Need restaurant in Union County

  • 8

OK here's the deal.... Future Mother in law is in town for some pre-wedding planning. Want's to go out to dinner Thursday so I figure, OK I'll take her to David Drake in Rahway but I see today he's closed up shop. Then I am like hmmm I always liked A Toute Heure in Cranford.... hey they are on winter break and closed for two weeks. Anyone have a recommendation in line with one of those? May just go into Newark and do Casa Vasca but would prefer to keep it closer to where she is staying.

  1. I've really enjoyed La Griglia in Kenilworth (on the Boulevard). Or perhaps Chez Catherine in Westfield (never been, but it gets talked about a lot on the board). I also like Teresa's in Westfield.

    1. We had an excellent meal at Boulevard Five 72 in Kennilworth recently. The seafood risotto was especially delicious.

      1. Le Rendez-vous in Kenilworth, Verjus in Springfield would fit the bill, too

        1. I'm a fan of Casa Vasca, so would never steer you away from there ... but in Union County, I have been many times to, and like, Ristorante Da Benito (in Union). It can get expensive, but it should impress. I have not been to, but would like to try, Solar do Minho (in Roselle Park).

            I've been to Solar do Minho many times--extensive menu, big impressive room, and good-sized parking lot. I've had better paella elsewhere, but the filet mignon and seafood preps are very good.

              BTW, Solar do Minho has two branches--I have only been to the one in Roselle Park.

          2. Mother's in law love Fiorino in Summit. I've taken two of them there.
