Best Italian Food in Monmouth County

Thanks, RGR! I've been to the family-style restaurants (and hated them!), as well as Ponte Vecchio, Christie's, Buone Sera, Jimmy's, etc. I just haven't found one that is good-old, homemade, casual Italian. I'd appreciate any suggestions...

Good Local Chinese or PF Changs?

My husband and I tried King's once and won't go back. Peking Pavillion is very popular, but we like Sunny Palace the best for dinning-in experience (try the honey chicken!). If you're looking for a whole in the wall take out, we like Island Taste at the intersections of rt 79 and 520 in Marlboro.

Park Avenue Seafood Bistro

I was just at a communion party there- the food was very good (I had an excellent salmon wellington and my husband enjoyed the filet of beef) and we both loved the bananas foster/raspberry flambe station for dessert. I'm going back this week to try the lunch menu and raw bar.

Best Italian Food in Monmouth County

Can anyone suggest a good Italian restaurant in Monmouth County that is not too pretentious or expensive? I haven't yet found one I like.

Central NJ-60th Birthday Rest. Suggestions, 30 people

I was just at a communion party at a new restaurant in Freehold- Park Avenue Seafood Bistro. They put together a nice affair- the room was private from the restaurant and looked very pretty. The food was very good (I had an excellent salmon wellington and my husband enjoyed the filet of beef) and we both loved the bananas foster/raspberry flambe station for dessert. I'm going back this week to try the lunch menu and raw bar.

best bakery for a wedding cake

I really like Francesca's Cakery- her cakes are beautiful. Her website is www.cakeNJ.com. I just sampled some of her cupcakes at a food tasting- I tried the red velvet, key-lime coconut, and apple- they were all delicious.

Best Sunday Brunch in AC

I too have enjoyed the Borgata buffet. The waffles are excellent.
