Recent Visits to Restaurants Millburn/Short Hills – Union - Maplewood – South Orange
Over the past few months have had the opportunity to try several places in this area. Had some time to document my visits. While it is not technically North Jersey, it is North Central New Jersey. I am in this area about once a week for business, always looking for new places to try, mostly lunch.
Enchante Artisan Cuisine Cafe
Stopped in here about 2 weeks ago.
They have a lovely cheese case, daily quiches, specials, and sandwiches.
Very kind and helpful people.
Apricot and Gruyere Quiche – very good
Pear crumb cake – good but sweet
There are a few tables inside and out. Nothing fancy. Will return!
This place is located on Main Street, parking is difficult.
Looks like it is a Creperie. Could not find any info or a website, maybe I spelled it wrong?
Will return and check it out.
Ling Ling Millburn
My lunch was less than ok, service was slow, and this Chinese restaurant is nothing like Ling Ling Riverwalk in Basking Ridge, which is very good.
Salmon Sushi – Good
Queen Roll – Spicy Tuna – Spicy Salmon – Spicy Yellowtail Avocado with Roe – Good
Favorite part of this meal was the Chrysanthemum Tea.
Cozy restaurant, good sushi, kind helpful staff.
Whole Foods - Osteria
This is a newer whole foods store; they closed the one in Millburn.
Enjoyed a huge Caesar Salad – Very Good!
Restaurant is connected to the food store – not a quiet restaurant - but happy.
Sona Classic Indian Cuisine
6 1/2 Highland Pl Across the street from Cent’Anni
Maplewood, NJ 07040
This restaurant is nestled back off the road, serves a wonderful lunch buffet for 11.99. They usually do 2-3 vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Always Yummy!
Arturo’s Brick Oven Pizza
Stopped into this place not too long ago.
The gentlemen here were super kind and accommodating.
Prosuitto and Spinach Personal Pie – Good
Soup of the day – Sausage and broccoli rabe - Good
Will have to return, and try another pizza, while it was good, from all the rave reviews I was expecting more, maybe I did not order the right things.
Have been here many times. Very good sushi!
They also have two more locations, Livingston and Millburn.
Bonte Waffeleria and Café
This place may be a chain but they make a yummy Belgium waffle.
Parking is not easy here by the train station and you may want to take a buddy with you.
Eden Market is across the street, which has lots of great gourmet food.
This is close to the Turtle Back Zoo and Park, picnic places all over.
63 Academy Street
South Orange NJ
Located around the corner from the Town Hall Deli.
It is a small restaurant that has been there for a long time Excellent sushi.
It gets crowded; sometimes I don’t stop because it is so packed.
Any other must try suggestions in this area are appreciated.
