Suggestions for a nice restaurant in Chatham, Madison or Summit

American, Italian food, not Japanese, Thai or Indian. Ideas?

  1. Casual of fancy? Alcoholic beverages license or BYO? Per person budget for food only?

      Midway between fancy and casual. BYO. American, Continental or Italian.

        Rob's Bistro in Madison might work for you. We've only been once, but I enjoyed my fish (sole, I think), and mr. diva had steak frites (I think it was a hanger steak with a shallot demi glace).

          Rob's Bistro would be an excellent choice. I also like the Garlic Rose, just up the street.

            I've got to second (or third) Rob's Bistro. Very well done bistro cooking. Right next door and much more upscale is Resto - also very good, but pricier and harder to get a table. LaFoccacia in Summit is a good Italian BYO, as is Il Mondo Vecchio in Madison.

        2. D'Oro in Chatham...fantastic BYO. You won't regret it.

          1. Huntley Taverne in Summit does a decent job and you'll find everything from good apps/salads to (overpriced, imo) entrees. And a bar with a very good selection!

            1. RGR, you asked for more specificity. Do you have a suggestion?

              1. We booked Rob's Bistro. We will comment after we go.
