I just wanted to check in about a very pleasant afternoon that my wife and I had while visiting my mom over Christmas. We had some down time so we went for a walk up one side of Main and down the other. First, I must mention, the SR has been going through a generation of decline, but now has a lot of new growth with new immigration (Sorry GW). A new Brazilian grill is about to open and I can't wait to try it on our next visit. There is a Chinese take out that has been there forever and a new Chinese restaurant as well, a Thai restaurant and great little Mexican cafe w/ great tacos, an Egyptian run lunch shop, with a 4 buck gyro, and a separate Egyptian grocery, a Latin supermarket , a great Portuguese bakery. The coup de gras, however are 2 Polish delis and a polish restaurant. One is a goodly sized butcher shop w/ tons of sausages, canned goods, herring and baked goods. The other, across the street, is a smaller version, but has a small alcove, and serves Polish snacks. A new Polish restaurant (BYOB) rounds out the Polanic trio. Note: there is another Polish deli over the bridge on Jerneee Mill Rd in Sayrveille and the Royal Bakery on Washington Rd. Finally, a Polish restaurant on Whitehead Ave. in SR was highly recommended to us. Next time.
From the icy far north, enjoy!
