NJ-4 W & NJ-17 N - Family Friendly & Simple & Cheap

Agree that 17 can be sparse of your requirements. Take 4W to Saddle river Rd. in Fair Lawn. As soon as you hit the bottom of the ramp, bear right...Oceanos is on your right. Great seafood. Not far off the highway.

Whatever Happened to Roquefort Dressing in Restaurants?

Agreed on the "vodka martini" response. Not a snob, but a purist...prefer the 4 to 1 gin/vermouth with an olive. Seeing cutesy martini lists in restaurants is big turnoff to me. Also, I like the old gray haired bartender in the red vest, black bow tie who wipes the bar, serves drinks and does not try to be funny or sociable. But that's just me.

What's up with the price of Mayonnaise?

From the producer's perspective, I believe the spiraling cost is due to the increase in prices of chicken feed...corn especially. Higher prices roll down hill. Corn...chickens....eggs...mayo...

Hawthorne - I think - A long time ago

Anyone remember a place called Fricke's? Spelling, I'm not so sure, but I remember my folks talking about it many years ago.

Deep fried hotdog with buns, do those have a name?

Yes, you're right. Rippers are, at least in my experience, at Rutts Hutt in No. NJ. But as CD below points out, they're not cooked IN the bun, but fried. After spending some time in Japan, I don't think I remember even seeing any form of an American style hot dog anywhere. But then, I wasn't really looking.

Best diners in NJ

If I'm not mistaken, the Arena was once known, many years ago, as Charcoal Corners...if any of the older CH'ers remember that.

Where are the Northern Jerseyans?

Been there a few times over the years. Decor hardly ever changes...neither does the help. Can't say anything about how food is recently, but I look forward to going back. Always had a pleasant experience there.

Huy Fong's garlic/chili paste. I'll even bring it to a restaurant.

Best canned soups?

As a rule, I'll stick with MOST Progresso varieties as national brands go. Some of the smaller, lesser known ones are pretty good, but with so many to choose from it's hit and miss.

Shrimp on pizza, yes or no?

Not on traditional red-sauce pies for me. I consider myself somewhat of a purist when it comes to pizza, but I make a pie using a pre-made base (can't think of the brand name...plastic wrapped...two to a package). lightly oil and crisp in the oven. Meanwhile, saute scallions in butter, when soft add cleaned/tail-less shrimp, add a bit of white wine and seasoning to taste. When shrimp are done, pour shrimp and scallions onto base evenly, shred mozzorella on top, then into the oven to melt cheese.

Fusilli you crazy bastard

As the pasta that's talking is of the straight variety, his friend, Fusilli, is a "cork-screw" shape...hence the reference to being a "crazy bastard."

Olive and Cream Cheese Sandwiches a Baltimore Only Treat?

Amen to all of them! Especially GOOD head cheese, with mustard and coarse ground pepper on rye. People at my lunch table would turn green at the thought, but I loved them all. I wouldn't trade any of them for anything.

Grubhub.com in Hartford CT

I just started a new job in downtown Hartford and was wondering if any local CHers have had any experience with Grubhub delivery in town? Good? Bad? Indifferent?

How do YOU make a meatloaf sandwich?

JOOC...with all that on top, can you even taste the meat? Maybe with an extra thick slice, but I would think the actual meat taste would get lost in all that.
