Lunch & Shopping in Montclair NJ

I am meeting a friend for lunch in Montclair. Neither of have ever been there but we hear it's a great town. Any suggestions for lunch? Looking for reasonably priced places where we could also get a glass of wine. A place that makes great and interesting salads would be perfect. Would love info on the layout of the town as well, i.e., is their a very walkable downtown area where we could get lunch and do some shopping without having to drive? Also, what kind of stores are in town? chic, artsy, ???

Thanks, guys!

  1. Hi - please keep responses limited to suggestions for where this poster can find lunch.


    1. Montclair has a lot of great places to eat, but since I almost never have lunch there, I'll hold back from a specific recommendation. But about the wine part: most places are BYO, which I think is great. You can find a good bottle at Amanti, right in the center of town on Church St. Raymond's, a few doors down, might meet your criteria for lunch.
