Restaurants near Garden State Plaza?

Hi! I will be meeting a friend at this mall this week, and since I live in Monmouth County, I have no clue where to go to eat, Last time we eat at Varka, which I LOVE, but wanted to try something different. She always lets me pick, because I am so picky!!

Please no chains, Chinese, buffet, diners, Italian (way too many by me!)

We live middle eastern, but I was just in Patterson 2 weeks ago. We both like Greek and pizza!

Thanks for any help! I don't mind traveling a little either! :)

  1. There are a lot of options in the area. Bhoj in Elmwood Park has great Indian food. Rosie's Place in Fair Lawn has great Mediterranean food, as does Chicken Kebab in Glen Rock. A few doors down from Chicken Kebab is the legendary Kosher Nosh Deli.

    There are also tons of restaurants in Hackensack and Ridgewood.

    1. Great seafood place on River Road as soon as you get off Rt. 4 in Fair Lawn...Oceano's.

          We really like Taverna Mykonos. It is a nice place with good food.

      1. A wonderful choice, 5 minutes from GSP, perhaps the best in the area.

        1. Just went to Varka for the first time...excellent. Service was lacking but maybe b/c we were inside.

          Restaurant L maybe?

          1. Where did you wind up at?
