Anything good near Tenafly? [Moved from Mid-Atlantic Board]

My elderly, food-loving parents live in Tenafly, so I thought I'd consult my favorite site and ask for them. They'd appreciate anything decent, as long as it's not too noisy (they'd go early, so that's probably not a problem), dirty, or difficult for a woman with a cane to maneuver into. There's so much overpriced, pretentious-but-not-very-good stuff there. They go into the city a lot, but it'd be so nice to find them some more neighborhood options. Thanks...

  1. They already may have these restaurants on their speed dial but diners of a certain age seem to like Segretto's in Tenafly(Italian), Samdam in Cresskill (turkish), River Palm in Edgewater(steak and $$). Also good is Tapas de Espana in Englewood. None of these options are incredible but all are more than OK and are good value (except for River Palm).

      Samdam IS INCREDIBLE. Try there shepard salad,kebab, Samdam special (chicken in a wine cream sauce). Best Baklava I ever tasted.

    2. I had a great appetizer meal at axia, the upscale greek taverna in Tenafly, a couple of months ago, then a not-so-stellar full coursed meal there a month later. They've probably already gone, but it's a nice space.

        Thank you! They've mentioned a couple of those, and I'll pass on the rest. You might've made some elders happy.
