I am constantly amazed at how people just get in their cars and drive anywhere for a (hopefully) good meal. Distance and cost is not an issue. While reading ppl's comments I see they travel around NYC down to Red Bank then further to LBI then over to Princeton then up to East Hanover then back to Fair Haven to eat a various places. Some of you must travel for an hour or more to eat with reservation made days or weeks ago. I can never plan that far ahead and after 15 minutes driving I start gnawing on the steering wheel to ease the hunger pains. Also, my diminutive wallet forces me to (literally) walk away from the superior and interesting places.
Someone drops the name of an obscure restaurant in a "small strip mall" and 10 ppl not only know who, what, where but have dined there RECENTLY and can give a mini review of their experience. My memory fails me of last night's dinner.
Many of you accomplish what I can only dream about. So, please, continue posting your reviews, recommendations, questions and everday thoughts so we all can freely "share" your entrees ... despite what the printed menu says.
