Retro dinner after show?

I am going to see Promises, Promises on Broadway on Sunday. Any retro cool restaurants in the area to stay with the Mad Men type vibe of the day?

Best Dish in a NJ Restaurant this Summer- What's Yours??

Cured salmon with bitter chocolate(think the inside of a carvel cake), and compressed mango at UpRoot in Warren. Close second, the lobster club bruschetta at Bin 14 in Hoboken.

I recently dined at UpRoot and quite enjoyed the service and the food. It was a quiet night and we garnered quite a bit of attention...often on slower nights the trend is to be ignored, as many servers can't be bothered. The food was mostly great, with only a few misses. I agree that my duck was lacking a bit in the 'deft touch' department of cooking. However the other components were superb. Especially worth noting was the cured salmon appetizer with the revelation of bitter chocolate, very unique, surprising and delicious. That dish was the equal of almost any I have had. Jonathan Ross was attentive, gracious and he sure knows his stuff. We started with a bottle of Cava, but wanted a glass of red to go with the main course...he asked me a few questions and delivered a pairing that was right on point. Well done sirs.
