for $30.21 per person. Call the one you’re interested in to inquire about their menus, as most aren’t listed online:
