Café Loret

Much has been written over the years about culinary master Dennis Foy. He has been credited with being a driving force in the farm-to-table cuisine movement, and his string of incredibly successful restaurants includes The Tarragon Tree in Chatham, Dennis... Read More

Christine’s

Personality plus!!! That’s the only way to describe a delicious dinner at Christine’s in Atlantic Highlands. Chef owner Ron Marino gregariously greeted us with a “where-have-you-been” vibe that made you feel like you were going to dinner at your... Read More

Neapoli in Red Bank

We decided to leave waterfront dining to the visiting shore tourists and went to check out Neapoli, which has taken over the space that was occupied for years by Gaetano’s. It’s a quick turn off Broad Street, close to the Red Bank action but not right... Read More

Rooney’s Oceanfront Restaurant

The Beach Tavern

On a cold winter Wednesday, we got the urge to return to the water’s edge, and so we traveled to Monmouth Beach to give The Beach Tavern a try. As waterfront views go, this is a dandy. The restaurant, on the site of the former Sally T’s at the Channel... Read More

Piccola Italia

This month, we visited a restaurant that has been earning high ratings and customer loyalty since 2002. Piccola Italia is located in the Cobblestone Village strip mall in Ocean Township (or Oakhurst, depending on where you like to draw your line), just... Read More

Mar Belo

While much of the planet is searching for stuffing and turkey recipes for the Thanksgiving holiday, we chose the road less traveled and took a day trip to savor the cuisines of Portugal and Spain at Mar Belo in Long Branch. It was a trip worth making.... Read More
