Oriental Empire in Red Bank

Has anyone been yet? I am guessing it will be somewhat "americanized" but I am interested in hearing some opinions.

I went last night for the first time...two thumbs up!

Has anyone had the frog legs here? I am thinking of that next time, or the whole fried fish.

Route 35 Steak and Ale building

Does anyone know why a license is so expensive? I see other states where anyone under the sun can sell booze practically.

I wonder the same thing. I bet some of the more popular chains would do fine there like olive garden, pf changs, cheesecake factory, etc.

nice! I am glad you liked it. That is strange regarding the antipast. Last time ours was great. It was a dead monday night I think and they served us (4 guys) quite a spread. Maybe it was even a double order...who knows.

Did you happen to see any of those monster pork chops come out of the kitchen?

Woody's (of Sea Bright) opening a location in Tinton Falls

I never thought of that. You are definitely right on the money there.

I have only been to woodys twice. The second time I got roped into going and didn't choose it.

The food to me is just super bland. I never had a bad time or bad food...just boring. Then again, maybe that is what they are going for....just kind of the "surf taco" attitude where they dump pretty tasteless food onto the masses and live on the numbers game.

The pico de gallo is like eating chopped up tomatoes. The last time I had tacos al pastor and ANY of the red bank mexican joints make a much better version for less money (obviously without the decor.) On a positive note, I do like that building in sea bright with the exposed beams. I had some good drinking nights there years and years ago.

So in summation, you may think it is ok but for my palate it lacks flavor/spice/ingenuity. Try to keep an open mind though. I only had my two dishes and sampled two of my wife's so I am only 4 dishes deep (for what it's worth.) Maybe they will change things up a little with the new spot.

Drews 3 course meal, just learned about this

I heard Gardenia grill closed as well. That place was another hazlet/holmdel border spot that had some great food. It's a shame a lot of these places can't stay afloat.

JR, yeah that issue with the floor is still there but it wasn't cold, or at least I was not.

Mark, I went to catch again and tried the angry lobster/shrimp. That was a solid app! Dipping that bread in there was quite delicious.

Seal, get on it.....trust me :) I didn't even finish it but I seriously wanted to. That is definitely some good eating for 35 bucks.

He is in a new location....old one got trashed.

Mr Bingley, that carbomb dessert was something else right? Man, I need to get back soon.

Jr, it was dead on a monday so no headaches with their "reservation" requests.

Drews 3 course meal, just learned about this

I might be out of the loop on this but....

Drews has a 3 course meal for 35 a head. This was a good dining night! I won’t make this too long winded but I would recommend this for some good food at a reasonable price. For those worried about calories, this is not your place ;)

It is mon-Thursday and includes some good choices. The waiter told me it is temporary to get people in there on some slower/colder nights so I am not sure how much longer it will be around.

As for food, I know he changes things up so keep that in mind. Smoked mozz mac-n-cheese with short rib was a real treat. I could feel my arteries hardening as I ate this. Creamy, smokey but not over the top, and some nice texture with the breadcrumbs...well done. The other app was a pork rillette (pulled pork cake fried to a crispy perfection.) The presumably house made pickles on the side and Dijon with toast paired well and I loved this dish. There is nothing like taking some unhealthy pork and frying it up for extra flavor lol. I love his style.

Dishes were the crab cake, which many of you know, and “chicken n waffles” with a jalapeno maple jus. Half an organic bird was served on top of a nice size waffle. A nice slice of thick cut bacon or two would have really complimented this dish nicely.

The carrot cake and the “car bomb” Sunday finished strongly. Guinness ice cream was topped with jameson caramel and a charred marshmallow. This was truly a spectacular dessert and I am not a sweets guy. Overall, this was a good night and not bank breaking.

Give it a shot.

Poached Pear Bistro for dinner

my boss says this place is legit. It's on my list.

Prosecco, Port Monmouth, Gone?

This place Crustini is open (well at least there were a bunch of cars in the parking lot and it looked open)

Some one hit wonder on yelp claims it is the same owner and gave them a one star. People crack me up. So take that for what it's worth.

Outstanding Shanghaiese food in Edison- WOW!

nice! Sockster what do you recommend at Shanghai bun? I might go there tonight.

I wonder what it will look like when renovated. I think part of the charm is walking in and feeling like you stepped back in time.

On the red bank theme, what's up with triumph? (Any ETA on that?)

yeah that place is iconic. Let me know what you find out. Apparently now that it's shut down my dad was saying tommy's has been packed.

Hopefully it's temporary and they open back up.
