Redemption - Asbury Park

We went last week as well, the chorizo stuffed dates were good as well as the French fries.

Prohibition in Asbury?

Yes you are correct.
Redemption, where ChefMD is now is where the Bank on Mattison was. We went two nights ago to Redemption. They have only been open for a week and don't have the full menu rolled out yet, but it looks like it will be good.
We had the chorizo stuffed dates which were good.

Asbury Beer Garden (Biergarten)

It was packed in the dead of winter so I will stay away until the fall and then only early week. I have an in to get in when there is a line but I won't use that as I wouldn't enjoy it if the place is that packed.
If it's a nice day I would imagine that the roof is packed but maybe the inside is more manageable, but I could be wrong.

Asbury Park-2 nights around Labor Day

I agree with the rec of Talulas, we go there often. Most every place is casual in the summer even Pascal and Sabine although I wouldn't wear shorts there.
I would look into making reservations as if every other weekend is an indication., places will be packed.
Porta's wait time last week he was over an hour at peak dinner time.
Agree with staying away from the boardwalk to eat.
Breakfast at Franks, visit the food truck court on the north end.
Talulas has a great brunch and Lola's European cafe has a build your own Bloody Mary bar on weekends

Birthday dinner with "wow factor" within 30 minutes of Long Branch?

We had a party at Mr C's a few weeks ago and other than the view everything was quite forgettable

Does anyone know what kind of food/menu is being served at Argo in Ocean (old Mike & Nellie's)?

If no one here can answer your question to your satisfaction, why don't you call them?

Jersey Sloppy Joe gets its due at Serious Eats

I've only been in NJ about 9 years. Imagine the look on my face when I ordered a sloppy joe and got that.

Crawfish Boil, Oysters, Po' Boys -- LA

My father went to Hawks 5 times this year. On his last trip he also had some boiled shrimp and absolutely loved them

Asbury Park Restaurant Tour

I enjoy Talulas but don't feel the need to hype it since it will be crowded enough come summer.
Maybe Dino's is getting their act together, I only went once after they opened and wasn't impressed.

10 of the Shore's top spots for pork roll

You can slice it as thick or thin as you want, I prefer thin. And definitely cook it in a pan.
I too am a southerner by now live in NJ and love Taylor Ham/pork roll.

I also love the pork roll fries at Bond Street in Asbury Park

Seafood City

I am not over 50 but fast approaching and remember them very well. Once woke up outside of seafood pretty in a car after a long night of drinking

Popeyes Love

Exactly, the skin was not crispy at all. I bought it strictly to make gumbo as a fried turkey makes incredible stock for the gumbo and it was lacking

Popeyes Love

The fried turkey isn't that great, and I love Popeyes.

Asbury Beer Garden (Biergarten)

They have the same seating at their place in Hoboken, it was never an issue there. Usually if I go I'm with enough people that we take up most of the table or I just sit at the bar.

The place had lines down the block when it was 20 degrees outside. They have done a great job on social media before the place opened. Summer will be terrible around there as the roof deck can hold another 700 people I think. If parking is bad now, just wait till summer.

I'm looking outward to the new place of theirs on Cookman, it can't open soon enough.

Top 20 Burgers at the Shore

I've tried other locations of smash burger, they are good.

Pascale and Sabine should be on the list

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

I went to Clancy's Tavern in Neptune a few times after bad experiences but after our last visit I haven't stepped foot back in there.
I can only take so much for convenience

Food Trucks Coming To Asbury...

The crappy restaurants on the boardwalk should be concerned.
But as these can't sell booze, people will still go to the brick and mortar places to drink and eat
