  1. Yea..It was sad to see the Hudson Street close. I heard there was like a 4 hour wait the last day they were open. I do like Robbinsville DeLorenzo's too...I think only a real critic could tell a difference..I cannot...kind of like a critic differentiating between Luger's and Wolfgang's (can't differentiate that one either). Next time I'm in the area I have to try Papa's. I always liked Papa's too. Jersey has lots of great pie places.. Delorenzo's still remains my fav.. ttyl
  2. IMHO DeLorenzo's has the best pie in NJ.
  3. steakas - I'm not disputing that I'm in the "extreme" minority about Vics. All I'm saying is that the Pizza didn't do anything for me and I couldn't understand what all the fuss was about. As far as your hypothesis that there is a direct correlation between the age of a restaurant and quality; I'm sorry but I can't agree. Please don't take this the wrong way, but I would appreciate your impressions AFTER you have had a chance to dine there. ← You are very right! It's bad to make assumptions about someplace I've never been to. After I try it I'll then express my opinion. Based on what you said, and given the support herein, I'm in no rush to go there.But 60 years? Sixty years is longer than most of us are living. I'm sorry, but serving a "not good" pizza doesn't keep a place in business for 60 years. Sixty years is a long long time! Dave I wanted to do a full circle here, six years later. I went to Vic's today. Going there today reminded me of this past post and how I once spoke defensively about Vic's. Today made me realize how I shouldn't judge a book by its cover, or its age. The pizza at Vic's is mediocre at best. The sauce had a garlic taste which repeated on me throughout the day. The place does however have a nice pizza place parlor/pub decor, but that's about it. Go back for food? Not necessary. The pizza sauce congealed as me and one other guy ate a single large pie. The sauce tasted more like something that should have been served on pasta. I will not go out of my way for pizza at Vic's anymore. Sorry to write something negative about a place that's older than most, however their pizza doesn't do it for me.
  4. A great little gem in Campbell's Junction. http://belfordbistro.com/. Lots of writeup at chowhound.
  5. I'm probing again to see if anyone knows of a 3-bean chili, with both Pork (Shoulder I think) & Stew Beef. I recall the beans requiring pre-soaking. Thanks
  6. 2 for 2 - closed it's now Gianna's.. not sure how it's doing. hopefully they do well, but I won't try it unless i'm prompted
  7. A new resturant opened in Belford (Middletown Township): Belford Bistro So far I went twice, each for a dinner and a lunch. So far they are 2 for 2. I'll work on getting PDF of the menu. Please give this little guy a try. Read below for starters. http://www.chowhound.com/topics/491445
  8. Hey guys: I don't know if this is the correct place for this posting but I'm desperate and looking for a chili recipe. My wife made it about 3 years ago. All I remember was that it had the following characteristics: 1. Pork AND stew beef (I think 1.5 lb of each) 2. Three types of beans 3. Cooked in a slow cooker (crock pot) This recipe was printed from an online site. I’m certain it had the other chili basic ingredients. I cannot find that recipe anywhere. Can somebody help me? Thanks, Dave
  9. My good friend just called this afternoon on his way back from lunch and reported that the pie is even better than Hudson street with the added addition of fresh antipasto. Sammy Amico is making the pies here. Long wait for lunch but we know a guy who isn't supposed to hold tables but you know...I'm going for lunch next Friday and will report back firsthand ← i'm waiting...
  10. Another newcomer? Never heard of it.. Website.. I'll wait until I hear something exciting
  11. I went to Bistro Jeanty last night. My only two complaints are (1) the meals took forever to come to the table (at least 1 hour) and when they did, (2) my escargot was still frozen. Other than that the place is very cute and my steak tartare was excellent. I almost went to Tom Keller's Ad Hoc, but didn't feel like waiting. For a Monday night it was packed. I tried doing a search but Egullet's sophisticated search engine doesn't allow me to search the name (i.e., One or all of your search keywords were below 4 characters or you are searched for words which are not allowed, such as 'html', 'img', etc. Please go back and increase the length of these search keywords or choose different keywords."). I wish I would have waited and ate fried chicken for $45. I'm sure it would have been exceptional. Any thoughts? Thanks.
  12. There's always Arthur's in North Brunswick. Casual steak, burger & brew joint... 644 Georges Rd North Brunswick, NJ 08902 (732) 828-1117 edit... my mistake. they sold out to Harold's deli and are now run differently http://www.arthurssteakhouse.org/ they apparently kept operations the same but are now run under new ownership. I have no experience here since and cannot back them. Try and tell.
  13. Mustard pie? Sounds disgusting... It actually tastes good???
  14. Now THAT is a white pie I'd really like!! Is the garlic sauteed first, or just spread raw, and allowed to cook in the oven? Too often white pies are studded with broccoli. I do not like broccoli on my pie, Sam I Am! ← Denino`s Pizzeria opened in Strathmore plaza, Rte. 34, Aberdeen, NJ. Finally... great pizza close to home. What a great pie! I only had the sausage... it was unique... great. It's a must-try for all of you guys. I hope they remain consistent.
  15. I like the Sitting Duck after the races.... It's nice and close, and casual. Or you can take a ride to Pier Village where's there's a few good places..... I haven't been to Avenue but here it's very good, but drinks are at NYC rates...
