Unique Woodbridge area dinner spot

c

Hi there,

My bridesmaids are hosting my bridal shower at the Skylark Diner in Edison and I'm trying to find a good spot for drinks/food later when the men will join up with us. I like fresh, locally inspired food. I really like craft beer and upscale pub fare, but what I'm truly looking for is simply good food with a decent atmosphere, not cheesy/cliche chain restaurants. Post your favorite locally owned spots, not too pricey please. Anything in the Woodbridge area, probably as far out as New Brunswick. Lay it on me....

    jj bittings in woodbridge has a pretty good selection of home brewed beer and has a pretty nice dining room and bar. Idk about "upscale".. ie, they have cheese fries and wings, but its not like fridays.

        I don't know about their beer selection, but Little Spain Restaurant has excellent Iberian food, decent ambience, a bar and is on Amboy Ave in Woodbridge.

          I think it's on New Brunswick Ave in Fords . Woodbridge is too large an area to be able to pinpoint anything there .

            Old Bay in New Brunswick would also work. They have a good bar scene with a good beer selection and tasty cajun bites.

            Little Spain looks awesome! More like that please! Doesn't have to have good beer, that would just be a bonus!

              I don't know if you've been to the Skylark yet, but I think the guys would like it, too.

              If you want a beer place, the food at JJ Bitting Brewing was pretty good and the guys would love it.

                JJ Bitings has good bar food but I would avoid their entrees !
