Early dinner preshow izod center
Going to see Bruce Sat night. I am looking for good food, efficient service, something delicious and not fancy. We will probably be eating at around 4, so a place that is open for lunch and does not close between lunch and dinner is a necessity.
We had a decent meal at Park and Orchard Thursday night-they get you in and out in plenty of time...I don't know that you'll be dreaming of the place later, but the salads are good and the pasta is pretty good-and it's a relaxed place, wear what you want...and not expensive. It only started to fill up around 6:00.
Another positive aspect is that it's to the west of the Arena, and you can get to the concert by going up Hackensack St to 120-we were there in less than 10 minutes.
And you'll need the energy-another non-stop 3 hour + show-great stuff.
