Chart House Seafood ?
-or Arthur's Landing in Weehawken: ever been? Like it? Other local preferances
haven't been to chart house but arthur's landing has become pretty solid. New chef, new menu, revamped, stuff like that.
the chart house is a chain and performs as such. Arthur's Landing strikes me as a vanity project. the food still is not up to NYC standards (regardless of various reports to the contrary) to my mind, but honestly, the view can't be beat, and it's a nice place overall. head and shoulders above the chart house without question.
for serious seafood look for places without a serious view of the water.
I live in NY and will be in NJ for dinner, thought dinner in New Jersey with a view of the city is a good compromise. Any other recommendations: Edgewater? Jersey City?
