Dining in Flemington, NJ?

My husband and I will be in Flemington this Saturday and we are looking for a really great restaurant in town or the immediate area. It can be fine dining or casual, as long as the food is great. Any suggestions?

    I highly recommend Matt's Red Rooster Grill, in Flemington. The food is delicious, and the menu is built around using the massive grill that dominates the dining room on the first floor of the house in which the restaurant is situated. There are several tables there as well as 4 seats at the "bar" + additional seating on the second floor. During the warm weather months, they also have tables on the outdoor porch. Service is friendly and efficient. The overall ambiance is extremely pleasant. It's a BYO.

    Btw, the same owners just opened a new fish restaurant. While I haven't been there, if the food at the Red Rooster is any indication, the food at the new place is bound to be first rate.

      The fish place looks great - is it open?

        The new restaurant is called the Blue Fish Grill, on Central Ave., adjacent to Liberty Village. It's been open a little over a month. It's very casual- order at the counter, find a seat and they'll call out your name when the food is ready.
        I had the fish tacos which were delicious and my husband had a catfish po boy-also delicious.
        They serve 4-5 types of fish with your choice of 4 sauces, several sandwiches and baskets.

        I haven't been there personally, but my wife, whose taste I trust, has, and raves about Matt's RRG.

        For good Italian, from pizza to seafood, check out Max's Trattoria 31 out of town a bit in a strip mall on - you guessed it - Route 31. Good, dense bruschetta, interesting personal pizzas, great salad, and that isn't even mentioning the frequently changing list of tasty entress.

        Also, I've been wanting to get back to Viva Mexican on Broad St.
