No love for devino?
With the excitement over the Belford Bistro (much deserved, by the way!), I am surprised that no one has posted about devino bar and bistro (in Hazlet). My husband and I visited a while ago and I posted about our dinner. I'm wondering what's keeping people away - location? the fact that it's not byob? I remember it being a bit more expensive (but may that may just be because of the alcohol cost)... It was a nice experience and a similar restaurant so I'm just curious why it may not be getting the attention that the Belford Bistro is. http://www.devinobarbistro.com/
"devino serves 5.5 oz portions of wine in
dramatically oversized 16 oz stemware for
your swirling and sniffing pleasure.
Remember: the glass isn’t two-thirds empty;
it’s one-third full."
Any restaurant that places this caveat on their wine menu is either bold or taking a chance that forewarned patrons will be hesitant and possibly disappointed. Having said that, the Angus burger I had there recently was prepared to my liking and more than enough for lunch. Under 10.00 for lunch always makes me happy.
