Using access roads to get into/out of a Turnpike rest area

I used to live right there. I'm not ashamed to say I used that road several times to hit the Roy Rogers that was there.

Drew's Bayshore Bistro, Keyport

Went on a wim Last night. Service was great. The duck and onion MAc and cheese was one of the best dishes I've ever had. The 16 Hour Pork Belly was also out of this world. For an entree I had the hanger steak, at the table we also had the soft shell crab and an order of the scallops. To finish it off we got the chocolate, caramel,and pretzel tart with sea salt. It was a perfect blend of sweet salty with just the right crunch. Everything was amazing. I live 3 minutes from Drews and honestly can kick myself for not going there earlier. I will be returning.

Danny's Steakhouse/Sushi/Wine Bar...Red Bank, on Kitchen Stakeout 4/24/13

I actually went to Danny's about a month ago. It was a bad experience all the way around. My wife and I had a reservation at 7:30. We arrive at 7:20 and the host tell us it will be about a 20 minute wait. No big deal we take our pager and head to the bar. The bar was packed so we squeezed into a corner and waited. at 8:00 I went to the host stand and they apologize and say it will only be several more moments. At 8:20 we decide to just eat at the bar and give the bartender our pager. Now the food itself was good. Nothing spectacular that would justify an hour wait (with reservations) After dinner while trying to get another drink the bartender was more worried about finding her smokes and a lighter then helping us. Then after we paid the Bill Danny came out and apologized to us.( It turns out the hostess wrote down the wrong pager number and they never came to look fir us.) Overall just not a good experience.

The Meat House...Summit

I also went on opening day. Again the staff was very friendly and Knowledgable. Theres not a lot of butchers around anymore so this will be nice to grab a cut of meat on the way home in the summer for some grilling or smoking.

Polish Kielbasi

How about "The Pork Store" in Union on Morris ave. They do all sorts of great meats. Google the place they have a great website that shows only some of the things they carry.

after dinner drinks in the Chatham area?

Huntly Tavern in Summit. It's a bit on the fancy side and Upscale but if it is a special occasion it should be perfect.

Sushi Palace in Middletown

I havent been to the one in Middletown but the owner has 4 Sushi Palaces. They are unique as in they are all you can eat but no buffet. You order everything from a menu and they bring it out family style.

Places like the Round Grill Formerly in New Brunswick ?

Does anyone know of any places that serve the same style as the round grill in New Brunswick before they closed. I think they called it Korean BBQ but I don't know how accurate that description really is.
