Hello experts, I need some advice for dinner Saturday night

We're two couples that are looking for someplace different for dinner tomorrow night. Anything goes, limit is about $50/pp, would prefer byob and should be within 30 minutes of Scotch Plains (exit 135 GSP). 30 minutes can be 25-30 miles in any direction, just don't feel like crossing the river (Hudson that is). Thanks in advance or your advice, I'm really looking forward to the recommendations.

  1. Try a family owned storefront with excellent Argentinian food about 40 minutes from Scotch Plains. BYOB, great steaks, fish, "house rice", Crabmeat rissotto,, a special, shrimp eiza, under $50 pp

    Churrasco Grill
    137 North Beverwyck Rd
    Lake Hiawatha, New Jersey

    In Bloomfield try byob
    Mes Reves
    407 Broad Street
    Bloomfield, New Jersey

    For more formal dinner slightly higher at $66pp. Be certain to look out at their beautiful garden open during mild weather

    Cafe Matisse
    167 Park Avenue
    Rutherford, New Jersey

      1. We actually ended up going to Viet Ai in Florham Park. Turned out there were eight of us and it was a hoot. Was the food spectacular, no but it was good. Thanks all for your advice and I've written the offerings down for our next excursion. Thanks again.
