Lighthouse resturant in weehawken Veal

geointl | Dec 6, 200705:41 PM     21

Many years ago I used to make my weekly pilgrimage from Springfield to the Lighthouse restaurant in Weehawken NJ. I can not put into words why, but there was something about the place that really attracted me. The restaurant closed many years ago, much to my chagrin and ever since I have been looking for a place that makes Veal Parmesan that taste similar to the one I loved. I have tried almost everything at home to recreate this magical dish, but my attempts have been unsuccessful. I have tried any number of combinations of types of veal, breading, oil, cheese and have yet to come close to what I remember.

I am still searching the multitude of Italian resturants that have sprung up in the NJ area like weeds, in the hope of one day finding one that can come close to the Lighthouse taste.

If anyone used to go to the Lighthouse and knows of a place that makes it the same way, please let me know, I will be forever in your debit.

For those of you who have never been to the Lighthouse restaurant but know of a place in NJ or NY that makes a good Veal Parm, your opinions would be greatly appreciated.
