Park & Orchard, East Rutherford

I have gone for lunch and ordered the rice and veggie dish with the indian sauce (you choose the sauce). It does not taste like indian food per se, but it is tasty and the rice is very good.

Mason's Cellar, new wine and liquor store in Rutherford

I do wish them well..very nice store. From what I observed they have kids working the store without any knowledge of wine. Selection of inexpensive wines for the most part. Not for serious wine aficionados.

French-Lebanese in Montclair - Wonderful

We went when they first opened which I know is not always fair...thought the food was okay but far from amazing..not even close to amazing. Have not returned based on the first impression.

Blast From The Past Opened In Saddle Brook.....

Uncle Moustache in Montclair?

Yes, when it first opened. I would not recommend it but it had just opened. The food was okay but nothing special at all. The atmosphere was bland and our meal left us wanting. I remember having chicken kebobs that came with a eggplant puree of sorts..it was just okay.

Best diners in NJ

The Candlewick Diner in East Rutherford had a facelift and is actually quite nice. They also got a real chef, Barry Bonser, the former executive chef of The Pasta Factory in Teaneck and Church Street in Montclair and a veteran of city kitchens such as the 21 Club and Osteria del Circo (from a review). The menu is more upscale than the average diner, but the few things we have tried have been really good. I had a roasted veggie/goat cheese sandwich, whole grain pancakes, and a chicken sandwich.

Ah' Pizz -- Authentic Neopolitan pizza in Montclair

We recently went and had the Margherita pizza and a beet/goat cheese salad. Really enjoyed both and the service was very good on a Friday night.

restaurant in New Jersey very close to Wallington or Wood-Ridge? (or nearby )

Depends on how fine...believe it or not, the Candlewick diner is more restaurant than diner and has some good choices (new chef who is doing a good job). Paisano's in Rutherford as well as Cafe Matisse (not sure if they have lunch). No good chinese that I know of....Tina Louise is Chinese I guess, and lot's of people like them. Park and Orchard is well liked to.

Weehawken or thereabouts

Beyti Kabob is technically in Union City but across the street from Weehawken on Park ave. Turkish Kabab house. Used to go all the time. There is Ruth Chris steakhouse by the waterfront. Chart house too with a great view...so so food. There are Cuban/Hispanic restaurants around too, but I don't know particular names. Hoboken is close by with more choices.

Promising start to a new restaurant at the back of beyond

but includes seafood that is locally harvested....

Hence the 'but'. Goat cheese is vegetarian, it is not vegan.
