    They had it in the meat department at Whole Foods in Middletown the last time I was there (7/25). It is on the menu at Restaurant Nicholas but I haven't tried it.

      I've had it at Nicholas, it's amazing!

      I've seen it at Whole Foods in Princeton too.

      The Belford Bistro serves an app. that I believe they called Butcher's Bacon which is braised Pork Belly - it's amazing.

        The asian mkts on Rte 18 in East Brunswick and on Rte 27 in Franklin have pork belly- both whole and portioned out. Also the the buthcer at the Amish mkt in Kingston sells it.
