Our story of gastronomic excellence originated over 40 years ago. Gene Mulvihill, a Garden State native, dreamed of creating an unprecedented resort destination in the lush farmlands of Sussex County. His vision evolved into what is now our stunning 5,000-acre Crystal Springs Resort, recognized as New Jersey’s premier culinary destination.
Savor the flavors of locally grown and produced cuisine with a myriad of tantalizing choices and one common goal: to surpass your palate’s wildest dreams. With your choice of an array of indoor and outdoor restaurants, bistros, pubs, and cafes, ranging from 4-star dining at the award-winning Restaurant Latour and accompanying 135,000+ bottle Wine Cellar to the state’s newest and freshest culinary experience at the Chef ’s Garden, your dining experiences at Crystal Springs will make for delectable memories to savor.
In addition to our renowned restaurants, our culinary events attract food lovers from across the region. Special events include the New Jersey Wine & Food Festival (Spring), New Jersey Beer & Food Festival (June), Oktoberfest and Country Fest (September), and Harvest Festival (October). On a monthly basis, the property hosts guest sommelier wine dinners, wine tasting classes (first Sunday of every month), and hands-on cooking classes for kids and adults.
