Not sure if you just want expensive or expensive and good, but this list from the recent NJ Monthly might be a helpful start:

Top 25 NJ Restaurants

And, while NJ may not be a huge state, if there's any criteria beyond "NJ", that might be useful to know. I'm sure, for instance, if this person wanted to schlepp to Atlantic City, a pretty penny could be spent at any number of restaurants.

I sent her that article before, but not sure if it is what she was looking for. I am not really sure of specifics, I dont think she is either since her boss is a little out there. He refuses to give any specifics as to cuisine or location, all we know is he just wants in NJ.

I'm assuming that one could also spend a decent amount of money (with wine) at The Manor, Highlawn Pavillion, Rats, or David Drake...but I still don't think we're talking Per Se prices.

Fwiw, there's a difference between wanting the best MEAL vs. the most expensive. Sounds like her boss is a tool who just wants to impress someone with $ signs. Yeesh.

In that case, he could just start with a helicopter ride across the Hudson and have a limo waiting to drive him and his client up to Per Se.
