Lunch in Montclair

  • e

I am looking for a fun, casual place to have lunch in Montclair. Not "fine dining" or too "upscale -- more casual. I was thinking about Cuban Pete's, but we've done that recently so I'd like to find something else, something new, that I haven't tried before.

Any ideas? Thank you very much in advance.

    How do we know what you've tried, other than Cuban Pete's?

      Doesn't matter...just recommend some fun, casual, good food places. If I've been, who knows, maybe it will inspire me and create a crazing. That can be common. Thanks.

    2. The $15.00 three course prix fixe lunch at Escape is not only mispriced, it is delicious.

          1. We were at Costanera (Peruvian food) for dinner recently and I found it quite good. Just looked at their lunch menu and it seems reasonable. The place seemed pretty casual to me.
