NJ Chows - Standbys vs. the List

bgut1 | Mar 23, 2007 04:05 PM

Having young children, I don't get the opportunity to go out for dinner as often as I would like. So when the DW advises we have a babysitter, I debate between going to the "tried and true" restaurant or taking a chance on one of the places on my wanting to try list. Lately I've been kind of wimpy and have chosen my usual old haunts as I'd rather not be disappointed. Are many of you more adventurous or are just as comfortable with your old standby? What 3 restaurants would you classify as your standbys and what 3 are on your must try list? Here are mine:
Standbys: 1. Dish (my casual place); 2. Blu (my fancy but not over the top place), 3. Nicholas (my over the top place)
Want to try: 1. Drew's Bayshore Bistro, 2. Mahogany Grill, 3. Fascino.
