Foie Gras in Old Bridge!?! New "JUST Restaurant" opens on Route 9

This restaurant located right at the Imporium gas station across the street from the Shop Rite on Rt 9 South at Old Bridge,. This is not an Asian Market next to it but rather a Russian Food store.

Russian / Uzbek Shirin Cafe Manalapan NJ

We just had a family dinner here. Food is unbelievable! Probably the best lamb kebab I ever had. My wife had lamb chops – Chalahach – just amazing! It instantly became our favorite restaurant in NJ!

Scarborough Fair at Sea Girt NJ - very disappointing!

We heard about this place from few people as being very nice, romantic, upscale establishment and decided to try it for our 10 years anniversary. There are not that many reviews about this place, but those that we found – were very positive. So here is our short review:
Food was very disappointing. It wasn’t cooked well and tasted very bland. Lobster soup did not taste as it was made from lobster. Duck was dried and hard to chew. Flounder with white rice wasn’t anything special. Food presentation could be better. It seems like they serve soup and tea in the same cup. BTW when we asked for the tea we were given a plane generic Lipton. Usually if a restaurant wants to be considered an upscale establishment, it provides you with a chose of tea (at least 6 varieties) in the wooden box.

The décor and the place itself is very nice, very romantic (place looks like a tree house and tables are located on different levels) - it has a lot of potentials but they should really work on what they serve, how it is served and how it is prepared.

We will not be back there at least we hear more positive comments on their food quality.

Valentines day dinner in Monmouth county..

I live in Marlboro NJ and would like to take out my wife for a dinner on Valentines day. The place should be upscale with romantic atmosphere, and with excelent food and service.
I was looking into Nicholas in the Red Bank. Any other suggestions? Cousine type is not realy a preference. (but for some reason I think a French cousine sounds the most appropriate)

Last year we went to ChezCatherine in Westfield and we loved it.
