    If you like German food there is the Black Forest Inn.

      Black Forest Inn is a classic old school German/Continental restaurant well worth a visit. I have never been, but good friends have spoken highly of a place called "Salt" also in Stanhope.

        A third possibility, right in Stanhope, is Bell's Mansion:


        You ask for recommended spots "in the area". How big an area are you willing to consider?

          We went to Bell's, good pick. Liked the atmosphere and food. Thanks!

          BLACK FOREST, BELL'S MANSION, and SALT are all worthwhile stops in Stanhope. Been to all of them a number of times, and always enjoyed. BELL's is especially good these days, being under new ownership for the last few years. Nice folks and good food. SALT bills itself as a gastropub, and has a decent and changing selection of beers along with pretty good food, and on some nights, musical entertainment.

            I agree with the Salt recommendation. Also if you want to drive 3 miles to Mt. Arlington, Blossom on Howard Blvd. in Mt. Arlington serves up great Asian fusion.
