North Jersey: best place to eat outside?

  • 6

Now that it's getting warmer out, what are some great restaurants with an outdoor patio?

One suggestion:

  1. I had enjoyed the outside dining at Sushi Lounge in Totowa a few times last summer. I look forward to going back now that it is warm again.

          "Great restaurants" followed by "Baumgart's" is a corruption of the word "great". Super-mediocre is more fitting.

          Most outdoor seating in Bergen is in front of the restaurant on a noisy street. For the ultimate in outdoor dining serenity, cross the river to Half Moon in Dobbs Ferry...

        2. Kevin's Thyme in Ho-Ho-Kus. Only open a few nights a week, though.

          1. Not sure where in North Jersey you are looking - - Hunterdon County has many wonderful outdoor dining spots - - too many to mention here but a few are:

            Perryville Inn, in Union Township, Hunterdon County. The food is excellent and the outdoor dining less formal than inside the restaurant. However, I don't know whether they are set up outside this early in the season.

            The Stockton Inn has a very nice outside garden dining area, and sometimes has good entertainment. The food is better at Perryville Inn though.

            In Clinton, there was the Old River House with outside tables on a patio near the "waterfall". The Old River House closed but I recall someone (Ambrose?) posting on another thread that Nino's, a decent Italian Restaurant in Clinton, was taking over the location.

            Finally, Circa in High Bridge usually has four or five tables outside, on a sort of terrace in front of the building. Food and atmosphere are very good at Circa, there's usually a nice level of activity in the restaurant and bar area, and occassionally live music. Note, however, that unlike the other places mentioned, these tables face the street. They're a good spot to watch the goings-on in town, but less bucolic than the other places mentioned.
