Where to eat in Cranford NJ

Going to the movies in Cranford and want to eat afterwards- simple and good!

    It gets mixed reviews, but Dim Sum II Chinese Restaurant is right next door, locally owned, and I enjoyed several meals there.

    Also try the Cranford Hotel for a nice relaxing cocktail.

        Garlic Rose is one of our favorite places--we go there often, and have never been disappointed.

          Second all of the above - especially Kilkenny - our favorite place to go. And then after you can walk up to the Vanilla Bean Creamery - they make delicious ice cream.

            Some other options - Mizu Sushi (delicious sushi, my favorite in the area), Italian Pantry, and Thai Cranford (right past the movie theater, across from the diner). And I second Vanilla Bean - we're there at least once a week!

            Ha! Was there last night with friends who live in town, and I was commenting on how many good options they have...here are the few I know about for casual dining:

            Kilkenney's Pub
            Emma's Brick Oven Pizza
            Avenue East (some of every kind of Asian food, including sushi, Thai, Malaysian, and more)

              A toute heure is not simple, but it is good.
