Alright Chowhound Gang,
We certainly do not get out to eat like we use to before the little ones came along. My wife's birthday is sunday and instead of going to NY or Newark area we will stay local and go for lunch or early dinner. We like all types particularly partial to portuguese and different ethnic foods. Not necessarily Italian. We have been to Pearl of Lisbon in the past and enjoy the food there. We also like Bistro Ole but have not been there in a few years. The revitalization of Asbury is actually very exciting to me since we were former patrons of such places as Fast Lanes and Stone Pony for shows in our youth. I have been to Watermark and some of the new establishments for drinks with family visting from overseas but have not sampled too many of the new restaurants. I am open to Langosta Lounge but am confused by which place to choose. Pear of Lisbon, Bistro Ole, Langosta Lounge or other.?
I could certainly use some input from all of you. Thanks everyone!
