We are fortunate enough to be seeing Bruce Springsteen play a small venue charity show in Asbury Park on Thursday.  Driving down the parkway from Edison area, does anyone have thoughts on where we could go for a pre-concert dinner?

Moonstruck in Ocean Grove. You need to get there early as they don't take reservations. BYO.

La Nonna Piaccone in Bradley Beach

Blue Marlin in Bradley Beach--Jamaican and BYO

Joe and Maggies in Long Branch

Ray's Seafood in Long Branch-not sure if they are BYO

Have a good time and be sure to give us a report.

Rosie:

Just to double check--are all of these places "casual dress?"  We'll most likely be in jeans/khakis for the concert.

Don't know how much I will actually eat, as I'm so excited--thanks for the ideas...

Rosie, I cannot thank you enough for giving us these recommendations.  We went to La Nonna Piancone, and it was simply wonderful!  The portions are very large, even when sharing, and the value is terrific.  Our party of four started with Mozzarella en carozza that was made with hearts of palm, a tower of crab cakes with grilled zucchini and eggplant over mesclun greens with tomato, olive and provolone, and a caesar salad.  For entrees, we had a meat lasagna (that was the size of a large brick!), shrimp and crabmeat sauteed in a lemon wine sauce with spinach, olives, artichoke hearts over angel hair, and filet of farm raised salmon with artichoke hearts, raisins and pignoli nuts served over a bed of risotto (absolutely to die for).  We couldn't fit in dessert, but took a  piece of chocolate caramel crunch cake to go, which we shared in the car after the concert (which was amazing--the concert and the cake!). With four glasses of wine and a soda, the bill for four people before tax and tip was 贬.  Definitely a place to return to!

Thanks again!

Casey
