Main Street Trattoria, Metuchen, NJ

Meeting some great friends halfway in Metuchen and plan to go to Main Street Trattoria. Anyone been? Any comments? Also, we'll probably arrive early...any place to have a drink beforehand in the area? In fact, what's IN the area? Not very familiar with Metuchen. We'll meet at 7 pm and might have an hour to kill.
Thanks 'hounds!

  1. I'm pretty sure there is a bar in the Metuchen Inn. It's on Route 27, which bisects Metuchen. A short walk from Main Street, which I don't know at all.

    1. check out the cornerstone, off main st, in metuchen.

      1. Honestly, Trattoria was not my best Italian restaurant. I was not impressed at all, although what I had was decent...

        1. It's family-friendly, but the food is mixed. Probably not what veteran Chowhounds are after. Torino's on New Street might be a better bet. BTW the Cornerstone is closed, it is now something called Novita's Bistro & Lounge, but I haven't been - apparently Italian.

            again? thats too bad, used to be a fun place. thanks for that headsup. metuchen's going thru changes w/ restaurants. i dont find any "great"

          2. I did not enjoy food at this palce, not sure how you would meet. I agree, metuchen nin would be much nicer to meet, do not recall torinos as having a bar to sit at.
