  1. Zoe, in Little Silver, is a good BYOB. I also am a fan of Mr. Shrimp in Belmar, a seafood BYOB. Lil Masters Grille in Fair Haven is also good. Yumi in Sea Bright has delicious sushi and japanese food and is also byob.

    Hope that helps!

    1. Since "Central NJ" takes up a lot of territory, it would be helpful to have more specific geograpical parameters. That said...

      Belford Bistro is an excellent BYO. Delicious contemporary American cuisine. Friendly, efficient service. Pleasant ambiance.

        "Central NJ" always surprises me as an expression in general.

        Based on 'Brat's previous posts, I'm guessing she lives in North Brunswick, which is the one that is south of New Brunswick (confusing).

      2. The following thread is 2+ years old, and a few of the restaurants mentioned have gone, but it should give you lots of ideas:

        In my neck of the woods, I would pick the Blue Bottle Cafe in Hopewell as the best non-Italian BYO restaurant. Lots of very positive comments on this board about the Blue Bottle.
