I'm meeting a friend tomorrow and he's coming down from NY (up past Harriman and the outlets)...I am clueless about decent bars in the uppermost part of the state...would like more than
frozen chicken wing options but it would also nice to be able to hear one another talk (pre-game).
Fwiw, in terms of food/atmosphere for these situations, I usually go to places like Egans in Montclair or Bistro 55 in Rochelle Park. If Shannon Rose was open in Ramsey, that would likely be my choice, but their site says 1/16. The Valley Pub in Oakland appears to be closed--site and phone are down.
Any/all ideas welcomed. THANKS!
