Exotic Eats in Bergen?
Looking for hip atmospheric ethnic (Asian/Indian/Ecclectic/Middle Eastern) place to dine with a bar and a cool scene - but something with an exotic flair. Any ideas?
Although they are not all in Bergen, they are close, I'd recommend Topaz Thai in Belleville Huong Viet for Korean, in Nutley, If you are into Argintinian food, try La Fusta in North Bergen, If you want Cuban, a friend of mine says El Caney in Bergenfield is good. There is also Levant Grill in Englewood for good Turkish food. I have also heard good things about Brick Lane Curry House in Montclair.
Yes Brick Lane is a chain and the one in
Ridgewood does not have a bar - that is one thing I look for is a place with good cocktails. Funny enough, I entered the Man Vs. Food Phaal Curry Challenge at the Brick Lane Curry House in Ridgewood and I actually finished! lol
Several exotic, but not "hip" at all--- reading your description, hip, atmospheric, bar, cool scene, the wonderful restaurant Axia in Tenafly came to mind. Ticks all those boxes...
Mantra on rt 4 in Paramus has a lovely bar area. Mk Valencia is mostly Italian but also has 2 large bars and it's in ridgefield park, it's also really loud.
