  1. Try Fleming's in Edgewater.......they have nice deals at Happy Hour.


    1. Bistro 55 in Rochelle Park.

      Bergen county is filled with dreadful bars.

      55 Route 17 South, Rochelle Park, NJ 07662

          More info, please...? Can't find anything about it online. They don't appear to have a website. How long has it been open? What do you like about it?

          1. re: Curlz

            The lack of info about this place on the internet is simply astounding. Having no web presence speaks to the aspirations of your business. Sounds like a 'skip it' to me. I'd be shocked if it's still in business in a year, unless they have a very huge underground following, which seems unlikely.

        2. I've heard an undercurrent of buzz about a wine bar in Englewood just adjacent to the Bergen PAC Theater-- any word on this place?

            Grand Cru next to Bergen PAC. Another place - Caprizza opened on the other side of the theater and has a dj on the weekends.
            Also suggest the bar at Nisi which has stools, hi tops and couch seating. The bar at the clinton inn in tenafly has a good selection of wines by the glass but can be a little quiet.

              i've been wanting to check out the Clinton Inn...have you gone? any thoughts on food?

              1. re: sixelagogo

                I haven't eaten dinner there since it first opened so any opinion would be outdated. I have ordered the pizza at the bar and some of the other bar foods, which were all good.

          2. Bistro 55 is the old South City Grill on Route 17 south
            Tommy here is the link to the website.
            All it took was a quick google search

              I was referring to Uncorked, not Bistro 55. If you can find info on that place I'll give you 50 cents.

              1. re: tommy

                Uncorked Wine & Lounge
                650 Union Blvd
                Totowa, NJ 07512
                (973) 782-4780

                This is the most info I could find........you can owe me......

            2. Taos in East Rutherford is a nice bar.

              The Porter House Grill in Norwood has a very large Wine List

              I believe Blend in Ridgewood has a nice wine list too but I haven't been there in a while and i don't see the list available online


              The Porter House Grill
              595 Broadway, Norwood, NJ 07648

              1. The Grand Cru/Englewood web site actually looks pretty interesting, and it's a real wine bar, not a bar with wine...

                Anybody been?

                  Bin 14 in Hoboken! What every great wine bar should be... Large selection of wines in 1 or 2 ounce pours, and incredible small plates, eagerly paired by attentive staff

                    Is that a better choice than Grand Cru?
