Take-out/ corporate catering near Brick or Lakewood, NJ
Please help- having a meeting with 6 people next week and I need to order trays or sandwiches.
Joe Leone's in Pt. Pleasant is outstanding. Great gourmet sandwiches, salads, etc. Maybe this is too far from your meeting place, but if you are willing to drive it would be worth the trip. I went to the Country Store for a sandwich when my father was in the hospital nearby. Pretty decent, but I have not idea about the catering, so I would call.
Another option in Point (and they may deliver) is Irv and Karens Hot Pastrami on Rt. 88. When they were here in Toms River we used to order from them quite a bit for client meetings and functions. Their corned beef and pastrami were fabs as was the chicken soup and freshly made turkey.
I'll second mschow's recommendation for Villa Vittoria. While I've haven't been in a while I do recall it serving solid Italian and the setting should fit your need quite nicely. Otherwise, there are not too many "semi-nice" places for dinner in Brick/Lakewood (especially Lakewood). Coming to think of it, you can also try the Pilot House in Brick but there its all setting with pretty average to below average food.
Try Mulberry Street (either Brick or Toms River) all the time - they do a great penne with vodka sauce, sublime chicken francaise, and good salads... Their bread is terrific too.
In Brick I would recommend
La Strada Restaurant
1643 Route 88
Brick, NJ 08724
We have been there recently, but, have eaten there several times over the past few years and its alway been food and it nice place.
For Chinese I would highly recommend
Pagoda Tea House
700 Route 70, Shore Plaza
Lakewood, NJ 08701
Also, in Brick is
292 Princeton Avenue,
WE have never had a bad meal there either. Parking in the back off off Davos Road. You enter thru their bar into a nice dining room.
We just ate there this weekend and the have great Chinese food and also Thai food, too. Very good food and service.
