Great meal at Lo Bianco in Collingswood, NJ

Just tried this place the other night and had a nice experience. Started with the grilled romaine salad that came lightly accented with goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. Then had the seared salmon that was served with an interesting mix of things on the plate: red and yellow beets, sauteed spinach, onion confit, which all worked very nicely together. Too full for dessert. Entree prices between $15-25. I understand that this restaurant relocated from Margate, but had never heard of them before.

    Thanks smn, while it will be hard for us not to hit Blackbird when in Collingswood, Lo Bianco looks interesting.
    Here is a website for those interested:

      I really have to wonder how all these Italian restaurants are going to make it in Collingswood. I think there are 8 in just that small town. Even if they are all good, it seems like overkill for a small area. I haven't tried Blackbird yet, but look forward to it.

        Just to keep the record clear, LoBianco, while it has an Italian name, isn't an Italian restaurant. They bill themselves as "new American". I have not been but have had great reports on it from friends. It's under the Lumberyard condominiums, on a side street, (Powell Lane) if anyone is interested.
