2nd Floor Restaurant- Long Branch
We had a very nice meal there on Friday night. The chicken liver mousse app was excellent, and the burrata was very good (and large). We spotted a crab cake at the table next to us and wished we had given it a try since it looked excellent. For entrees we had the short ribs over a lobster and pea risotto, which was good and matched better than expected and the pork chop, which was very good and cooked perfectly next to a bacon and brussel sprout hash. All in all, a solid restaurant and worth dining at. We liked the décor and the service. We'll be back for sure.
2nd Floor is owned by the same people who own Mix Lounge on the "first floor". We have been several times and have thoroughly enjoyed the meals. Favorites have included the octopus and chorizo appetizer (it rivals the excellent dish at Porta) as well as the fried apple pie dessert. Enjoy.
