  1. Tsiplitzky's, (sp?) at the Chelsea Hotel
  2. I thik Rat's in Hamilton, especially recently, belongs in the top tier. Stage Left rarely disappoints,too.
  3. Please, get your savory spices out of my desserts. That one should be on the list. the 90's was the decadeof over reduced sauces...the oughts were the decade of Rosemary ice cream.
  4. We went last night,party of two at seven. He used the tables and chairs from the Pt Pleasant place...really really uncomfortable and simply don't match the victorain style house the restaurant resides in. Service was fine...one mix up when they poured still into my sparkling water, but they replaced it w. smile. Started with Sardines, a special, and Wild Mush soup. Sardines were great, fantastic balance of flavors...oil of the slightly warmed fish, with what was perhaps rice? vinegar, shredded cabbage, great dish. Wild Mush Soup was deeply flavored, another winner. I had the salmon entree..sauteed to a nice rare, good brussel sprouts accompaniement, small-ish portion. Bob had the steak...I am not a fan of grass fed from a taste perspective, and this was quite thin, so difficult to be presented "very very rare" as ordered...it came out MR. Ho hum potato (parsnip?) puree and great fresh peas. ( locally sourced steak..but where did Spring peas come from in jan in NJ?) Mr Foy was there, charming and gracious, greeting the guests. Pointed out his artwork, which really shows talent. My seat faced a wall with a plain, taupe carpet of some kind...luckily my husband is handsome and engaging, because there was not much else to look at...hopefully he will replace that with his own pieces. Rec'd a complimentary dessert that was really very good...chocolate mouse but thicker w. hazelnut crust. Will definitely include dessert on our next visit. Small menu, perhaps 4 or 5 apps, 6 or so entrees..and they were not serving two of them, but also offered two app specials and two dinner specials. byo, $82 for two, worth a visit.
  5. If yu have a double oven, pheasant is a nice choice...wrap the breat in acon, make a golden raisin/white wine sauce...it is such a delicate bird, and it seems festive to me...wonderful with champagne.
  6. Have not been, but am familiar with his food from restaurants past. I have heard generally good reviews of the food, but also consistant complaints with the service...and a bad expereince with the chef when this was pointed out to him. I am looking forward to a visit this week, he always did upscale comfort food well so it will be interesting to see if he sticks with that.
  7. They are trying to re-open...but really, it was such a dinasour of a place.
  8. more than 72 hours, but here's what's in and out in our world: IN: Brennans Breakfast Couchon butcher Acme( for the oyster po boy) Looks like a tourist trap Royal St Oyster house had the best shucked fresh french Market has the best spice for boiled crawfish...NOT the best spce, but one of the better french Quarter places Bayonna, becoming a classic Commanders Brunch and what's out herbsaint. Yawn Galatoires, the service sucked, We had a bouncy cheerleader, how annoying. Acme (for the shucked fresh) Just my two cents. Boudain at Jazz Fest was not spicy enough, wish I had planned a road trp to Eunice.
  9. I have not posted in a while, and haven't been to a restaurant that motivated me. I've been more and more impressed each time I visit the CG in DC and Providence RI. So, after the wine tasting last night, I decided to skip Prie Rib and make the resos, 6 ppl at 7pm, for Capital Grille. Start to finish, absolutely great. From the smile of the hostess, to the attention of the waiter,to the wine list, to every dish placed before us ( except the amuse bouche) it was spot on. I'm resigning my membership to the "chains suck" club.
  10. moving this to the top, because two people in the last two weeksgave me what sounded to be a pretty educated, positive reviews..anyone been?
  11. Nottingham Way is in Hamilton Twp , with a trenton mail address. is this the one near Quakerbridge Rd?
  12. Adding another request for Bath suggestions...travelling from Princeton New Jersey, US with my very un-traveled father to see my son who is spending a semester abroad at at Univ of Westminster...would like to show both of them the English Countryside and feel Bath is a good choice for diversity and distance...a charming meal to top a charming visit would be great...traditional pub food is fine, just looking for atmosphere and well prepared food.
  13. I'm not a ratings person..but my choices in Philly: best place in Philly is Vetri, by far. Barclay Prime is an above grade steak house.
  14. David Drake gets my vote. The caveat is that I went to Seranade with a larger party and was not as focussed on the food, and the caveat is that I dislike the decor and ambiance of Nicholas enough to have it affect my meal.
  15. Chick and Nello's in Hamilton, Vinnie's Clam Bar in Manville.
