We're heading to Princeton for a tournament this weekend, and my husband says that he has been unsuccessful in finding good options in and around Princeton in the past. I noticed that most of the Princeton-specific threads are quite old.
First off, we arrive on Thursday evening, and have a dinner reservation at Elements. I had noticed that the chef was on the shortlist for the Beard regional rising chefs award, so I thought that would be a good spot for right before the tournament.
The issue for us is that we are frequently looking for quick meals after matches, and late meals after the end of the day. Often, the last match isn't over until about 10PM, and many spots are not serving by then.
In the middle of the day, we're looking for pizza, or sushi, or burgers or good sandwiches that my son can eat and not have a bomb in his stomach when he goes back for his next match in a couple of hours. Because of our time constraints in the middle of the day, we cannot go to far afield.
At night, we are looking for a good meal for all that isn't going to break the bank, though in desperation we have sometimes opted for expensive steak house meals like a Ruth's Chris, of which I understand there is one in the area.
Thanks in advance for any help or direction you can provide!
