Chicken Fried Steak

If you want something kind of similar a lot of Brazilian restaurants served fried steaks. I know it's not quite the same but just tossing an idea out : )

Prosecco, Port Monmouth, Gone?

Nothing has ever survived in that location for long. Werent they opening a second place in the old clam hut location?

Restaurants you despise, but continue to dine at anyway.........

MGZ, do you remember ten cent wing mondays there? on man, those were some good times.

Portofino Resto Tinton Falls

JR, on the byob topic I hit Angelicas on wednesday for another killer pork chop....just a beast of a cut. Try the antipast....top notch!

The boss man got one as well. Check out the size of his. Pic didn't come out great but hopefully you can gauge the size. That is why he has his fork positioned like that.

Ocean View Bakery, Long Branch

Joon, I have been going there so long Joanne speaks to me in italian....and I don't even speak italian! HAHA! I just nod my head and pretend to understand her....dead serious.

The cash register is hilarious. I don't even know what decade its from. 30s maybe?

Catching CATCH in Red Bank again

JR, Yeah we might just have to do this. The ribeye is pretty tasty and at 35 bucks, not a bad price.

I have never had a lobster over 5lbs but I can honestly say the larger ones were not chewy. I also think that price is fair for red bank NJ. The maine ones I get in the 3.5 - 4lb range are 60ish at restaurants up there (not lobster pounds but decent "sit down" restaurants.)

I actually wanted to get up and check out the shell on that monster. He was sitting on ice displayed....probably freezing his cojones off LOL

If it was a hardshell that price is pretty darn fair considering you don't have many options around here to experience gluttony like this.

135 for the 7lb...not cheap but definitely a dining experience I would imagine.

Catching CATCH in Red Bank again

This place is legit. I will write more when I get some time but did anyone see those monster lobsters? They had a 7 pounder! Next time I am taking one of those down. They told me you can call and order one a few days in advance. This way they can guarantee they have a big one for you on the weekends.

Bgut, my ribeye had a bone and I definitely enjoyed it.

Nice review!

Jr, are you talking about the lambo and lotus evora? Both are there frequently.

Some questions for my NJ friends about our home board...

It has been kind of stagnant with new posts.

I wish they would update their platform. This site feels like I'm in 2002

Moose's Tavern Tinton Falls (Old Charlie Browns)

bland is an understatement. any of the "hole in the wall" mexican places in red bank blow this place away. I will say I do like the actual building with its exposed beams....pretty cool venue.

Colt's Neck Inn vs Lincroft Inn

Hands Down- Best BYOB in Central Jersey?

+1 for Belford bistro. Jake start a Monmouth county one up. People will chime in.

Colt's Neck Inn vs Lincroft Inn

Jr , are you a duck guy? Last time I had a great spicy duck dish. It was on special.

I wonder if Sebastian Bach is still rolling bones outside the lincroft inn? Lol

Hands Down- Best BYOB in Central Jersey?

Nice, I had a steak there one time and it was pretty good. I might hit the Beach Tavern tonight to try that double cut porkchop fatboy mentioned the other day. He seems to know his way around a cut of meat so I have some good expectations.

JR, try the pork chop at harborside. Its actually really good! Their food is average but this dish is a winner. I sub out the potato pancakes for mashed and for like 20 bucks it's a strong dish.

Tapeo: modern portuguese/Spanish in hazlet

I have not. I am a HUGE fernandes 2 fan and my parents and family all tell me 3 is good. I just haven't gotten around to it yet for some reason. I have been invited several times too and just didnt get there yet for one reason or another.

I looked online for a menu but didn't see one to Tapeo.

Tapeo: modern portuguese/Spanish in hazlet

I got a coupon in the mail today and it is listed as "modern Spanish and portuguese cuisine."

Yelp has a few good reviews but I don't have much faith in yelp. Has anyone been? This would be a big plus to have locally instead of hitting Newark or even costa verde. I doubt it will live up to my iconic choices up north but hopefully it's decent.

The coupon said 9.00 express lunch. I am intrigued. It's next to holiday inn across from pep boys in hazlet (rt 35)

Clam Pizza in NJ

JSFein, Luigis in lincroft does clam pies and they would make you one like you want.

Recommendation for favorite Korean BBQ in NJ

I am not a Korean expert but Kim Chi hana is worth a try.

On this topic, what are options in monmouth county? (joon...need help)

The Food's Great, So Why Is the Place Empty?

Jr or joon, have either of you tried neelam in Middletown? It's not too far from me and it's been around for many years so I think it's probably half decent.

I will chime back in on this thread but watching the pats game now.

your favorite "north of the border" dishes? (red bank)

Good stuff, glad you like it. I think the chorizo tacos are awesome. I have to get there more in 2015 and try more dishes. They have a pretty large menu.

milanesa de res is probably my next dish, or one of those monster 11 dollar soup bowls.

Monmouth County - Best of Last Year?

Nice...as I mentioned to JR ealier, Angelicas serves it with broccoli rabe for some reason. I get mashed and green beans instead. I don't think the broccoli pairs well with the chop.

I am interested in your comparison, if I don't get over to beach tavern first LOL

Tapas, good call on the local smoke jalapenos. they are awesome! I have to try the salsa place soon too.

Monmouth County - Best of Last Year?

I was waiting for you to chime in. Try the veal and peppers at Ocean View. She doesnt have it every day but its good when she does make it. You have to ask her as she keeps it on the stove in the back.

I have to get over to Remingtons next time I visit my buddy in sqauan.

Fatboy, have you had the double cut pork chop at angelicas? It is not on the menu (special item.) If so, how do you compare it to Beach Tavern.

I had a 14oz bone in veal chop last night at Sirena....pretty damn good...incredibly tender.

Civilie Cucina.....Main St. Metuchen

Nice, that is a good ribeye! It's expensive but it's hard to find a great fatty steak like that around here. I would say that was probably the third best ribeye I had this year (other two were out of state.)

make sure you save enough room to eat the 2 rib back bones off that Angelica's pork chop ; ) (seriously lol)

Also, check out my NOTB thread and chime in.

Civilie Cucina.....Main St. Metuchen

Jeez,that that is impressive! That is a dish worth taking a picture of for sure. I don't get over there much but I would love to check this out. nicely done. were those peppers spicy?

I would love to hear your take on the Angelica's chop. I think you will be impressed but definitely ditch the broccoli rabe lol
