We found a wonderful and unexpected restaurant in the
town of Atlantic Highlands- north Jersey shore, real
near Sandy Hook beaches. It is called Bistro Zeeto;
Zeet (the chef) and Martha, his wife (and manager/
maitress d') run a totally eclectic, fun bistro -
reasonably priced and great food. He previously co-
owned and cooked at Sugar Reef in Manahattan- and their
food is French-Creole overtones while being just great
bistro food, and reasonable too. And it's BYOB. He is
an artist and we loved the location, an old candy store
that they had totally redone with a great mosaic bar
and lots of antiques. They serve food like artists
too, colorful and combining lots of great flavors.
Excellent creme brulee for dessert too. I can't wait
to go back....
