2010 Must Try List

My top three for the year are:
Lorena's in Maplewood
Trinity in Keyport
Uproot in Warren
I'm sure there's more but that's all I have for now.
Oh I hope elements is on most of your lists since only a handful of chowhounders have been there.
If you haven't given the Belford Bistro a try, consider adding this wonderful restaurant to your 2010 list. Also, Niko's Trapezi A Greek Taverna in Long Branch has become a week day lunch favorite for my husband and I when he's home. Evening/weekend dining traffic has increased for both of these (fairly new) establishments for good reason. And, both have been highlighted on this board to extensive and most favorable review.

re: AC Captain
Blu is in Montclair... while it has earned some rave reviews, others use the word "overrated." However, I've spoken directly to some people who have been and heard nothing but raves about the food. Either way, I'm intrigued.
BTW, Blu also was named as a top restaurant by NJ Monthly, which I know doesn't always mean all that much.
