Bucks County (or Washington Crossing)
This Friday (Feb7) I'll be road tripping from N NJ down to Bucks County, Washington Crossing (Crossing Vineyards), Lambertville and Princeton. Any great chow spots for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, etc? Ideally healthy/veggie-friendly.
In New Hope (right across from Lambertville) I would recommend two spots.. Harvest, and Sprig and Vine. Caffe Galleria in Lambertville has a nice selection of vegetarian items as well.
The Pass just got a great review in the NY Times (I haven't been yet):
Charcoal in Yardley is maybe the most molecular restaurant in the area. Another place I've never been for some reason, but the menus always look good.
Breakfast: In New Hope there is C'est La Vie. This is a little French bakery recessed from the main street. Great coffee, croissants, etc. if you're feeling a continental breakfast.
Lunch: In New Hope, Sprig & Vine is right up your alley. It is in a trendy/swanky shopping center, but it's the most veg friendly option in the area.
Lunch: In Princeton there is the Whole Earth Cafe. This is the greenest grocer I know. Vegetarianism is almost looked down upon here. It's full-blown vegan. Try the Whole Earth Salad at the sit-down area. Warning. This is a natural-health store first, so not a restaurant.
Lunch/Lite Dinner: In Newtown (in the same vicinity) there is a place called Cafe Con Leche that also doubles as a Vegan restaurant named Green Tea. Tons of great salads and other heartier vegan dishes. Great vegan soups to start. My favorite is the Energy Salad with seared tofu. I like to start with a quinoa-kale or butternut squash-jalapeno soup.
Dinner: Lambertville has Hamilton Grille, which is a little fancier and captures the eclectic spirit of the area very well.
In Lambertville there is El Tule, a Peruvian BYOB restaurant (they also have good Mexican food). Especially if you eat fish, it's great -- awesome ceviche. Anything from the Peruvian menu is good.
You could stop in Frenchtown, NJ and go to Lovin Oven! They always have veggie friendly stuff on their menu. And they are very yummy. Also, the Stockton Market has lots to eat.
