If you're wondering where some of The Ryland Inn staff has gone, look no further than Circa in High Bridge. It seems that chef Michael Coury left a few months ago and the place was bought by Joe Sparatta, who worked at the Inn for four years. His wife, also a Ryland Inn alumnus, is in charge of the wait staff and the wine selections.
I went to Circa several times and for the most part enjoyed dining there. The noise level, however, could be intolerable at times so we stopped going on weekends.
