  1. Is there any type of food in particular that you would prefer? Is there anything you definitely DONT want?

    1. re: NiKoLe1625

      we like all kinds of food, continental, or american

    2. Summit - Roots Steakhouse
      Livingston - Striphouse
      W. Orange - The Manor, Highlawn Pavillion

      1. Okay, well givent htat you are pretty open ehre are some of my favorites. I'm from Livingston so im familiar with the area. Do yourself a favor and stay away from the Striphouse. Its not that good!
        Summit: The Huntley Tavern (upscale comfort food! SO good!)
        Livingston: Nero's Grill (they ahve everything...steak, seafood, great salads, etc..)
        West Caldwell: Trattoria Fresco (Best italian restaurant in the area, but might be a bit far)
        W. Orange: Highlawn Pavillion (Great views of Manhattan)

        If i think of some others ill definitely post them!

            Summit is VERY close. Probably 10-15 min (maybe not even). From the SH mall, just continue on Rt. 24 and you are there! THere are a lot of very good dining options in Summit! Its a great town!

        2. Serenade and Scalini Fedeli on main drag Chatham; both within 1 mi. of the mall.

          1. i second Restaurant Serenade in Chatham. Google this and you can find their website. they have a very comprehensive site which includes directions, so you will get travel time (it is close). I have not been to Scalini Fedeli. There is also a very upscale restaurant in the Hilton at the short hills mall. I read a review about it last year and i sounded top notch. You will need reservations (hopefully not too late) i'm sure for all of these restaurants.
