Ridgefield Park

OK. I got the passports renewed as we have to cross the Driscoll Bridge tomorrow. The destination is ultimately Ridgefield Park for a press check. Thus the question: Is there anywhere in the vicinity to make the drive worth the hassle (and gas) or would I be better off detouring in Edison for Indian or Chinese?

EDIT - Cost and Cuisine are non-concerns if the food/experience are special; however, it will likely be mid to late afternoon so that may be an issue.

  1. Back in the day would tell you Petite SooChow, they seem to be open again after a temp closure by the Heath Dept, that being said, in good faith, cannot recommend.
    607 Gorge Rd Cliffside Park, NJ 07010 - (201) 313-1666

    Then there is John's Shanghai in Edgewater, have not been here in the last year or so, also very good.

    Mitsuwa Marketplace Edgewater very good Japanese if you have not been, lots of choices, probably very crowded on the weekend.

    Then north of Ridgefield in Fort Lee there are a few excellent places for traditional chinese and korean, but at that time of day, on the weekend, may not be worth the hassle.

    It really depends on how your day works out time wise, I find most restaurants are open from 12-3 for lunch. Yes Edison is a safe bet, and well NYC is not so far away for an early dinner...

    In summary, if I said nothing, that would have helped just as much - LOL

    1. I was just informed that although the printers office is in Ridgefield Park, the presses are elsewhere and the time has changed. Basically, I withdraw the question.

      Thanks for the response, though.
