Ursino great new Restaurant

A friend invited me to this new restaurant on Kean U campus. Its called Ursino and its very cool. Peter Turso is the Chef there, I first met him when he was the sous chef at Restaurant david Drake. The space is very modern but the food is farm-to-table and really innovative. I had the Salmon over eggplant with tomato-fennel broth, and started with the Pork Belly with Apple Gastrique. Both were yummy! Anyway, I believe that this may turn out to be one of the best restaurants in North/Central Jersey. I definately recommend. I think they open to the public this week.

    It's somewhat off the beaten track (though about 200 yards from where I work!), so I hope they do OK.

        I read about this restaurant in the Kean University magazine I receive as an alum. It looked very interesting. I have been wondering when it would be open to the public. I think it is a very interesting idea but the need to have more publicity. I believe they are also going to have a catering business for weddings and parties and such. That might be popular with alumni who are planning weddings.
        I'll certainly get there to check it out soon.
