Osso bucco in Monmouth or Ocean Cty
Gaetanos in Red Bank. I stopped going to Gaetanos years ago, after one too many disappointments like slimy salad greens and less than fresh seafood. But I always loved the meat entrees including osso bucco and beef braciola. They are BYOB, although they have a special arrangement to see a NJ wine. You can bring your own wine.
I haven't been there in years. Perhaps someone else has recent experience?
Lubrano'sTrattoria on Hwy 34 in Wall makes a good osso bucco, not sure if it is a special or on the regular menu. The place has bad acoustics, I have been there on a Saturday and found it hard to hear anyone at my table. Other than that, all the food there is good, especially the dipping sauce. It is THE best.
