Lighthouse resturant in weehawken Veal

Yes, that is the restaurant, but, the thing I remember the most is the Coupe Marron. It was chocolate cake rolled around vanilla ice cream and topped with candied chestnuts. To die for!!!

Pagoda Tea House Lakewood NJ Rt 70 CLOSED

I know you could just drive right pass the place, but, for years the food was very good. Just the past couple I didn't think it was still very good, but, just ok.

We did really enjoy the food we had at Lo's and will try out the other recommendations.

That's interesting - we'll have to see if they reopen there or if there will be a new restaurant in it's place.

We tried Lo's Garden and it was very good. Everyone enjoyed it and looking forward to going back. We still have to try Sentosa and looking forward to going there too.

Toms River area - chopped chicken livers?

Just a thought, but, what about Irv & Karen Hot Pastrami in Brick? I haven't been, but, I would imagine that they would have a decent chopped liver. My friends have been and they said their corned beef and pastrami was just ok.

Braciole

I would definitely recommend the braciole at Il Giardinello, 1232 New Jersey 166, Toms River http://www.ilgiardinello.com/

We were just there on Sunday and I had the braciole (that was the third time I had it in the last year LOL) It was absolutely delicious! It is served on a large bed of penne that had a fabulous pizzaiola type sauce that has mushrooms and red peppers.

On Sunday there were 9 of us and everyone had something diffferent and they all loved their appetizers and dinners. 7 had never been there before as it was our recommendation and we had to drive over an hour to get there.

River House Brielle ... Wedding reception plans

Barbarella, you know I said we just went, but, time does fly as the wedding we attended was last summer. Maybe things changed. I don't remember the parking lot at all and there was no sort of moldy smells. or dirty carpeting I would have been upset over that and would have remembered. Sorry to hear that they have gone down hill.

River House Brielle ... Wedding reception plans

I don't know anything about the River House, but, if you are looking for a wedding venue we just went to one at the Crystal Point in Point Pleasant and it was fabulous. The food was fantastic, the room was very pretty and the view was great. Everyone that I know that went to this wedding said the same thing - there was not one thing to complain about. I would highly recommend it. Good Luck to you on your wedding.

If you have been to Lo's by any chance have you been to that place a couple of blocks away called Sentosa? That was also highly rated and we thought we would give Sentosa a try next time to see how it was.

Pagoda Tea House Lakewood NJ Rt 70 CLOSED

You found that, too. We tried going there last week and found it all dark, no lights and we have been eating there for at least 15 years. So, we found a great place (thanks to Yelp) called Lo's Garden, 2132 New Jersey 88, Brick. http://losgarden.com/ The food was very good. So, at least we will have another place to go to now that Pagoda is gone.

chinese new year restaurants nj

I agree with Curlz as they are our go to places, too. I've been going to Chengdu 1 for over 10 years and only found Chengdu 23 about 5-6 years ago and definitely prefer Chengdu 23. We have taken so many people there and everyone loves it and wants to go back there to eat.

BYO with Party Room - no more than 15 minutes from Meadowlands

In December we had a party at Gelone 650 Ridge Rd, Lyndhurst. They have a very nice party room which is private and the food is very good. It always has been and it continues to be which is just great. Their website seems to be down, but, I found a pic of the party room. It's the second picture. We had around 33 people and had it set up at one long table.

Also, in Lyndhurst there is Il Cafone at 7 Ridge Rd, Lyndhurst. We had a party there 3 years ago and will be having another one this year. They have good food and a private party room. They have parking in the back and there is a staircase up into the restaurant. http://www.trattoriailcafone.com/gall... If you look at their photo gallery the party room is shown in the last two interior pictures.

Bridal shower - 30 people - recommendations in Monmouth, Union counties.

I would recommend The Mill in Spring Lake as they have a great brunch. The last 3 years we have been going with friends and each time was really good. Great location, very nice place and you could ask them to give you the room off the brunch set up. It would be totally private and you would have a beautiful view of the "lake".

Jersey barbecue freaks prepare yourselves - Mighty Quinn's to open in Clifton

Well, I guess we agree to disagree. I've had BBQ in Texas and the Carolina's and in IMO I think that Local Smoke is excellent!

I am really looking forward to trying their BBQ.

A few weeks ago we were in the Neptune area and stopped in at Local Smoke http://www.localsmokebbq.com/ and it was the real deal. They definitely know what they are doing as their Q was delicious along with the pulled chicken and loved the hush puppies! I would highly recommend you try it if you are down in that area.

Yes, Kosher Nosh is definitely better and I really love their brisket and Israeli pot roast.

Do you know of any other good kosher deli, and by good mean better than Kosher Nosh, in New Jersey?

Pine Nuts (Pignoli) in Bergen County?

A couple of months ago I picked up a bag from Costco. I always look to see where items come from and I didn't. The next day I was going to make pignoli cookies. I then happened to look at where they came from - China. No thank you, back they went as I don't trust any food items from China.

jmoryl - was/is there a problem with the ones from China?

Indian Aroma in Rockaway NJ - Great lunch buffet

We are big fans of Chand Palace especially the Tuesday night buffet that features meat.

This sounds like another great place. Definitely going to check it out. TFS

Point Pleasant Sunday Early Dinner

I was thinking if you are going to Mass and want to eat early in the day what about a brunch? I would suggest going to The Mill in Spring Lake. It's only about 5 or 6 miles away it's a lovely place with good food and they could easily accommodate your group of relatives.

Wegman to open in Bergen county

Ebchower - no, I didn't get confused though you are right that the names could be confusing to some.

I don't live in the area, but, friends do and I remember a while ago they mentioned Wegman's might be coming in. I would think that The Record would have it right and I agree that that area would not be interest to them.
