The Pluckemin Inn....not so good

Today on Rosie's Chef's on the Move list he was listed; he left right after New Years Eve.

DC Hound needs help in/near Cape May Xmas weekend

I've been vacationing in Cape May for about 15 years now both on and off season and it is always difficult in the off season especially when some restaurants close for the season. Cape May has definitely become more all year round town because they have so many festivals year round now.
The Black Duck, on Sunset Blvd in West Cape May, I've had good experiences there, I think that they might be open year round, at least their website doesn't indicate otherwise. Copperfish on Broadway might also be open year round. The Blue Pig Tavern in Congress is open year round as well. I have never been so I can't say either way. I have always had a good experience at the Peter Shields Inn as well. Tisha's is also open year round. The Mad Batter for Breakfast/Brunch.
Here is a link from capemay.com. I don't if all the restaurants are listed but its also a good start. http://www.capemay.com/restaurants/#a...
If I can think of anything else I will let you know.

Chutney & Co in Madison

Has anyone tried this Indian place yet? They took over the old Top Notch/4Park Trattoria spot. I haven't been yet but their menu seems authentic.
Any thoughts?

Cooking Class / Cooking School in or around Somerset County

I know that most adult schools offer some sort of cooking lesson/ classes. I'm not sure which one near to her but you could consider that as well. I know the Chatham Adult School offers varying classes as well as Montclair(probably too far for her).

Restaurant and Gourmet Supply Stores?

Yep. It's their only location but they still have a warehouse in Livingston/Florham Park /East Hanover I think to store everything but its not open to go in. They don't have a lot of room in the storefront but they do in the warehouse.
Was talking to the owners and if there is something that you want specifically call ahead and they can get it from the warehouse to bring to the store.

Restaurant and Gourmet Supply Stores?

Just found out Bridge opened a small storefront in Madison. Went yesterday, not like going to the big warehouse but definitely still jammed pack with goodies

Pig Wings....

You can get them at Rob's Bistro in Madison on Tuesday nights, except they put on the menu Pork "Osso Bucco". Had it last week for the first time, definitely impressed.
I would love to see this start popping up all over the place.

Need some recs for xmas gift certificate: dinner for two in Maplewood area or nearby

I second Giotto and would also look into Salute in Montclair, went once and was very impressed. There is also Resto & Rob's Bistro in Madison, only about 20-25 minutes from Maplewood. I've never been to Arturo's but have heard good things about their tasting menu.

Farm 2 Bistro Rockaway Closed :(

Never ate there but just saw this morning on Table Hopping with Rosie on njmonthly.com that Farm 2 Bistro is closed and the chef is pursuing other things, including his catering business.

Where to bulk buy canning tomatoes?

The past view years, we have gotten our tomatoes from Alsted Farms in Chester. For us they are close being that we usually start with about 15 bushels and always want more so we can always just go pick up more. (I have a large family)

Group dinner For 40 in somerset, union, Hudson, morris, or Essex?

Hopefully I'm not too late.. I just went to Salute in Montclair, on Glen Ridge Ave. I must say I was truely impressed, I don't usually do Italian food since most Italian restaurants in the area aren't true Italian. But they did a fabulous job, we were a large group and ordered a lot of food, everything was delicious! There's also Rob's Bistro in Madison, which is a go to restaurant for me since I live in Madison but I don't think they have a private room. I think Uproot may be a little out of the price range from what I can remember from when I went.

Help with birthday dinner for me and Mr. diva, please! Summit area/Union County restaurants!

I've been to A Tout Heure and Lorena's. Both great restaurants. A Tout Heure is more casual than Lorena's. Being that you seem to be going with a French theme, Resto in Madison is also very good. Resto & Lorena's, I think are your best choices.
