  1. In West Orange, on the corner of Eagle Rock and Pleasant Valley Way, there is a luncheonette that has been empty for months. I don't know if that location would work for you.
  2. I don't remember exactly, but we paid a little over $100 for a bottle of wine, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees and a tip.
  3. Had an excellent dinner at Fortunato. My husband and I started off sharing a pasta special as an appetizer. It was rigatoni with mushrooms in a truffle sauce - Excellent! Then I had the halibut wrapped in proscuitto over corn, potatoes and mushrooms in a light cream sauce. My husband had the semolina crusted (I think it was semolina) skate fish. I can't remember right now what it was served with. Both entrees were delicious. We were too full for dessert, so we just went up to the bar for an after dinner drink. I love this bar. Although it's small - there is no smoking!!!!!! They had a nice flat screen TV though for my husband to catch the Giant game. The staff is very friendly. Both the owner and the chef came over to table to speak with us. We will definitely be returning again very soon. I forgot to mention that the owner mentioned that they serve lunch as well.
  4. You may want to try Fortunato Ristorante right in Lyndhurst. I have not been there yet, but I have heard great things about it from friends who have gone. I plan on going this week. I will let you know what I think after I go. Rosie mentioned that she enjoyed her dinner there as well. http://forums.egullet.org/index.php?showto...54&hl=Fortunato
  5. Supposed to meet friends here for dinner. Was wondering if anyone has been here? How was the food? Anything in particular that I should or shouldn't order? Thanks for your input.

    22 West

    Does anyone know who is cooking at 22 West since the 2 chefs left? Has anyone eaten there since they left and how was the food? Thanks for the info.
  7. We really enjoy Due Amici on Eagle Rock Avenue. They are a BYOB. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable.
  8. Has anyone been here and could you give me some feedback on the place? Thanks.
  9. I spoke with Nancy the other day, and she said he will be working with her so that she can get a little time off.
  10. Is Jocelyne still there or is the the new chef/owner already there?
  11. Are these the same Egans who owned a restaurant in Kearny?
  12. I would like a restaurant on Alan Wong or Chef Mavros level if the taxi fare were not too much and if we did not have to be dressed up. We will be taking a taxi, so something within a reasonable taxi fare would be great. How far is Alon Wong or Chef Mavros from the airport?
  13. I will be flying from Kaui to Honolulu and then out of Honolulu at 10:45 PM on a Sunday. I figured maybe I would take an early afternoon flight out of Kaui and kill time in Honoluly before my flight out that night. Since I won't be spending any other time on Oahu this trip, I thought a good way to kill time would be a nice dinner before we leave. What is one of the better rated restaurants in Oahu tthat I can take a taxi to from the airport and not have to be dressed up for? I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
  14. Due Amici in West Orange is a very good, BYO Italian. They are always having afternoon parties and I think everyone would like the food. I'm not sure if a BYO works for you.
  15. Why not give the customer the choice. Let them choose between an entree at $15 or with side dishes at $17. It would be nice to have the choice. That way, if you are hungry that day - you can choose to order with the sides. If you are not hungry- then don't order them. Also, if you don't like the side dishes that day - dont' order them. If you do like them - then order them. It would make me feel that I have more to say about what I'm getting and what I'm paying for.
  16. You could go to Due Amici which is a good, reasonably priced, BYO Italian in West Orange. They have a large back room where they may be able to accommodate a large group. The restaurant is right down the hill from the Highlawn Pavilion. Maybe you can go there for after dinner drinks.
  17. I want to meet a friend for lunch in Clifton by Rt. 3. Which place would you suggest for a good casual lunch? Thanks.
  18. This article about the no-smoking bill was in today's Star-Leder. http://www.nj.com/search/index.ssf?/base/n...starledger?ntop
  19. The write-up sounds like lunch. Do you know if they serve dinner?
  20. If you are willing to take the ride to New Brunswick, I would give Stage Left a try. Very nice atmosphere and delicious food.
  21. I would say the best "high end" brunch in the area would be at the Terrace Restaurant in the Short Hills Hilton. I have not been there, but I've heard it's very good.
  22. I think the food at the Bluestone is pretty good and pretty reasonable prices. The people must like it because there is usually a wait to get in. Can't comment on the coffee since I don't drink it.
  23. On Church Street there is Raymond's and Church Street Cafe. I'm not sure if South Park serves brunch. Bluestone Coffee on Watchung also serves brunch.
  24. Has anyone been here? Can you tell me how it is?
