      I don't know how far you're willing to go, but this thread covered a ton of eats in the edison/new brunswick area, which is pretty close to where you will be:

        Going upscale, The Pluckemin Inn is excellent. If you're dining solo, their tavern room & menu is a great place for a well prepared cocktail and great food.

          The Chimney Rock in has good food and Pizza and is like a pub kind of atmosphere.

          Manville BBQ is a little take out joint, but has awesome food. It's Uraguian BBQ, similar to Portuguese.

          Sophie's Bistro, Somerset. One of the best places to dine at in this area.

          I know you didn't go on CH to get recs for Chains!

            Thank you Menton. I cringed when I saw the chain recs. I mean, aren't they everywhere? Like your Sophie's recommendation as well as Gastro's Origin and Shumi. They are the very very best in the immediate Bridgewater/Somerset area (being 10 minutes of less for the most part).

            Then there's New Brunswick and the wonderful Italian that is Du Marie, or the New American, Stage Left, etc.
