Laurita winery New Egypt -Gourmet food trucks

I was there too. It is a good time and the food is good. I must say I was underwhelmed by the red hook lobster roll. Chocolate covered bacon was pretty serious lol

Taste of smoke brisket sandwich was a winner

Why does NJ/NYC area have the best pizza?

And yes...I'm not looking to make this an NYc vs nj thing. NYc does have the best pizza per square mile so let's get that out of the way and not argue there. ; )

Why does NJ/NYC area have the best pizza?

I always here it is the water. Thoughts?

Yes there is plenty of terrible pizza around but the good stuff around here destroys other states. I do a fair amount of traveling and I literally gave up on pizza in any other states years ago.

My friends that brew tell me the water here is great for brewing too. I suppose beer is like liquid bread. Lol

Here is a cool article too http://slice.seriouseats.com/archives...

I'm interested to hear your pizza thoughts. I'm happy I live in an area with good pies.....high taxes, traffic and insurance but good pie :

Cheers

Sandwiches in Monmouth County

I'm bumping this up from the dead. Any good ones lately folks?

lately I've been getting a few good ones at giannas in Atlantic highlands. The rueben and Cuban sandwich have been some winnwrs.The "atlantic highlands" which i believe is number1, is a very solid sandwich. its a very tasty and well balanced Italian sub....great prosciutto and not over powered by a ton of salami like you normally find.

Thai Restaurants in Monmouth County

^^^ this is 100% true. I had some drunken noodles I couldn't even eat. I had a bad cell connection so I kept saying "spicy....extra hot" and she probably heard me say it a few times and thought I was nuts lol

The Coal House- Wall?

Thai Restaurants in Monmouth County

I hear you Z man. I have only been a few times but everything was decent. I like Siam garden a lot but that place is expensive compared to the Kunya siam which is closer to me. It's like 20 for a curry dish when I can get if for 11.95 (8 bucks is 8 bucks)

nice review

The fried shrimp I had were definitely tasty. I wish they did a few more creative things with some various seafood dishes. Has anyone been to Garbos by chance in Key west? (mahi tacos to die for!)

do you know what local breweries? hopefully kane and carton : )

Red Bank Redux

well I was totally wrong. When I first read the Italian new name I thought he was going to position it as a higher end place and try to get even more money per plate. Well I guess it is good that he realized lots of people are broke lol

JR: yes, their antipasti is top notch and overall, the place is on the pricier side. However, with his location and clients, he can charge a "slight" premium. Fair haven, rumson and red bank people don't balk at spending a few bucks extra on a plate. Plus, they get lots of Molly Pitcher people eating there. Slightly reducing the dish prices might just be what the doctor ordered. Vic is a smart guy. Seeing an owner react to the market is interesting. Most restaurants dont act until it is too late.

Red Bank Redux

I agree.

I wonder if the new triumph brewery is playing a role in this. To me it sounds like nothing is changing but the name and that might be due to new competition.

Red Bank Redux

interesting...I wonder why they are changing the name.

It looks like the same menu, or very similar.

I guess "brew pub" doesn't sound that fancy so this new Italian name will work. rolling eyes

Bringing this back up....

has anyone been to Patrizias? I drove by last night and it was jumping. I was wondering if this is a hound worthy spot.

It looks like they have quite a few locations

Also, has anyone been to the in between cafe lately? My buddy tells me it is decent.

good food in strange places

nice, I need to hit this place up.

joon are you a rodeio grill fan? I love that place but you need to know what to get as they will try to stuff you with cheaper cuts like roast beef, brisket, sausage, etc. Top sirloin, skirt and pork ribs are my top 3

good food in strange places

Cool, thanks for the info. Do they cook with charcoal? And if you have been to Pezao, how would you compare it?

restaurants serving skirt steak in central nj
