Monmouth County-good restaurant for Anniversary dinner?

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?

  1. 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!

      Thanks so much for your help. I will definitely look up their websites.

    2. 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! :)

        1. 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!!

            Indigo Moon is a great suggestion though.

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