    Fiddleheads in Jamesburg is pretty good. Triumph Brewery in Princeton and the bar at Alchemist and Barrister are both serviceable.

    RGR had some good recs in nearby New Brunswick. Here's a link

      I lived in Princeton a few years ago and one of my favorite places for both sushi and chinese was the sunny garden. http://www.sunnygarden.net/index.html. you might also like Theresas pizetta cafe if it's still there and there was a fine french spot across fron the alchemist called L'ahaires? The tap room under the nassau inn used to have live music and a cool scene on the weekends.

        You will be fine. Here is one opinion on the matter:

        I love Blue Point Grill for very fresh simply prepared seafood. More than that, there is a retail shop next door that prepared amazing boxed lunches. My favorite was a freshly grilled tuna steak sandwich, on top of steak fries.

        There are a number of great pizza places in and around princeton. My favorites are:
        DeLorenzo's in Trenton
        Cranbury Pizza in Cranbury
        Conte's Pizza in Princeton
        Old World in Princeton

        People make a lot of jokes about food in Princeton. The fact is that there are a lot of very good places, and a nice variety, especially for a pretty small town. Plus, there are lot of cities close by that have good places. Finally, you are one hour from Manhattan.

          Pizza Star in Princeton Shopping Center is good for a quick slice.
