Monmouth County-good restaurant for Anniversary dinner?

k8t13 Jul 14, 2006 05:13 AM

My husband and I are celebrating our second anniversary this summer and would love to find a romantic but not stuffy restaurant with excellent food. We're bored of our usuals (Bistro Ole, Piccola Italia, Buena Sera). Any good suggestions?

    Moonstruck in Asbury Park...
    Indigo Moon is a great suggestion though.

      "Moonstruck in Asbury Park..."

      Yes it is. That's why I said that Indigo Moon was in Atlantic Highlands. :-)

      Indigo Moon is Atlantic Highlands would be a great choice for a special occasion. They serve inventive and well prepared French influenced New American cuisine in a relaxed but classy setting. The prices are what you'd expect for a special occasion place but the fact that it's BYO takes some of the edge off that.

        Wow, I just looked at their menu-my mouth is watering! Everything sounds delicious. The BYOB fact makes it a perfect choice too. Thanks so much!!

          Have you ever heard of The Mill? It's in Spring Lake and I must say, the atmosphere is quite romantic...perfect for a nice anniversary dinner. The prices aren't too bad, but it's not cheap. Like I said before, the restaurant is really nice. It's clean, quiet, romantic. If you do decide to go, I'm sure you'll enjoy it! :)

            Only a few thoughts:

            Fromogerie (French) Rumson

            Angelica's (Italian) BYOB Sea Bright

            Bobo's 33 (Mediterran) Atlantic Highlands

            Salt Creek Grille (American) Rumson

            Once I think of more, I will post. ALl of the above have websites, so you can look at the menu before going.

            Happy Anniversary!
