Your top 3 in New Jersey

A dinner anywhere for my husband and me is what we are being given as a return for a big favor. So now what? What would your three top choices be in New Jersey for a special dinner/ Please don't include Rats or David Drakes. Thanks for the help!

      1. Here are my top three -- one for each part of the state. :)

        Tre Piani
        120 Rockingham Row
        Princeton, NJ

        Don't let the shopping area setting fool you - this is a serious foodie place. Also marvelous wine list and attentive service, but a bit on the noisy side.

        The Frog and The Peach
        29 Dennis Street
        New Brunswick
        New Jersey 08901
        http://www.frogandpeach.com/
        Famous and justly so.

        Il Capriccio
        633 Rt. 10 East
        Whippany, NJ 07981
        http://www.ilcapriccio.com/
        Elegant setting, outrageous food.

          Il Capriccio, I forgot about that place...amazing food. I went once and never made it back.

          I agree with The Frog and the Peach also. A little less formal, more hip, but still great food and keen wine list is Marco and Pepe in Jersey City.

            Your choice.....excellent food, small portions, big prices...
            your choice

          2. re: mcsheridan

            I agree I have always had great meals at all three of those restaurants. I guess longevity is the key to consistency.

                  Took a long while to understand. Good one.

              1. Do you want my 2007 best or my 2013?

                1. I would go with:

                  Casa Guiseppe - Edison
                  Tre Pianio - Princeton
                  Il Villagio - Parsippany
