  1. Any recommendations on good places to buy interesting homemade sausages? Does anyone make their own? If so, any tips for the beginner?

    My waistline may not be thankful for your great suggestions, but my sweet tooth is.

    Is the state of dessert so desperate in NJ that no one has a recommendation?
  4. Any suggestions on places where you can enjoy a great dinner and end it with an equally great dessert. I've been hearing about Sugar in Phillipsburg that is a patisserie and restaurant. Anyone been there?
  5. Both are excellent, but very different. the atmosphere at HIgh Lawn is so grand - high ceilings, lots of gleaming brass around the open kitchen, and of course that incredible view. Stage Left is much mopre subdued and intimate. Their new place upstairs, Catherine Lombardi, is very attractive, with big stone fireplaces. The Italian fare is fabulous.
  6. Does anyone have any updated feedback on Le-Rendez Vous?
  7. Any suggestions on new places (opened in the last six months or so) to go in the garden state?
  8. Are these Bergen spots limited to sidewalk service, or do any of them have more private terraces?
  9. Wow! Thanks, sounds like I'll be busy all summer.
  10. As the snow refuses to melt, I'm fantasizing about warm weather meals under the sun or stars, on a patio surrounded by flowers and greenery. Kind of a gourmet secret garden. Does anyone have any recommendations for al fresco restaurants? Planning for the future may get me through the cold and mud.
  11. Latour is expensive, but my visit was wonderful. The intimate room is up in a tower with the western wall being all glass. Unfortunately the weather was bleak during my visit, but I can only imagine what it would be like at sunset.. There is a multi-course tasting menu, but also three course prix fixe options. The wine selections and cellar are unbelievable.

    Amidst all the controversy I had to try this place out. After a recent jaunt to Whole Foods I strolled across the street for the $8.95 lunch special and was not dissappointed. First course - Acili Ezme - a spicy tapenade style dish of chopped tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic and nuts, was addictive on the bread. The Main dish of Doner Kebab was tender and delicious. The lunch special does not include dessert, but I had to have the baklava - yum, double yum with the cute little glass of Turkish tea. I'd go back in hearbeat.
  13. I'm craving creme brulee. My best of the best is at Epernay in Montclair where they serve it in a shallow oval casserole that allows for a mouthful of crisp sugary topping in every bite. Any suggestions for other places to enjoy this decadent dessert?

    I'm in the northwest and sit-down or take-out would be fine.
