Any good Spanish restaurants(not Mexican, Cuban, Portuguese, etc, but traditional old school Spanish) in the Montclair area? Or somewhere else roughly halfway between Livingston and Ridgewood? Thanks for any suggestions.

My husband is taking an exam at the Best Western on Park Place in Newark. Any suggestions for a quick but decent lunch? Nothing fancy, a coffee shop or similar is fine. Bonus points for vegetarian options. Thanks!

Family-friendly eats on route from NJ to VT?

I am driving up to Okemo with my family next week, looking for something family (and budget-) friendly on the drive up from NJ. Any ideas welcome. My kids love Cracker Barrel so even something along those lines (or a decent diner) is fine. Thanks!

Need a recommendation off Route 4, near NYC

Cold Spring, NY - where to eat, what to do?

I will be in Cold Spring, NY for a much-needed weekend away with my husband next month. Would love some lunch and dinner recommendations in that area - nothing too, too pricey, but one nicer dinner would be great (we are staying at a b&b so breakfast is covered). We will be driving from NJ on Friday afternoon, so that night can be casual; Saturday is our anniversary, so that would be the nicer dinner. Any help much appreciated. We prefer continental/American cuisine but anything great is fine. We love hole-in-the-wall type places, too (my husband calls them "joints") - as long as the food is great, it doesn't have to be fancy.

Also, can anyone recommend things to do in the area, including a public golf course where we can play a round on Saturday? We are also planning on going to Dia:Beacon...any other places to see in the vicinity? Thanks for any ideas!

family-friendly sunday dinner in montclair?

4 adults, 3 small kids, sunday (tom'w) dinner in montclair. any recommendations for someplace not too expensive that doesn't mind the chaos of small children? i've been to raymond's for brunch and liked it, but never dinner - good choice? is it super-crowded for dinner like it is brunch-time? any other places to recommend along those lines? thanks!!

Meal delivery in Chappaqua area?

On a budget in Bergen - help!

What are your favorite inexpensive (entrees under $20) restaurants in Bergen County? We are on a budget - we have young kids and need to hire a sitter for "date night," so my husband and I are looking for some new ideas that don't cost a ton.

What's your favorite "joint" to eat at? Favorite hole-in-the-wall? Would prefer places with some vegetarian options (husband eats no beef or poultry, will eat fish) and not Asian/Indian - mediterranean is okay. Any tapas places? French bistros that don't cost a fortune? As an example, we love Janice a Bistro in Ho Ho Kus, but it's too $$ for us right now. Pubs are fine, as long as there's more than burgers on the menu. Love BYO places. Thanks!!
