Pizza Help

More than the few miles you indicated but may be worth your while to visit the town of Matawan / Aberdeen and visit De Nenino's and/or Ciro Pizza Cafe which are both out of Staten Island and about as good as any NY style pizza you will find in Jersey. http://ciropizzacafes.com/

over 40 restaurant/bar in monmouth county

Second both of these restaurants/bars in the Jersey Shore area of Monmouth County. The Shipwreck is the quintessential hangout for the over 40 singles crowd as well as married couples looking to unwind. The Mill is upscale but very nicely priced during happy hour which by the way runs from 4-7 every day.

Nemo - Keyport Sushi-Pan-Asian Cuisine

HillJ, we feel this is one of the truly great pan asian restaurants in New Jersey and an excellent value as well. A few weeks ago we took another couple for their first visit and they were blown away. They will now be retuning on their own no doubt. Glad that you enjoy it so much and continue to prompt them.

Nemo - Keyport Sushi-Pan-Asian Cuisine

Hi Tom, we love the dumplings either steamed or fried, their tossed green salad with mango dressing, the fire wok, shrimp sambal, wok garlic shrimp, chicken w/ garlic, spicy green pepper w/ beef and also w/ chicken, crispy calamiri to name a few. Actually, we have never had a dish that we did not enjoy over these past couple of years. One of these days we must get around to trying their sushi. :-)

Nemo - Keyport Sushi-Pan-Asian Cuisine

I think we were just finishing our dinner last night and seated next to the back deck when you walked in. Did your your wife wear a nice fur head pice? As always we too enjoyed our dinner and yes the chef's name is Lee and Stephen's service was excellent for us as well. Nice to hear that you all enjoyed your dinner Tom.

Thai food in Central Jersey

Our first visit to Four Seasons was about twenty years ago and we still consider it numero uno when it come to Thai food in New Jersey. A hole in the wall for sure but it can't be beat by any of the myriad of americanized Thai restaurants around these days.

Tandoor E India - Oakhurst, NJ

We still go to Tandoor E India once in awhile and it is still good but we also like Noor Palace in East Brunswich which is a tad better as far as both the food and ambiance. You can't go wrong with either however.

Jerseygirl, have you personally dined at Daniel's Bistro and met Karen?

My vote would be for Daniel Bistro at their new location on Broadway in Point Pleasant Beach which is much larger than their old spot. They can easily handle a party of 12 at this New American Bistro. Fancy with outstanding food and very professional service all overseen by Karen who pays attention to every detail to ensure your satisfaction.

Restaurants/pubs in/near Burlington?

The Pub in Pennsauken is a south Jersey institution. When attending class in Burlington I would go once a week or so in the early 70's and it had already been around for many years. Check out the following web site complete with customer appreciation coupons and you decide...

Where is the best cannoli in Monmouth County?

Just tried Delponte's which was decent and Caputo's which was excellent, nearly as good as my Staten Island favorite. Thanks again all ...

Best Olives?? Central Jersey Area

Second Wegman's which has a huge selection of quality olives as well as a very nice selection of artisan cheeses. For a supermarket they simply can't be beat.

Thanks everyone for some great suggestions! After sampling these places and putting on a few pounds I'm sure to find the best cannoli in Monmouth County. :-)

Where is the best cannoli in Monmouth County?

Need to pick up a dozen next week - any cannoli experts out there? Alfonso's in Staten Island is my yardstick for measuring a good cannoli, but too far to drive just for pastry. Thanks...

New Jersey's best burgers: Where Are They Now?

I think they are mentioned somewhere in this post already, but another vote for Harpoon Willies in Manasquan is in order. It has been our go to place for a burger for the past year. Deliciously grilled at the bar in front of you and served with very decent fries or large onion rings or an excellent slaw which ever you prefer.

It's time to reassess the Red Bank dining scene.

Yes there is a connection with Peking Pavilion in Manalapan, the son I believe.

Asian Food Market coming soon in Marlboro

Visited this new location recently and it was well worth the trip. The selection of frozen dumplings alone had to number a few dozen different varieties. But the real treat was the Florida navel oranges which were as sweet as honey. This new AFM location is huge and even includes a Latin grocery section along with tons of Asian products.

Joe's Crab Shack ~ Eatontown

A quick stop for lunch for a mahi mahi sandwich with a side of fries does not provide enough basis for much of an opinion on Joe's overall but I will say the fish sandwich was delicious.

The waitstaff antics (clapping and dancing to loud music) however must go - IMO.

Ospreycove, sounds like you are not a Joe's Crab Shack fan. BTW you have some interesting posts on the ChowHound Florida board in and around the Tampa bay area. Are you on Yelp by any chance and if so what is your ID?

Anyone ever try the Navesink Fishery?

Sorry Jerseygirl, but going against the grain here as my experience was - over rated and over priced for just an average seafood dining experience. I would compare it to Mr. shrimp in Belmar which I'm not a fan of either...

Now that Pierre Chocolates is long gone does anyone have a favorite place that approaches Pierre's in terms of quality and originality? I'm talking store made here and not the mass producers like Godiva and etcetera. Thanks for your suggestions!

Asian Food Market coming soon in Marlboro

Yes they do have a large banner add under special, looking to hire for the new store in Marlboro. I called and asked when they plan to open and the response was probably the end of December. So all you Asian store food buffs will have to hold your horses for a bit longer ...

Great Hot Dogs at Rutt's Hut? Fuhgedaboudit!

What most people fail to realize is that Rutt's is not about the food not even the ripper. It is however about the dining experience and fond memories from the past when you were a lot younger and a little more acceptive...
