Mother's Day Brunch in Central Jersey?

Old Man Rafferty's in New Brunswick. They will take reservations. I don't know about their Hillsborough or Asbury Park locations.

Can call Molly Pitcher in Red Bank and get on their cancellation list.

How many pizzerias in your town? Do we need that many in NJ?

It's a free country. They wouldn't be there if they weren't making a living. All of that real estate would be empty without them. One hand washes the other. They are good members of the "Money Chain".

Pop's Garage and Dauphine Grille Asbury Park

Tim McLoones Supper Club upstairs has great musical groups like the Shirleys, etc with great atmosphere with dancing and good food. To say avoid it you're missing out on a great time. Go there dance the night away, have fun and be young again.

Difficult group of ten looking for fabulous BYO between exits 116 and 138 on GS Parkway

Belford Bistro in Belford and Nemo in Keyport both exit 117 are excellent IMHO

Doris and Ed's Reborn?

As I said above, they must have moved the building much closer to the bay since I was there last for "the view"

Doris and Ed's Reborn?

What a puff piece. The article says they have an "outrageous view of Sandy Hook Bay and the New York skyline." Unless they moved the building since I was there last the view is far away from the water. This makes me wonder about anything in the article. I stopped going to D&E's when IMHO it went downhill after Mary left.

Best Fries

For my money the best fries are at the Keyport Fishery (take out). Anyone else think so?

Ye Cottage Inn, Keyport

I would stick to Drew's (BYOB) or Trinity. For lunch on a nice day get a take-out sandwich at the Keyport Fishery, walk across the street and sit overlooking the bay.

Best seafood at the Jersey Shore (Central)

Although it's been said many times, many ways Shipwreck Grill Brielle is tops.

Trinity Restaurant - Keyport

I guess I'm a little prejudiced. I grew up in Keyport many years ago. It's great to see two Keyport High graduates have made Keyport the place to go for great food. Hopefully Drew's and Trinity will lead the way for other great places. I haven't tried the Irish pub. Any thoughts?

Keyport Fishery Reopens

Remember, take out only. In nice weather bring a folding chair and sit across the street overlooking the Raritan Bay. Also fried only (or was before the fire).
