Just discovering that this small Bergen Cty town is filled with great, reasonable eating options. I haven't tried all that the town offers but love the seafood place- Seafood Gourmet, peruvian chicken- Uncle Paulies and the maywood market have been chowhound worthy on my initial visits. I'm eating my way up and down the block.
Will be trying out the bakery, pizza place and coffee shop soon.
Anybody have specific must order menu items from any of these or other restaurants/stores in the area? Is it just my imagination or is this town particularity well endowed?
Add to it that Whole Foods is a really short distance away - great wine selection in that particular store - and this is a winning locale.

      Thanks. I'll check it out and report back.

    2. I've enjoyed Bobby's Burger Palace in nearby Bergen Mall for a terrific burger courtesy of Bobby Flay. Don't forget th sweet potato fries and the outstanding milk shakes. Enjoy!

      1. Forget about overpriced Whole Foods-- Head up Rte 17 another 2 miles to Fairway! Lower prices and higher quality than WF, and a much bigger selection!

        For wine, go east on Rte 4 to Total Wine, again, a bigger selection with much lower prices than WF.

          Fairway is the best supermarket in NJ...hands down...great cheese, exotic produce, very good quality meats, and a gourmet section with truffles, foi gras (sorry for spelling) and AWESOME olives

        2. Great coffees and cheeses in Fairway...I couldn't agree more.

          1. I moved to maywood recently and have been trying various food places nearby. If you want pizza avoid the downtown pizza shops (Mario's is ok for food). Also, the bakery is not so great. The crumb cake I recently bought was stale. The peruvian chicken place is very good though!
