Any suggestions for some BYOs off the Garden State Parkway….around 135-130? We've tried BYOs in Westfield, but haven't been successful with them.

    Well, this is 137 (I think) in Kenilworth. Le Rendezvous! So good and delish! Philipe the owner is very accomodating and welcoming. Cozy, romantic BYOB.

      Thanks, Angelina. This won't work for the couple we're meeting as they don't care for French. But, my husband and I will be definitely trying this place! Sounds wonderful!
      I've posted a new post, being more specific...Italian and BYO.
      Thanks again!

        Emma's in Cranford though it can get loud during Dinner especially on weekend nights. Good food and good pizza.

          No problem! Trust me...you will love it!

          Anyway, for Italian I like Loucas in Metuchen. Right up Rt. 27 after the parkway.



          If I think of more I will post!

            Thanks, Angelina...we just went there a few weeks ago with the same couple! We love it (although very, very loud). trying to find some new places...keep posting!

        This is a very niche choice in Cranford , also a little noisy, and don't be put off by the name, it's NOT french:

          Wait...not french? I did find that online and looked at their menu. Looks french to me. What makes you say it is not? Don't get me wrong...I saved it as a favorite,but don't think it'll fly with the other couple.

            Tried this twice. once last year and once this Summer. Both times the meals were good.

              I guess everyone's definitions are different. Good luck in your search.

                Your definition is just wrong
                from their site:
                'A Toute Heure literally means “anytime.” And, it was in the “a toute heure” (or daily specials) menus of the bistros of France that we found inspiration for our own. We wanted to create a small, family-run bistro with a locally-sourced, seasonal menu. '

                  Your response is rather emotional so I suppose with the french name, Au Bon Pain becomes a French bakery and the Mazda Miata which was designed to be a better English roadster is in fact not Japanese. As I said, everyones definitions are different, vive la difference!

            I posted on your other thread about Mojave Grill in Westfield. Delish!
