special guests from out of town. adventurous eaters. personally do not want to be rushed with dinner.

    Can we assume these places are in NJ?

        Was just wondering, there's an Elements in Sea Bright but no peacock inn nearby...

        elements, chef table for sure. peacock inn is a great dining experience as well, but is more refined & traditional. elements more advant guarde.

        let us know how you like Elements. we've been to both, agree elements is more avant garde, peacock is more traditional. Both very good.

          spell check let me down above ... elements is more avant-garde (not advant guarde)!

          we're going again next week as well. looking forward to it.

            had the tasting menu. most of the courses spectacular. looking fwd to going back. thrilled that there is a great restaurant in the princeton area now. only complaint. very squished banquette seating.
