Looking for Something Different in Union County NJ

sivyaleah | Nov 28, 2006 03:11 PM

I feel like we've been everywhere in Union County. Obviously, we haven't. My husband's birthday is this weekend and I'm looking to take him someplace new. Doesn't have to be upscale, infact, I'd prefer that we don't make a big deal out of it since the next day we have to be at a family gathering which will be on the fancy side.

We would consider going out of the County, if it isn't too far out.

We eat everything, except he doesn't eat seafood - so please don't suggest sushi :-) We've also eaten at every single restaurant in Westfield many times over, so all of them are out. All ethnic foods are a possibily other than japanese for the aforementioned reason.

Oh and no Italian - that's the party the next day :-)

I guess we're hoping for some hidden gem. Someplace we've passed by and forgotten about or didn't notice was there before. Like the other night when we suddenly remembered there was a Turkish restaurant in Summit we'd never tried. Can't remember the name now, but we had a very nice mezze, with stuffed grape leaves flavored like none we'd every had before.

Sorry for rambling, but you all know how it is when you're looking for something new, in a place you've lived for a long time. Challenging is the word which comes to mind.
