    1. Steakhouse 85, in New Brunswick. Scheduled opening: October.

      1. You can keep up with restaurant openings and closings at:

        1. Here's what I posted in a recent thread on the Ferry House in Princeton:

          There's a lot on the horizon for new Princeton places, including:

          -- JL Ivy, just opened last month in the old Rusty Scupper, Princeton. Going thru the start up process. Lots of potential. See related post on this board regarding.

          -- Ruth's Chris Steak, recently opened in Forrestal Village (Plainsboro) just off the Route 1 South, Westin entrance.

          -- Eno Terra, soon to open in the old Winepress (Kingston). Owned by the Momo brothers who own Terresa's, Mediterra and Witherspoon Bread company in Princeton. Eno Terra will be a wine bar and restaurant. Construction looks complete. Heard they may have a delayed 2008 opening due to some site problems.

          -- Elements. Route 206 (Bayard Lane), Princeton. Scott Anderson (previously consulting at One53, and prior at Lawrenceville Inn, Mediterra, Ryland Inn, Les Copains and others) will be the exectutive chef. New building is under construction. Looks like a late 2008 opening may be possible. Cuisine will be upscale fresh and local new american with tasting menus, a chef's table in the kitchen, ect. Will be a welcome addition to the area!

          -- BT20, Bobby Triggs redo of the Peacock Inn, Princeton. Fine dining with a bar/lounge. Chef Trigg is making very, make that glacerly slow progress on complete rebuild of the Inn & restaraunt. Winter opening likely, doubt sooner.

          -- BT Bistro, Bobby Triggs redo of the Charlie Browns at the route 1, Palmer Inn (Clarion hotel) West Windsor. No info on expected opening. Doesn't look like much work is in progress.

          and finally,

          -- Dunkin Donuts, under construction at the Princeton Shopping Center!!

          Lot's for the Princeton area hounds to look forward to!

              Thanks for the links. Looking forward to enjoying the elements of many great meals & will be watching for the first sign of life from that Jade suite!

          2. As noted by the OP, Due Mari Pesce e Vinoteca is slated to open in New Brunswick. It's on Albany Street and should open next weekend. FYI, this restaurant is owned by the folks who own Due Terre Enoteca in Bernardsville. I wonder if they'll be handing out ear plugs on opening night. :-))
