Butcher in Central NJ??

Barth's Market in New Providence. About 20 minutes from North Edison and 15 minutes from Westfield via Terril Rd and Diamond Hill Rd.

Steak Frites -- DC

Mon Ami Gabi - it's a chain but it's good. It's also on the casual side.

Lunch/Mid-afternoon meal in Linden, NJ on Saturday

Unfortunately, there's nothing at all in Linden. There's a lot of fast food places in strip malls. The good news is that the high school is about ten minutes from downtown Cranford and 15 minutes from Westfield. You will get an excellent choice of restaurants between those two. Please do a search on those two on this board. You will most likely get tons of hits.

Dabbawalla in Summit, NJ

We went there last Saturday and while the food was good, there was nothing special. Just standard Indian Americanized restaurant cuisine. And a little overpriced - which is probably why it was not too crowded on a Saturday in downtown Summit.

Recs Near Short Hills NJ/JFK Blvd?

My casual favorites are Huntley Taverne in Summit and Martini's in downtown Millburn.

Westfield area Chinese

As opposed to the standard Chinese-American menu. Among the area Chinese, this place is a favorite and is known for authentic Chinese dishes. Chinese from as far as Flemington go there to celebrate Chinese New Year. I agree though that the interior (and the exterior) could use a lot of upgrading.

Westfield area Chinese

Try Jade Isle on Terrell Road in Scotch Plains. Excellent dimsum on weekends. For dinner and lunch, ask for the Chinese menu. Only drawback is that decor is hideous.

Where to Buy fresh Tuna in NJ

TJ tuna is usually nasty with lots of sinews. If you're in Westfield, try Captain Fresh seafood market on Route 22 - it's near BJ's.

Italian Food Stores - NJ

Have you tried Antonio's Mozzarella Factory in nearby Springfield? Might be worth checking out.

Italian Food Stores - NJ

Barth's Meat Market 3 minutes from you in New Providence was known for the longest time as Barth's Pork Store until it's recent rebranding. They still carry the same Italian food items.
