I have heard that these restaurants have recently opened in Matawan:
Bistro 34 - Italian http://www.bistro34.com/index.html
Bistro Amerigo - Eclectic/Italian http://www.bistroamerigo.com
La Riviera, 113 Main St. (For those old enough to remember, it's the old Jerry Beyer's location.) - "Fine Italian Cuisine & Lounge" - Website under construction.
D'Lish Restaurant, Corner of Rtes. 34 & 79 (previously occupied by Mulberry St. and before that Peter's Fishery) - Upscale Italian - Website under construction.
Just what we need in this one little town -- four new Italian restaurants!!!!
And piling on... In neighboring Marlboro, another new restaurant: Tanti Baci. Needless to say -- Italian! (As if Marlboro, which has very few restaurants to start with, is wanting for an Italian.)
Has anyone tried any of these?
