Lunch between Hawthorne / Oakland, NJ

Annie M | Mar 22, 2005 11:07 AM

My husband and I spend every Friday in New Jersey visiting with our daughter and her two boys (3 and 4 yrs old). The routine is: swim lessons in Hawthorne, NJ and then lunch. Our daughter lives in Oakland, NJ.

The places we choose are: kid friendly and conveniently located to either/both town and not chains, if we can help it.

We've eaten at the Mason Jar, the Porchlight Grill, Andy's Lunch, Fireside, various diners.

We'd like a nice meal, a pleasant experience and to acquaint our boys with eating out, behaving properly and enjoying good food.

Any good ideas? (Thanks)
