  1. It's done. There's a for sale sign out front.
  2. No loss if it's true. the owners were arrogant the place was too noisy and the food was pricey.

    Thanks Curlz! ← Great meal...very impressed. I had the beet salad and the duck breast. Everyone else had fish....the escolar and the ahi. Curlz...I winged it and their stemware was fine. Brought a 2007 Stadt Krems Gruner Veltliner and a 2008 St. Urbanshof Okfener Bockstein Riesling Kabinett. Both matched really well with the food. The service was excellent........very professional and attentive without being obtrusive. I can't wait to try Next Door!

    Going to Blu tonite for the first time for my birthday. Do they have decent stemware? I will be bringing some incredible wine and just wonder if I should bring my Riedels.
  5. When I drove up Route 10 the other day I saw a sign in the window of Saigon House...Thai Restaurant coming soon. Too bad. I liked Saigon House. Huge Bahn Mi for 4 bucks. Great food.
  6. Hello: Ricci's Goodbye: Lulu's Lulus went oob a while ago. It's been ricci's for a few months I think.
  7. sorry for the double post!
  8. Has anyone been to the new DeLorenzo's in Robbinsville yet? Jeff
  9. Seymour's is on it's 3rd incarnation. Originally owned by Seymour (Schramm I think his last name is); Lou Bucca bought it from Seymour. Lou owned it for years and sold it to a guy named Gary a year or 2 ago (Don't know his last name) He previously was a counterman at Livingston Bagel for 15 years. Gary has introduced some new menu items. But Seymour's has been a go to place for years. It's got a very interesting vibe to it, and the food is solid...nothing fancy but it works. Tragically Lou Bucca took his own life a few months ago.
  10. I went yesterday and had an INCREDIBLE Pastrami sandwich. It had that melt in your mouth quality that you get at Katz's. Mark the owner stopped by and asked how everything was and I gave him the thumbs up. Eppes essen just lost my business! Irving's is the real deal.
  11. I saw the sign from Route 10 also. My curiosity was aroused so I drove in to the parking lot. it looks like its going to be a Jewish/Kosher style Deli called Irving's.
  12. My two favorites are Nunzio's in Long Branch and DeLorenzo's. Trouble is BOTH are 50 miles from my house ;>(
  13. Actually, if you live in North Jersey, you can go into NYC and get a Chicago style dog @ Danny Meyer's Shake Shack in Madison Park @ 23rd street. It should be opening for the season in a few weeks.
  14. Curlz: I'll give them one more try but I'm not hopeful. And your right..the Bagel Nazi did make INCREDIBLE bagels. But i refuse to hand over my $ to people who are nasty and she took the prize. Jeff
  15. Update: Goodbye to Super duper bagels! The witch is gone but she must have taken her baker! The bagels are average at best. Now the best bagels in town IMHO are from Bagels 4 You. Super dupers' bagels are even crappier than Livingston Bagel!
  16. Its in a strip mall on South Livingston avenue, diagonally across from the Shop-Rite. Jeff
  17. Ding Dong the wicked witch is GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She's the only one too! the same bakers and the same nice girls are there and the new owner, from Jerusalem West. I had a nice conversation with him and told him I'd be a regular there now that the misery was gone!
  18. Spunky small woman? I do not go there any more even though they have the best bagels around.... she is widely known as the Bagel Nazi because of her nasty attitude, and I will not give any retailer my $ if they have an attitude. I HOPE SHE IS GONE SO i CAN GO THERE AGAIN!

The store's always full though, they must have cottoned on, you can let the standards slip, save a load of money and 99 percent of people don't even notice. I'm going to check Fiorelli's out on Saturday. " Uh...Joel Dean passed away in 2004 and Giorgio DeLuca has nothing to do with it since he and Joel sold the store years ago. Though it must sadden him to see how the quality has dropped, there's probably not a thing he can do.

  21. I heard some interesting news yesterday as i got my car washed on Rt. 10 in East Hanover. It seems that wegmans has bought out the Burger King on Route 10 across from Home depot. they are going to knock it down and redo that strip of route 10, which will give the proposed wegmans a better access to the highway WITHOUT causing traffic headaches. Becuase of this apparently the yown will now approve the Wegmans at the original site next to the High school. I hope this is true. i can't wait because frankly its a schlep to drive to Bridgewater or Woodbridge. Jeff
  22. jason wrote: I'm wondering if the pie that came out was actually "well done" or just off of well done, because of the heavy char on some parts of the pizza. I actually like mine that way. Maybe you actually need to tell them you want it that way to ensure crunchy/crispy crust. I always ask for it crispy and sure enough the Star pie was SOGGY MUSH. And for what its worth IMHO, DeLorenzo's and Star shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence. DeLorenzo's is the best pizza i've ever had anywhere. What sucks is that they are 50 miles from my house while Star is about 4. Jeff
  23. Not a fan either! No crunch to the pie! I did have a great pie at the Reservoir in Boonton last night, My wife wasn't feeling well so I went alone, sat at the bar, and ordered a bar pie with mushroom and sausage. Delicious and crispy. The Star tavern pies (even the plain ones) are greasy and have no real crunch. Just my .02 Jeff
