Middlesex county/northern shore area

Need a good place for dinner tomorrow night-definitely BYO, to meet friends coming from Princeton and Red Bank-I'm coming from Plainfield. Great food-any type-but preferably not Asian this time-up to $50 a person. Been to Luccas. We spend a significant portion of the dinner tasting wine!
Thank you for any help.

Chengdu in Green Brook?

We couldn't wait and had dinner there on Saturday night. The service was only a bit of a problem-quite a few waitresses who had little or no English, but the manager and another woman took care of any problems quickly-only issue is that we never did get our pea shoots.
The spicy wontons and lamb dumplings were wonderful as was the spicy large shrimp-really fresh and crunchy. We ordered a duck dish in special spicy sauce-it was like a slivered spicy Peking duck with pancakes that were almost see through-it was a great choice! We didn't see any amuse bouche-but I'm guessing it was just a 2nd night issue. Thank you for all the suggestions-what a great restaurant to have so close to home! We'll next work on some of the other suggestions. We will be sorry to see the liquor license come thru-much prefer bringing our own beverages.

Easy make ahead chicken dish

For our Passover dinner there are 3 courses before we ever get to the entree--and lots of pots, baking dishes etc. I'm looking for an easy, make ahead chicken dish that will just have to be heated up. Would love to use boneless thighs and breasts. But I don't want to lose great taste. All suggestions welcome!!

Cauliflower Is it bad?

Have a cauliflower which has started to get brown/black spots on the outside. What is this? What causes this? And most important--can it still be eaten?

Lost my favorite brisket recipe

We love a recipe where a ton of onions are sautéed and the brisket sits on them while they cook. I believe there are chipotles and beer as well. It is a bit spicy and tastes a little like barbecue. My brain cells are frozen and I just can't remember. Can you help??
