Quality Dining Morristown Area

I'm looking for a place to have dinner. What are the best places in the Morristown Area and thereabouts. Willing to travel upwards of 20 minutes from Mendham

      I had dinner last night at Copeland and,I have to say, I was very impressed. Everything we had was perfectly prepared and served. Service was attentive without being fawning, there is enough room between tables for privacy, the room is handsome and not too loud, even with a bar and TV at the far end. I have been a few other times and there was always something "off". It sure seems like they have hit their stride now.

        We liked Equus in Bernardsville. Il Mondo Vecchio in Madison, good food , but loud. In Morristown, the Grand Cafe is good, but it is stuffy and stuck in the 80s, but classy.

        Been to Copeland for lunch and it is good, but we found the service lacking . Have only heard good reports from others.

        I've worked in Morristown for 25 years and I find the restaurant scene underwhelming, which is surprising due to the upscale demographic.

        I've always loved the Pluckemin Inn.
        Another good one in downtown Morristown is Origin Thai - not as fancy as the others, but great Thai-French fusion.

          The Bernards Inn has really stepped it up lately,

          Dining there on Wednesday Corey sent us out a serving of Iberian Pork - not cured jamon iberico, but an actually pork loin from these extraordinary rare animals, it had the most interesting texture, a flavor that tended towards acorns/oak and a little stripe of fat that just melted into the meat on our tongues. It was really extraordinary.

          While all of the restaurants mentioned in the previous posts are exceptional, all of them go through cycles and have up and down moments...it may just be us but based on our last three trips there The B Inn seems to be on an impressive high right now

            Copland at the Governor Morris Hotel still gets it done...a decent bar to kick things off too.

              it's actually Copeland, the owners wanted to name it after composer Aaron Copland, but then realized that the name could be misconstrued as "Copland" as in the movie with Sylvester Stallone, so they changed the spelling of the composer's name.

              If I had to pick one restaurant in or near Morristown for dinner, it would be Resto in Madison. You could also try Rob's Bistro, right next door to Resto (same owners) but it's probably more suitable for lunch. One of my favorite places, also in Madison, is the Garlic Rose. Not as upscale as Resto or some of the other places mentioned but the food is wonderful.




              Btw, if you live near Mendham, are there any decent restaurants left in Mendham or Chester? What's the Black Horse Tavern like these days?
