We are meeting friends from California in May and need a recommendation for a
restaurant in or near Piscataway. Nothing too pricey, we especially like Sushi, any
other Asian cuisine or Italian. Thanks - Lindy Lou

    for italian- lou cas is in edison which is about 20 minutes from the center of piscataway. new brunswick is right there though and there are PLENTY of good options there too- daryl, steakhouse 85, makeda, etc. also lucas ristorante is about 2-30 minutes away in somerset and is consistently good.

      Girasole in Bound Brook is always a favorite. BYOB. May want to make a reservation.

        In Edison: Wonder Seafood on Route 27 just north of Plainfield Avenue (called Stelton Road in Piscataway), an excellent Hong Kong style place.

          Not in Piscataway but in nearby Highland Park are two wonderful restaurants, Pithari Taverna and Seven Hills of Istanbul. If you really want Asian or Italian, I would cross the river into New Brunswick. Search "New Brunswick" and you will find many discussions about the restaurants there.

            There are a lot of good options in New Brunswick, but I'd also suggest Cafe Primavera on JFK Blvd in Somerset. It's Italian, with a large menu, inexpensive, BYO.
