New Pizza Place in Fair Lawn, NJ

I found it was very oily rather than cheesy. The pizza also had a kind of heavy aftertaste, this could be typical as I don't eat pizza all that much. I will go there again to recheck.

Amsterdam has the best felafel available, if you are a bit flexible and will eat in a strictly vegetarian places owned by Maoz family. In Jerusalem they own the landmark Maoz Felefal opposite the Hamashbir on King george. You can also buy fresh Dutch herring at the Albert Cyup market, the best herring in the world.
A nice meat restauant is HaCArmel, very roomy and not too expensive.

Fairway opening this Wednesday in Paramus!

Does anyone feel this is a mark of shame that instead to support Frum families who own a few grocery stores in the Teaneck area now we spend money on gas to supposedly save a few coins.

Main Event or Prestige

I would be very hesitant to use Main Event. Now bear in mind, that I work in the restaurant business.
Pluses for M/E are the presentation both food and the waiters are dressed well and act very professionally. Don't have to worry there.
My main problem is that the dishes are a little boring but more importantly, the food is undercooked. Maybe it was a one off. But the wedding I attended at the Sheraton Newark, the chicken was undercooked at the Shmorg, the Salmon was not good. Rest of dishes were better.

The main problem in the dinner was the beef. It was too tough to cut or eat. Uneatable.

The chicken was better in the dinner. The potatoes mashed were ok but would have liked to have seen a little flair there. Basically plain mashed. Grilled Vegetables were better, done correctly. Soup on the appetizer was boring, a plain puree. The salad app was better but lose the canned corn there.

I would if it were me and G-d willing in a couple of years I will make a wedding, I will shop around heavily before I would use Main Event. I don't need to worry about things like this at a wedding I am making.
