Looking for good restaurant in Redbank NJ

grumpyfoodie Jan 24, 2011 09:54 AM

I will be attending an event in Redbank NJ and I'm looking for a nice place to have dinner. I will also be staying over night and would like to know of a good place for breakfast. Dinner can be upscale, ethnic, hole in the wall as long as food is good. Thanks.

    For breakfast, the In Between Cafe is generally considered the place to go if you are right in Red Bank. As for dinner, there are plenty to pick from. Nicholas is one of the top in the state (many would say THE top). But there are excellent choices in all cuisines, atmospheres, and price range. Search on Red Bank and you'll find dozens of threads.

      Fyi, Nicholas was recently named one of the top 40 restaurants in the U.S. by the Gayot Restaurant guide.

      Dish on White Street is excellent. Note, if this is a large event (such as at the Count Basie) it would be smart to make a reservation as it is within easy walking distance and others will have the same idea. For breakfast I am easy and would just hit up the Broadway Diner on Monmouth St.

          North of the Border

          Best breakfast is at The Inbetween

              For breakfast take a ride down Rumson Road to Sea Bright and have some breakfast at Steve's luncheonette. He has the best heuvos rancheros and awesome fresh home fries

                    Didn't have a good experience @ Downtown, aklein. Sorry to hear that. I've never been disappointed by the bar scene, lunch sushi or dinner entree. As for breakfast in RB, I like the eggs @ Bdwy Diner but I rarely eat there and couldn't vouch for RB breakfasts of late. Only thing about Dish that disappoints is tight seating. Eurasian Eatery has changed over the last few years; hit or miss (imho).

                    I'd recommend Bienvenue on West Front Street. Its a small, cozy French restaurant with absolutely wonderful food. Chef Marc hails from Burgogne, and he is turning out wonderful versions of the classics. His business partner Alan runs the front of house with care and élan. I'll be dining there Saturday night. I'm having trouble deciding between the Coq au Vin and the Cassoulet!

                    You won't be disappointed.

                      Bernie - This is interesting news about Bienvenue as the food at the previous incarnation was quite poor (in my one and only visit a year or so back).

                      I would like to thank everyone for their suggestions. Chose Dish and Innbetween and enjoyed both. I will be making a return trip to Red Bank. Thanks again.
