I finally went to Le Fandy in Fair Haven, NJ
OHHHHHHHHHHH! Where to start! Thanks to RGR and SEAL for the recommendation. The place was incredible, along with top notch service! I had the lobster crepe for an app., the Halibut for dinner and the delicious apple with carmel ice cream for dessert. My husband had the rock shrimp risotto for an app., the (filet mignon) steak for dinner, and a chocolate mousse for dessert.
Everything was truely wonderful. The meals were paced properly, and we truely enjoyed every morsel! I cannot wait to back!
No kudos necessary, just glad you enjoyed. After all, it's not like I cooked the food ;o)
On a separate note, I've decided that we monmouth co chowhounds should get together for a chowfest, if that is ok with you and your spouses. Check my post on it, if the admins leave it up.
If not, email me at:
btw, my wife thinks it is a lovely idea and we will gladly go anywhere with good food for it.
Hi Angelina, But just think -- you ended up saving gas, didn't have to pay any tolls, got free parking and, best of all, had a fabulous meal!
I tend to forget about the Ardore site. Restaurants pay to be on it, so I guess Le Fandy figures it's easier to let someone else do the heavy lifting rather than having to maintain a site of their own.
Belated birthday wishes to your husband. :-)
Hi RGR! Yes, we did wind up here for my husband's birthday and so delighted! I could not get ANYWHERE in the city unless we ate dinner at 10:30 pm! (That's what I get for waiting until the last minute!) Le Fandy should definately be on your list to go to. We are very picky and this place really amazed us! The quality of the food was outstanding. If you go to www.ardore.com you can see Le Fandy's menu. (You probably already know this :)
Anyway, thanks again and I hope you & your husband enjoy the weekend! (Please post any new restaurants you may try over the weekend! Thanks!)
Hey, Angelina, The kudos really belong entirely to seal because he gave it a thumbs ups based on recent experience, while our one dinner there, albeit a good one, pre-dated the current ownership.
So, do I take it this is where you decided to go for your husband's birthday? Glad to hear that you had a terrific experience all around. I'm moving it up on my NJ "go to" list.
