Cafe Primavera (Somerset, NJ) - under new management

We've been going to Cafe Primavera for years and tonight we discovered that it is under new management. In addition to being under new management, it is no longer BYOB and alcohol is not being used in the cooking. Pork and veal have also been removed from the menu due to the religious beliefs of the new owner.

That said, the kitchen staff has been retained and the food seemed generally they same, with a few exceptions. I'm sure we'll go back but the change in the BYOB policy is really a disappointment because we absolutely loved pairing the food with wines from our collection.

We also found out that the name is going to be changing soon and dry aged steaks will be added to the menu within the next week or so, once the first round of steaks has completely their aging process. I'm interested in checking this out but again, and not to sound like an alcoholic, the restriction on drinking is a bit of a let down.

Any other experiences since the change?
