    For lunch The Turning Point is very good. It's at Pier Village.
    Dinner options can include Tavolo's, Charley's, Piccolo Forno, Wasabi, Cask 591 has a large wine selection by glass, Pearl of Lisbon (Portuguese), Kan Zaman (mediterranean), Tuzzio's for very old-time NJ Italian, even Jack's Rib & Ale House for bar scene. You may prefer the new (and untried) Boardwalk Cafe for beach views.
    For late night dessert and coffee Carmella's in Pier Village has several good choices.
    Club/lounge scene there's Mix on Brighton Ave or Elements in Sea Bright. Cask 591 may have music in their upstairs lounge.

      tom have you tried Kan Zaman? Pass by it all the time - Are they the same people that owned Ranoosh? The only time i see people there is after sundown on Saturdays, other than that is seems to be empty.... love midle eastern food so hoping you have tried it!

        Yes, it is the same owner as Ranoosh. The food is just as good, but still strict Kosher. So only kosher wine.

          I was there when it was Ranoosh but not when it moved and became Kan Zaman? I enjoyed Ranoosh. We ordered the app sampler. The chef gave us complimentary app that he was trying out. So the table was filled with many small plates. Looked like a tapas place :)

          In the old Ranoosh building will be a place called Emy's. Not open yet.

        The cuisne is Italian.
