Any suggestions for good food and excellent service in SHREWSBURY, NJ?
I'm looking for a local upscale but not too upscale (no chains) restaurant with excellent service.
I would like to give a gift certificate. Food type might be continental, American or Italian? Maybe a delicious steak house?
The zip code of the recepient is 07701
If anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated.
I agree that San Remo is very good. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food and service were great
My favorite is Piccolo Italia (sp?) in Ocean in Cobblestone Village. Blows Angelica's away in my opinion. Excellent food and good wine selections.
Thyme Square in Red Bank on Broad street is also good. Hard to get into on a weekend though.
Nicholas, in Middletown (adjacent to Shrewsbury), has similar pricing as Fromagerie but is far superior in every way. Sensational cuisine; polished, yet, cordial service; and stylish, very comfortable ambiance are what make it one of the best restaurants in the state.
Le Fandy, in nearby Fair Haven, is another excellent option. While the surroundings are much more casual, service is friendly and efficient, and the cuisine is superb.
Btw, in accordance with the way Chowhound admins have split NJ between two boards, your request actually belongs on the Mid-Atlantic board because Shrewsbury and surrounding towns are in central, not northern, NJ.
