Belmont Tavern -- New Jersey

Pina Benvenuto | Feb 25, 1999 09:36 AM

This "tavern" is located in Belville, New Jersey.
The phone # is 973-759-9609-- No answering machine and the place is closed on Wednesdays(?).
The food is wonderful- down home Italian-American fare .
Cavatelli in ragu-- cooked just right and served in a large bowl, with just the right amount of ragu.
Each person at the table would laddle on his/her plate the amount desidered.
The "vinegar chicken" TO DIE FOR!!!! I have never encountered chicken that was so memorable-- not in Spain, Italy, Turkey or the Deep South.... Juicy, tangy, spicy, and oh, so tender..
I think that is the tavern's "signature dish".

Forget trying to get into RAO's -- for me this is the real thing.
