So, at least for us, 2013 was a lousy year for eating out at the Shore. Our investment in restaurant food was roughly equivalent to that of JP Morgan Chase in WaMu. I think we just settled the last dispute with the Feds and it almost exhausted the reserve.
Nonetheless, I did have a few shining palate moments from the plates placed in front of me at local eateries. For example, the crab beignets and the gnudi at Surv. have us heading back for more tastes in a couple weeks. The pizzas at Mossuto's and Porta are consistently worth stopping in for. Mrs. Z had a halibut special at The Shipwreck that was dish licking good. And, the corned beef hash at Toast in Asbury will always come to mind when I am more hungover than usual.
So, I was wondering, as we start Twenty-fourteen, what did you have last year in the area that you wanna head back for? What deliciousness would you divulge? What was your "Wrecking Ball"? Your "Roar"? What would be your MTV awards for the Best of 2013? Best beer? Best app? Best sandwich?* Best whatever-the-f*ck-you-can-think of?
*By the way, I still want to get to that place in Long Branch for the Meatball Sub.
