Hopewell Valley Restaurant Week

The Hopewell Valley restaurant week starts tomorrow (Sunday). Some great restaurants are participating - Blue Bottle, Brothers Moon, SweetGrass, Nomad Pizza, etc. - along with a number I'm not familiar with.

Oyster deals in CNJ

Three of the places mentioned in the link claim to offer $1 or $1.50 oysters, but only at a specified time. As for the MOH, get on their e-mail list and they'll let you know about specials. For example, this weekend they had Delaware Bays for $1 while supplies lasted.

If you're in a part of central Jersey that is close to Lambertville/New Hope, this will be of interest:

Wolfgang's in Somerville has opened...

Be careful when reading the Yelp reviews. Several by people who have posted only one review.

Esjro, thanks for this. I always forget to look at FB for restaurant information.

Lunch in New Brunswick

I haven't been for years but you might check out Sahara on Easton Avenue.

Korean in Somerville

Driving along Main Street on Saturday, I noticed a big sign saying that a Korean restaurant would be opening "soon" in the space where Smokehouse Barbecue used to be (and before that, Cedars, a Lebanese restaurant).

The new place will be called Seoulville but that's all I could find on-line. Don't know if it will offer Korean BBQ.

Hands Down- Best BYOB in Central Jersey?

Blue Bottle is indeed a wonderful BYO restaurant but it's in Mercer, not Somerset County.

Bernards Inn Winter Menu

My mouth is watering after reading your report. Thank you.

I haven't been to the Inn for years. Really have to make plans!

Great Italian Deli in or around Somerset NJ?

Thank you for posting this. I had never heard of Sapore Ravioli but will definitely check it out the next time I take 287S (or is it 287E?).

Also try Joe's Meat Market on Route 27 in Franklin Park. I have not been but a friend really likes this place.

I second K&S, where I have been.

NYT Article - Luca's, Somerset

I live near Flemington and have been to the Luca's there. It was dreadful. We were the only customers in the restaurant during a two hour period a couple of weeks ago. I'm tempted to go to the Somerset location just to see what it's like!

The Pass (Rosemont, NJ): Prix-fixe price and format change

Interesting.....

The prix-fixe meals are now described as tasting menus. It's not clear what this means. Do you get to choose from the a la carte section or ???.

Also, looking through past menus, it seems they now change every two weeks rather than every week.

Flemington for lunch

I would go to 55 Main and have one of their burgers. You should too!

Btw, 55 Main is apparently doing Sunday brunch now.

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.

Buying a Steak in NJ (butcher shops)

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

I don't know for sure but I believe the relationship was severed.

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.

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

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.

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.
