New Jersey Restaurant Owner Says Don't Let Valentine's Day Snowstorm Get You Down: Make Reservations This Weekend

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 15, 2007 -- Rather than spending a night out on the town, many Valentine's opted to spend their time indoors this year making the best of a snowy situation. But, Betsy Alger, Owner of The Frog and The Peach in New Brunswick, says there's still time to celebrate the lovers' holiday. "It's the perfect time to make plans for the weekend. You can stay out later and not worry about having to get up for work in the morning."

Like a number of restaurant owners across New Jersey, Alger found that diners opted to change their dinner plans and celebrate Valentine's Day in their homes rather than venture out into the snow, ice and winter weather conditions. "We received calls from people who were planning to have a special dinner out with their loved ones. But, rather than cancel their plans altogether, many of them are just going to make it a special, extended Valentine's Day weekend. It's the perfect solution."

The Frog and The Peach will be offering selections from the Valentine's Day menu as additions to the regular a la carte menu throughout the weekend.

The Frog and The Peach was the first Contemporary American fine-dining restaurant in New Brunswick which pioneered the city's downtown renaissance in the early 80's. Alger owns the restaurant with her husband Jim Black. The progressive restaurant serves modern cuisine with an international spin. The restaurant has an ongoing commitment to innovative preparations, fresh ingredients, well being and the environment. For more information, visit
