PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Three new Tiffin Restaurants will be opening in New Jersey beginning in September.

Munish Narula, owner of the Narula Restaurant Group, says their new locations — something carefully selected — include Cherry Hill, Vorhees and East Hanover.

“It’s more the education, travel — so we look at the demographics in a slightly different manner. We also look at the breakdown of age. We find that younger people are more likely to eat and be adventurous or if they have never tried it before be more likely to say, ‘Okay, let’s go there’s a new indian restaurant let’s go try it; or another new ethnic restaurant let’s go try it’.”

Lincoln Financial Field renovates its club level, adding new restaurants and offerings just in time for football season.

Gabriel Montalvo, Aramark sous chef and concessions executive at the Linc, says among the many new options, they’re adding a Pizzeria Vetri to the mix:

“We’re doing the margharita taglio-style pizza. We’re also doing the salchicha-style pizza. We’re also featuring their rotolo. It’s almost like and inverted stromboli all baked in our new wood-fire oven.”

And a new taqueria opens on South Street in September, melding together Thai and Mexican cuisines.

Chef Alex Boonphaya and a partner are set to open Tuk Tuk Real at 429 South Street mid-month:

“We’re gonna be using a lot of thai-based ingredients — lemongrass, basil, thai chilies, galanga, a lot of herbs. Since Mexican food has a lot of flavors that we use such as salt and lime it blends very well.”
