In search of REAL food!

Deborah Sep 28, 1999 09:06 PM

Can anyone recommend someplace in central NJ where I can find great, old-fashioned, gramma food? Like meatloaf with brown gravy and smashed potatoes or Lamb stew or Sauerbraten or Chicken & dumplings?

I've been searching for a couple of years, but everything "homey" has been discarded for either "healthy" (Damn the Food Police -- "Nutrition Action")or "haute cuisine", which is fine for a treat.

Until I find it out there, I'll be cooking it all myself ....
