Hi - live in NYC and head through NJ every Friday night on way to weekend home in upstate NY. WE usually take the Lincoln tunnel, head over to RT 17 and take that all the way up to NYS Thruway - so can anyone offer some interesting dining suggestions along Rt 17 through northern NJ?
South City Grill looks interesting, anyone recommend?
Have tried all the diners, and chains (Chili's, Macaroni Grill, etc, YUK) Popeye's and Boston Market win out over those.
Mason Jar is Mahwah was BIG disappointment. BBQ pork just ok - but sides, deserts, everything else, were HORRIBLE (they should be embarrassed the Mac and cheese and corn bread were SO bad).
We're gonna hit Fink's Funky soon. and I've seen a lot of talk regarding Minado - seems worth trying.
We would VERY MUCH appreciate any new ideas along this route... thanks in advance!
and btw - born and raised in NYC and I LOVE NEW JERSEY. what an excellent state (and a great "foodie" state, Pete and Elda's and Delicious Orchards are favorites). spent all my childhood summers at the Jersey shore. As kids we never understood why comedians and such would dump on NJ - we always thought of it as our VACATION LAND :-)
