Broadway Diner Red Bank Closes

Saw this article on Red Bank Green. I am very saddened by this. I always thought they had excellent pancakes and I thought it was a good value. It also sucks how the employees got no notice. The location is going to be a new Toast.

Oysters in Monmouth/Ocean?

Although in Mercer County Blue Point Grill always has many different oysters. I think you would find it worth the trip.

Good Sushi in Monmouth county? Where do you go?

My wife likes their hot vegetable soup. My four year old loves their shrimp dumplings and their Pork Katsu. Other than that we get the Spicy Seaweed Salad and sushi/Sash.

If memory serves me about your past posts you indicate you are a big guy like me, so If I go to a regular sushi restaurant I probably spend $100 on myself. Here my wife, son and I can get out for $60.0 with Soda.

Good Sushi in Monmouth county? Where do you go?

If you're in Middletown I would also try Sushi Palace for AYCE. The fish is always tasty. My wife used to go to Japan quarterly and is a sushi snob and she finds it to be good. Also have a co-worker who used to work for Panasonic who went to Japan frequently and he just tried it and thinks it is a good spot and a great value.

Fried oysters ? Red Bank area?

I think Mr. Shrimp in Belmar had them the last time I was there.

Blue Water Seafood in Red Bank is closed

Maybe it was the money they had to pay to block off that whole strip of broad street for their valet parking that did them in.

Runa Peruvian Cuisine Red Bank

I was making my weekly run to Bagel Oven and noticed a sign for this restaurant. I did a google search and it looks like it has been in the works since 2012 and hopefully opening soon. It is going to be located where Eurasian Eatery was . I've never had Peruvian food, but it looked delicious on No Reservations. I wonder if they'll have cuy.

Sahara in Mattawan on 34

My family and I get food from the market side periodically and have eaten in the restaurant once. They're gyro meat is delicious. The hummus was very good. The grape leaves were good. I enjoyed their rice which was a pilaf a lot. I can't remember the Egyptian name of what we ordered my son but Armenians call it Lula Kebab and it is basically a tubular piece of spiced chopmeat that is grilled and that was excellent. Almost as good as my wife's. They're tzatziki sauce also is good. That's all we've tried at this point but we really haven't had anything that wasn't enjoyable. The service in the restaurant was slow but friendly the one time we ate there. It's definately the best middle eastern/Greek food we've had down here.

NEW Cluck-UChicken to Open in Toms River NJ

This may be my anal side coming out(thankfully not literally), but I noticed the 50 bucket of wings is 39.99 while their best value tray of 100 is 79.99. 2 buckets of 50 would be 79.98 and a slightly better value.

corned beef in monmouth county nj

I agree Joon that Richards Pastrami is excellent. I guess I should have been clearer that I always prefer Corn Beef. My wife always gets pastrami whenever we go to a Jewish deli and I usually don't think much of it anywhere, but Richards I can eat.

You could try Hoffmans in Little Silver. My personal favorite is their Coffee Oreo.

Long Branch Eats

Best bet for seafood would be to drive home to Blue Point Grille. I live 5 minutes from Long Branch, but to me it's worth the drive when I want fish/oysters. My wife and I I will actually be there Saturday night to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. I would agree with prior recs that in LB Niko's is your best bet. Nav Fishery and Mr. Shrimp are also very good.

Muang Thai Red Bank

I've heard some of the Vegan ducks won't even wear clothes made from animal products. They don't mind paying some extra bills for faux leather etc.

Just moved to Princeton, looking for oysters

+1 for Blue Point Grill. My wife and I went there for our anniversary in May specifically for the oysters and were not disappointed.

Jersey Shore Food Truck Wars

I agree the lines were crazy. Also not being 100% sure you were in the right line was frustrating. The only truck my group even got to was the taco truck. The pork and chicken tacos were good. They had a fried catfish taco that was excellent. Crispy fried catfish with an excellent sauce. The only thing better was the couple of wins I had betting on the ponies!!!

I'm not sure. The only reason I know is the company I work for got our coverage through him the last couple of years.

Looking for a Restaurant in Central and Northern NJ for a Baby Shower...Please help

I had my wife's baby shower at Restaurant Nicholas arguably the finest restaurant in NJ. The daytime private party prices were within your budget in 2010 before my little guy was born. I believe the price per person included wine. I would give them a call.
