1) the owner, cecil, remembers my name as well as mrs. tommy's name, who wasn't even there (i've only eaten here 4 times)
2) we started with duch tongue. the interesting thing about duck tongue is:
a) it's a tongue
b) it has a bone running down the middle
c) it doesn't taste like chicken
as usual, cecil brought out a complimentary extra dish. the last time is was fish maw, this time it was that rice "pasta" that a few of us egulleteers had when we met there if i recall.
the place rules. but don't tell anyone. our little secret.

just to set the record straight ms. perlow, i've been eating thai and indian since your were in diapers. duck tongue, however, is relatively new for me.
Boy tommy, you are getting so adventurous! Just a few months ago you didn't even want to go into a Chinese or Thai restaurant. Now you're a regular and eating duck tongue! The last time Kinara was mentioned you didn't sound ready for Indian, now you definitely do!

As for his reaction to Indian food, I saw it during the NY eGullet Bar Crawl. It wasn't pretty. Kinara is fairly different for Indian, but still...

So, no one's up for BBQ tonight?

I have to work in Red Bank on occasion, and since it is a long drive, we usually make dinner first. Unfortunately, since I DO have to work in the evening, we can't lounge over dinner. So far, we have tried Basil T's, Carlos O Connor's, and the Dublin House in addition to Topps for Red Bank dinners. If anyone has other suggestions for Red Bank dining, they would be welcome.
Anyway, Topps Restaurant, a small BYO, specializes in German style, with some seafood as well. I had the pork loin stuffed with apple sausage while my wife had the venison (which, by the way, we just finished the leftovers an hour ago!). We started with the potato pancake platter, and they include house salad - family style, and with your entree you get a family style plate of sides that includes German potato salad, red cabbage, and spaetzle. We ended with a lingonberry crepe for dessert. I suppose our overall feeling is that the food is good, but not worth a special and long trip. Also, we made a rez for 5pm, and my wife overheard the wait staff saying they could probably get us out and turn the table. Of course, she notices everything while I am blissfully ignorant! I'd be interested in anyone else's comments on Topps.
