Baku Mediterranean ~ Freehold

I'm with you on this, seal. As I mentioned...$16 for a salad?. Not worth it at all.....

Korean restaurants in Central Jersey?

Can anyone recommend a good Korean place? I don't know of ANY in Monmouth County..I know there is a bunch in Edison..I just want to go to the right one! There use to be one we loved in South Plainfield or Pisataway...it's been so many years I can't even remember!!

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

For the crapiest pizza...De Luca's on 537 in Millstone. Every single time we say to ourselves..let's give it another shot...then we leave super disappointed!!! We even had it 2 weeks ago..pizza has too much oregano, the cheese tastes fake, calamari is over salted, chicken parm tastes like the sauce was made 2 months ago and the chicken was made a week prior

The liver was really good. The Greek salad has bastura (cured meat) on it. That was ok with me, I don't recall it saying that on the menu, but it was good. I don't think it was worth $ 16, though.

The lamb ribs were good, but not a big portion. Whenever we go to that Georgian restaurant (name escapes me right now) on RT 18, we get so much we wind up bringing it home. The dumplings were delish! Service was great..BUT you must tell them NOT to pull the plates so quickly. I understand some people like that, but we HATE that! So you might want to let them know..SLOW it down!

Other than that..I would go back and recommend. They told us they also own the Baku Palace in Brooklyn.

Mediterrean by Top Tomato in Freehold?

Does anyone know if this place opened yet? I saw the sign a few weeks ago, but have not been over there since then. It is replacing the short lived Angelina's restaurant.

The Shadowbrook is such a lovely property, but I agree about that menu...ughhh...I would cringe when we would be invited to anything there. If it wasn't for the grounds, there was NOTHING else to be happy about there. The Venetian has was the BEST wedding of our friends we went to. The food was fabulous!! Not too often you hear a banquet hall doing that. Good news! Thanks for sharing!

Has anyone been to Marina Pirata? I was just told to reserve a table here for dinner?

Restaurants in Ironbound

Go to Elizabeth instead. Newark is full of mediocre restaurants at best. Portugal Express is the BEST! Love it!!

Nunzios Kitchen ~ Sayreville

Has anyone been here? I went last week and was very pleased with the pizza! he place on the inside looks like it should be in the village. Very trendy, fun d├ęcor! We only had the pizza because it was late and my daughter wanted just pizza and to go home. Their menu looks interesting. The place was packed on a Thursday night with take out and all the tables were taken in the dinning room. People were raving about the food.

Will definitely go back!

I went here for the first time (actually went twice it was so good) last week. It's tucked away on a side street, and I must say...I knew it was here, just never ventured to it.

I have to say it is the BEST falafel I have ever had!! Everything is super fresh and all homemade. I was greeted right away by the two lovely older women who run the place. It is really small and quaint. Everything was like eating at your grandmother's house!

The fattoush salad was great, the babaganosh, hummus, you name it. I even bought some tahini sauce and fava beans from the little section they sell.

If you have not been, go!! One word that keeps pooping in my head about this place is "FRESH". It was so good, I brought my friend there the very next day!! Even she went crazy for the place and returned back with her husband the next day. My 4 year old asked me yesterday to go back. Fabulous!

I will post some pics from my iphone, although my pics do the place no justice.

BYOB, definitely try it. They are closed on Sunday and close at 8 on Fri and Sat.

Need lunch and dinner recs in Aruba

hi! We have not been to Aruba for almost 10 years, and I need some recs for lunch and dinner. There are 3 of us...we have a toddler.

Was thinking for dinner:

Flying Fish Bone
Screaming Eagle
Gianni's
Ana Maria's
El Gaucho

Any thoughts on those? Yes or No??

We have a car as well so we can drive anywhere.

Lunch all I can come up with is Salt and Pepper?

We live in NJ... 40 miles outside of Manhattan, so we do like good food!

Thanks!! We are going end of November!

Bistro Rylo ~ Ocean

It looked really good. Oh well....thanks for everyone's input!

Western Monmouth Lunch Party Location

What about Brioso in Marlboro? I swore this place off for a long time, but recently went back over the summer for dinner with friends....I must say we were very pleased. I have now gone back a few times and have always enjoyed my meals. I went to a Saturday bridal shower in a separate room, and everyone was raving about food.

Good luck!

Does anyone know what happened to this place? I wanted to go here tonight, but when I called the machine said they are temporarily closed? NOT a good sign...

Wine bar or French brasserie-near Grand Central?

I know my options are slim with this one, but I am meeting a friend tomorrow night for cocktails and she is staying at the Hyatt Grand Central. Anything worth while..even if I have to venture out of midtown? Thanks in advance!!
