Any Balkan restaurants / food stores / cafes in North Jersey?

The Underground Restaurant in Princeton closed a couple of years ago.

New Indian Buffet/Restaurant in Flemington Blue Diamond Buffet?

Have not been but I love Indian food so will definitely try it. Surprised that they are doing a buffet for BOTH lunch and dinner but I understand you can also order a la carte at dinner.

Tough location; hope they make it.

Charlie's Pool Room proprietor Joe Fencz dies of cancer at age 68

I read about this a couple of weeks ago. It would appear that the Pool Room has closed forever.

Wolfgang's Steakhouse....in NJ!

Don't think Jockey Hollow has anything to worry about. Char, on the other hand.....

Wolfang's will now have locations in Manhattan, Beverly Hills, Miami, Waikiki, Tokyo and.............Somerville, NJ!

From NY - visiting Grounds for Sculpture on Sunday

Rat's is not open for dinner on Sundays. It's not clear from your post whether you're coming from NYC or NY state. Tell us the route you'll take to get home and we can make suggestions.

TUTTI FRUTTI ICE CREAM

Yup, still available in many - but not all - Indian grocery stores in NJ. I bought a huge tub of the stuff about six months ago.

Jersey barbecue freaks prepare yourselves - Mighty Quinn's to open in Clifton

Jockey Hollow Bar and Kitchen

Rhubarbd, thank you for providing the above link. After reading it, and several other on-line articles about Mr. Cannon, I am beginning to understand why he was "elbowed out" (Mr. Cannon's words) of his NYC operations.

You are correct that there are two sides to all stories although if you've ever seen the film, Rashomon, you know that there are often more than two. Perhaps you could offer the other side of Coldbeer's comments above, assuming there is one.

Jockey Hollow Bar and Kitchen

Yes, he said it. He also said he eats 98% of his meals in NYC. Quite a feat for someone who lives in Jersey.

Princeton new restaurant

Friends of mine have been to SweetGrass and "loved it". They did say, however, that it was very noisy. Don't know if they went on a weekday or weekend.

The link between the Stockton Market and MQ's is Hugh Mangum who, I believe, still lives in or near Stockton. He used to be in the Market at what was then called MQ's. He co-founded MQ's in NYC and Clifton.

Good Reuben in Central NJ?

I hope we don't see more of this

Got it immediately, probably because I listen to the news. Didn't even have to go to your link. Dr. Snyderman should be ashamed of herself. The Peasant Grill could lose a lot of business in the short term because of her selfishness.

Princeton new restaurant

The cafe you refer to is Cafe Vienna and it is indeed fairly new. However, it is certainly not a restaurant. I've been there a couple of times for coffee and a pastry, Pastries are very good.

The only place I can think of is elements, which is moving to a new location in town. It won't open until next year.

How does The Bosphorus in Nutley, NJ compare to the Turkish offerings in Paterson/Clifton area

Is this the restaurant that used to be in Bridgewater many years ago?

Sichuan Ace.......Somerset opinons?

Tapas52, thanks for mentioning this place. I had no idea it existed. I used to live in Somerset so will have no trouble finding it.

Any Vegan/Vegetarian Restaurants in Central New Jersey ?

Madgreek mentioned the Lovin' Oven in Frenchtown and I would definitely second this choice. They have a good selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes, and everything I have had there was scrumptious.

ELA, the link you gave doesn't seem to connect. This one should work:

Lunch in Long Branch

Yes, my friend's relatives live in Long Branch but I understand they rarely go out to eat any more. They apparently are pretty flexible but "don't like spicy food". I guess that rules out things like Thai and Indian. Waterfront view would probably be a plus.

Lunch in Long Branch

A friend and I want to meet for lunch in Long Branch (week day). Neither of us knows the town, let alone the restaurants. He apparently wants to meet there because he is staying with elderly relatives.

Suggestions please. He specifically wants to eat in Long Branch as his relatives will most likely join us.

Yes, I know. My post was really meant for you and others. It will be interesting to learn where the OP ends up.

Restaurant Latour just received an "Excellent" from the NY Times. Very few NJ restaurants have ever received this rating.

Ryland Inn

I know this is an old thread but I think it's the most recent concerning The Ryland Inn.

Found the following info on Rosie Saferstein's blog:

"Anthony Bucco, previously from the Ryland Inn, Whitehouse Station has announced that he will be the executive chef of a farm-to-table restaurant by Jonathan Waxman, set to open this winter at the 1 Hotel Central Park, NYC."

I for one will miss Bucco. We enjoyed his cooking several times, first at Stage Left in New Brunswick, then at Uproot in Warren and most recently at The Ryland Inn.

Did not know this - very disappointing news. I still remember the first time I had coffee there. It was Guatemalan and boy, was it good!

Tea room near New Hope/Lambertville

About 20 min away, in Hopewell, NJ, there's a place called 'Paint the Roses'. I've been by it many times but never gone in. I don't know any other tea rooms in the area.

FYI, one of the best tea rooms in New Jersey, Teaberry's, is in Flemington but that may be too far for you to drive.
