Difficult site to use

Although the following is written by the guy who developed Adblock Plus, I think you'll find it interesting.

I use Adblock Plus with Chrome and have had zero problems.

And make sure you get Adblock Plus, NOT Adblock. The two are not related.

Gordon Ramsay in Whitehouse Station

Legs, the building is indeed still there but the sign reads, "The Rail". It's been The Rail for several years now but the place is on a par with The Junction, i.e. mediocre (and I don't mean average). I've been there twice, once by choice and once because I couldn't get out of the invitation. :))

I've never been there for lunch but you might consider Vidalia's.

Chive and Thyme in Flemington

Chive and Thyme Café in Flemington has become our go to place for an excellent lunch at a very reasonable price. It's in the building where the Blue Fish Grill used to be and has limited hours (10-4 as I recall) because it's primarily a catering operation.

It's run by two women who used to work at the original Baker's Treat. One was the executive chef and she has a knack for serving up delicious food very quickly. The only dish that disappointed was macaroni and cheese that had clearly been reheated (too much) in a microwave. Everything else has been freshly made and the sides, which are included with most dishes, are excellent. I nearly always choose the sweet potato fries.

This place is very casual. You order and pay as soon as you go in and the food is brought to your table. If that's not to your liking, don't go, but you'll miss out on some really good lunches!

New Jersey's Best Bars

Supreme Court Justice Potter once said that he wasn't sure he could define pornography but "I know it when I see it". When you find your best bar, you'll know it. Mine, unfortunately, is not in this country. :(

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.

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.

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.

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.
