Vivere Ristorante ~ Spring Lake, NJ

JerzeyShore | May 31, 2008 05:10 AM

This establishment, located in the Grand Victorian Hotel in Spring Lake, has been open for a little over six months. Large open and airy with a deck that overlooks the ocean from across the street on Ocean Avenue right next to the Breakers Hotel. A very relaxing place for a nice meal at the Jersey shore.

Claudett Herring the Executive Chef has been established for many years in the central Jersey area. We first met her in an italian restaurant in East Brunswick about 20 years ago. She is an excellent cook and a genuinely nice person. Her trademark is keeping things simple and only using the freshest in season ingredients. The menu selections are
therefore limited and change frequently.

We shared a house salad and it was basic and just average. But the main courses of shrimp scampi over penne and red snapper sauteed in butter olives and capers were both excellent. The deserts are made in house and we shared a carrot cake that was delicious
and unusual in that you could see the carrot and taste its texture. The wait staff were friendly and experienced.

Total cost of the meal before tip was $71. They are a BYOB that is open for brunch and dinner and they will accept reservations for two. 1505 Ocean Avenue ... 732-449-5327...
