Best Restaurants in Somerset County and Surrounding Area
At the beginning of January MGZ had an interesting post for Monmouth County, I think the time is right for a similar one for Somerset County and Surrounding area.
We've now lived here for 3 years, after moving from Monmouth County where we still go back to eat, we have a difficult time in this area. Best close restaurant we've found is
Due Mari in New Brunswick
and of course
Four Seasons in Piscataway
For being one of the 10 wealthiest counties in the U.S., I think that this county is lacking great restaurants. What were your favorites in 2013?
Just a few that I have been to:
Pluckemin Inn, Pluckemin
Bernards Inn, Bernardsville
Osteria Morini, Bernardsville
Da Filippo, Somerville
90 Acres, Peapack
Both of those restaurants are in Middlesex County (and I know you cited 'surrounding area').
Ovations in South Bound Brook was always a favorite of mine. And if you're citing 'surrounding area', I can think of no better than the 'Blue Bottle Cafe' in Hopewell.
A few more...
Sette Cucina Italiana, Bernardsville
Origin Thai, Somerville and Basking Ridge
Shumi, Somerville (outstanding sushi)
Kyma, Somerville (Greek)
Fortune Cookie(s), Bridgewater (Hunan, the real deal)
Mockingbird Cafe, Basking Ridge (good for breakfast/lunch, not so much for dinner)
Sophie's Bistro, Somerset (in the town of)
Silk Road, Warren (Afghan)
Eno Terra, Kingston
Osteria Procaccini, Kingston (pizza)
Rocky Hill Inn, Rocky Hill
The Ryland Inn, just across the county line in Hunterdon County (take $$$)
