Juxtaposition and Gabrielle Collection?

Yes, she's around, been around. She makes excellent wines with her husband, and my family had the privilege of meeting her in Saratoga at the food and wine festival a couple of years ago. Wonderful, humble, kind woman - she should brag about her wine though... Her cabernets, Equilateral and Juxtaposition, are of the high quality I expect, even though she's a small producer, from Robert Craig, Lokoya and Foley. All my friends who love these wines I mentioned have tried her wines and been amazed. We buy cases regularly from the winery directly - she only sells to club members.

Thai food in Central Jersey

I went to Chao Phaya in Somerville, and was very disappointed. Their satay tasted sour, and the sauce was gritty. The pad thai was a disappointment as was the cashew chicken dish (don't recall Thai name). It came so highly recommended, I was bummed. The veggie fried thai rice was ok but too many large, bizarre veggies and too many tomatoes. I absolutely LOVE Pru Thai in Clinton - worth the drive for us - their tea is out of this world! Much spicier and more flavorful than Chao Phaya...

House of Wong, Somerville NJ

When will House of Wong be open again? They closed last April to reopen in a new location in Bridgewater.... not open yet - the construction looks delayed. I MISS it so much - we used to go there almost every Friday night. I am not a Chinese food expert - I can't even tell you the specific cuisine there. All I know is that their egg rolls, Chicken and Broccoli and pan fried vegetable dumplings were to die for! Any place with similar food anyone knows of? To keep us sane until the reopening? All the other Chinese we've tried in its place has stunk... :( HELP!

Looking for Greek Food and Falafels in Central/North NJ?

Does anyone know if this place talked about last summer - Greek in Highland Park - is open yet? If so what is it called? We were sorely missing great Med food after having an amazing meal last April in DC called Zatinaya - we were so relieved to find 7 Hills of Istanbul last weekend - AMAZING!
