Owner and chef Jim Hayes has just opened his new place, Bistro Soleil, at 173 Mercer Street in Hightstown, NJ, off of Rt 130. And it is indeed a ray of sunshine in this little burg in central NJ, not far from Trenton, Princeton, and New Brunswick.
A group of us trekked from New Brunswick on Saturday night and enjoyed the food and friendly service.
In particular, I enjoyed:
- the calamari
- the fish chowder
- the pork loin entree
- and the delicious chocolate desserts
My wife had the risotto and raved about it.
It's a "bring your own" place. There is seating outside, so plan to you go on a pleasant Summer evening.
