  1. The weakening economy has forced one of North Jersey’s foremost dining destinations to be shuttered, 10 days before the year’s biggest dining weekend. KEVIN R. WEXLER / STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER NJ.com People are seen inside Arthur's Landing in Weehawken on January 15, 2009 following the crash of Flight 1549. Arthur’s Landing, a landmark on the Hudson River in Weehawken and a dining destination for Broadway-goers and gourmands seeking New York style at New Jersey prices, unexpectedly closed Tuesday. “The severity of this downturn and the unlikelihood of a turnaround in the near future sadly leaves u
  2. I went here for lunch today for the first time. We had the sushi special and it was amazing..could not have been fresher. My friend said she may go back for dinner with her kids and the waitress said they may not like it as it is authentic Japanese. We laughed, asking if she is telling us not to come? She explained that many do not expect the authenticity of the cuisine. My friends kids would actually love it. Great pick!
  3. Mooncake Foods: from NYMAG: 28 Watts Street, Soho: Two couples joined by marriage—plus a restless mother-in-law who can’t stay out of the kitchen—give this comfy Pan-Asian canteen a conspicuous family feel. With its retro-diner décor, off-the-beaten-track address, and mostly $4–$8.25 price range, it’s a Soho anomaly where everything is made with care and served with a welcoming smile. It’s also a wellspring of savory sandwiches, salads, and snacks like springy wontons stuffed with snow-pea greens, sweetly spiced chicken wings, and delicate, exceedingly fresh jícama-stuffed spring rolls. Rec
  4. Thank you Daisy for your post. gee...not many with any ideas? hmmm. We ended up at Mooncakes and it was really good. I mean really good. Surprised no one mentioned it....I found great reviews everywhere and decided it was good for our needs. Great salad, nice staff, inventive menu. I would go again and again.

    Sabor Peru

    We finally went to Sabor Peru after trying to go on more than one Monday night....duh..closed Monday nights Anyway, we were very happy with the food and the service (we were the only ones there last night due to the storm). My friend and I used to frequent a Peruvian restaurant in Union City that was as authentic as they came and very good. We have yet to find a place that makes the Peruvian mussels and Jalea as well. I am thrilled to say Sabor Peru is my new favorite Peruvian restaurant. The mussels were fantastic, the Jalea (fried seafood) was more delicately prepared, and very good.
  13. We went here today and had a chocolate cupcake with dark chocolate frosting. It was good...but...so very small. I hoped the taste to be richer, but it was otherwise good. TOO small!! Just a little thing for 2$. Tom kept talking about Juniors cupcakes, and how big they are for the same price. He did say that this one was a bit tastier. Someone should leave a bigger cupcake pan on their doorstep.
  14. We went last night. Had the smoked chicken w/coleslaw, mac and cheese. I liked the sauces, the chicken was good, not great. Slaw was good, did not enjoy the mac and cheese. Oh...and fries which were just okay.....we would go back. The table next to us was more experimental and seemed to really enjoy a their meal a lot. Worth a try.
  15. smittysbbqjoint.com On Valley Brook Road, just opened in Lyndhurst. We might give it a try tonight. Anyone go yet?
