I thought I'd add some comments on the exchanges over this a few days ago.
As to places to eat, I'd have to agree with Alan regarding Vineland. You might wish to try Hillebrand though. The chef is great and also has quite a reputation in the industry as a good teacher. Many people fight to get in there because of this and, as a result, you get to experience food coming from a very tight and consistent kitchen. In NOTL, the Prince of Wales hotel has a new chef, Paul Boehmer, a very talented fellow.
In addition to Lenko, Malivoire and 30 Bench, do not miss 13th Street as well though, at this time of year, they will have little of the stuff for which they are justly famous.
