The capital of New Jersey is Trenton that boasted a population in 2010 around eighty-five thousand residents. The estimated population in 2018 was around eighty-four thousand residents. It boarders the Philadelphia metropolitan area.
The history of Trenton can be found as far back as June 3, 1719 and became the capital of New Jersey on November 25, 1790. It is known as the first military site of victory for General George Washington during the American Revolutionary War. Manufacturing was its life blood in the late nineteenth century into the early twentieth century and fell into a depression when those jobs went away. Today the largest employer is the state of New Jersey which brings in hundreds of state workers every day from the surrounding areas.
One of the areas that is seeing a revitalization is the Trenton waterfront. A restaurant called Cooper’s Review remodeled one of the older buildings to create an amazing dining experience. They have live entertainment, a popular happy hour and a full menu for even the pickiest of eaters.
Cooper’s Review was designed to hold large events in their entertainment hall, the major dining area, an amazing indoor/outdoor bar and drink area and a beautiful deck that jets out over the water. They have a stage on their deck that can accommodate national performances.
Their menu consists of recipes offered at the Marmont Steakhouse in Philadelphia which is awesome for those who do not want to drive an hour into Philadelphia. The internet evaluations give them over four stars, and they say to definitely try one of their gourmet burgers.
