Ridgewood's best eateries
I love going to ridgewood for their byobs and variety of restaurants. Problem is most of their myriad of places to eat are average at best. There are three restaurants that I crave on a frequent basis and I believe are gems in northern nj. My top three are as follows. A Mano for their spot-on authentic neopolitan style pizzas, Brick Lane for their clean fresh take on indian food and Latour for an old school French classic dishes.
Also Sook is a phenomenal place, though not an official restaurant, for great croissants, brioche, and crepes.
I have yet to try village green but would like to hear what your opinions may be on this towns' offerings.
Yes, there are some excellent places in Ridgewood -- a real melting pot for restaurants, and a nice town.
Latour is very popular and has a lot of fans. Very good food. In my opinion, the most consistent -- and highest level -- restaurant in Ridgewood. I've always had very, very good food and excellent experiences there.
Park West has gotten popular and I've enjoyed several good meals there. Some people complain that it's expensive, but to me that's a relative term. I also like Masago very much. Small, out of the way, off the beaten' path BYO Japanese restaurant. Excellent sushi.
Sook is excellent -- agreed. Very popular with the locals, and out of towners, like me, LOL.
