Now that Memorial Day is almost here, my husband & I were discussing the down-the-shore crowds on the weekends. So, we will probably stay away from Brandl, Poached Pear, and Brando's until Sept. We need more dinner options in our area besides Sam Vera, Jimmy's, Ganga & the occasional trip to Bonefish Grill. We love Via 45 but it takes weeks to get a Sat night reservation and Monticello is OK. I can't seem to get into Angelica's but will keep trying :) Any suggestions for good Italian or seafood in the Monmouth County area? Thanks Chowhounders!
