July 4th Restaurant musings - new BYOB in Rumson; nightmare in west end

Busy weekend and everything seemed to be packed all weekend; here were our highs and lows:

High:

Georgina in Rumson; those looking for Frank from Angelica's will find him here at this new BYOB in Rumson, location is the former Barn on Ave of Two Rives; went Friday night with party of 8; placed was jammed, a real scene with table hopping and everyone seeming to know each other, but warm and friendly as only Frank can make a place.... Lamb Chops were the hit of the night, service remarkably great for a holiday weekend; HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Cinco De Mayo in West End; thank the poster here who turned us on to this new mexican with an outdoor patio on Brighton; service was great, packed with nice weather on Saturday but everyone hustled; food was ok, menu extensive, plenty of good beers and magarita's; free app and desert was a welcome treat

OK:

Sunday night dinner at Doris & Ed's, way overcrowded and they did not handle the crowds well, barmen were good at keeping spirits up, service wicked slow; food remarkably good - black bass was tremendous!

Disaster:

Tre Amici, this place is the roller coaster place on the shore, sometimes an over the top great meal, but wow sometimes it is just dreadful; unfortunately the latter this weekend

Lows:
