I am 3 blocks from the downtown area of Red Bank and the roads totally confuse me! *hint* I get lost easily. :) I miss Vietnamese, sushi, a Real butcher, anything that can't be got in rural Arkansas. ;) Fresh seafood..... drool. Thanks guys.

With a few months in the Red Bank area, you should be able to get into Manhattan at least a couple of times.

While visiting friends recently we made reservations for Nicholas (route 35) and totally enjoyed the

Caramelized Onion Soup, loved the Black Truffle, Honeycomb, and Bergamot Buttermilk Sea Scallops. Tasted the

Black Sea Bass with Clams,Potatoes in a Chowder Sauce and was eager to see what the spring menu will offer.

Shared the Tres Leches Cake,( Caramel Popcorn and Banana Ice Cream) but thought there was just too much going on to enoy.

You're in New Jersey, so eat Jersey foods!

Go to the local diner (Red bank has a good one downtown last time I checked) and get a breakfast of Taylor ham (actually pork roll) with egg and cheese on a kaiser roll.

For lunch go to any place that makes hot dogs, even a push cart, tho you'd be wise to seek out an "Italian" dog: all-beef frank deep fried with onions, peppers and potatoes served on pizza bread.

And speaking of pizza...too many good places to mention all over. But in 35 minutes you could be in Elizabeth for Santillo's (take out only) or Spirito's.

And just over the Raritan River bridge in Edison is Harold's, get the large pastrami sandwich and you'll have enough leftovers to feed the entire state of Arkansas.
