If you're a pizza person, you should definitely go to Liberty Hall Pizza on North Union Street.

Charming luncheon place somewhere between Philly & Princeton

Here is a very recent review of the Washington Crossing Inn. Unfortunately it does not include comments about the lunch selections.

Diseased Urine Ad Photo

FYI, Ad Blocker and Ad Blocker Plus are two entirely different programs. Some think that Plus is an updated or improved version of Ad Blocker. It isn't.

Plus is the way to go.

Apella in Eatontown - - OPA!

Wonderful review. Good to see you back on what now passes for Chowhound.

Matt Ridgway is closing The Pass in Rosemont! (horrors!)

Any news on where Matt is going?

For those fans of Brian's in Lambertville and those wondering

Looking forward to going to NoLa. I always thought the space was rather awkward so it will be interesting to see what they have done with it.

I walked by Brian's on Sunday and NoLa's menu was posted in the window. No prices but it looked very enticing. Doesn't seem that they will be doing lunches, which is disappointing. Guess I'll have to make do with the Stockton Inn.

25 Burgers Now Open Bound Brook NJ

Wow,devastating news for all concerned. The Bound Brook location was the only one I really liked. The one in Branchburg isn't bad but the one in Flemington has been a huge disappointment.

Hope they rebuild in BB.

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. :))

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.
