Seeking upscale dinner with great food in Northern NJ

nsxtasy | Apr 21, 2007 09:44 AM

I'm an out-of-town visitor (and frequent Chowhound contributor in my hometown forum) seeking a recommendation for one night, one dinner next month. I'd like to find a restaurant, anywhere in northern Jersey. Price does not matter, although I'd prefer a reasonably nice place (i.e. not hole-in-the-wall). What I am really looking for is excellent food, not just good but GREAT - the kind of place where every bite of every dish is to die for. I generally prefer what some might call contemporary cuisine, such as grilled fish with a nice sauce. NOT a steakhouse and NOT conventional Italian. Last year I ate at Fascino in Montclair, which I liked a lot, but would like to try a place I've never been, rather than a repeat visit. Anywhere in northern NJ is fine; it does not have to be in or near Essex County.

I'm strongly considering Blu in Montclair, Chakra in Paramus, Silver Oak Bistro in Ridgewood, or maybe one of the locations of South City Grill. (I've searched and found mixed reviews on the last three, none on Blu). I would welcome comments on these as well as any additional suggestions. Thanks in advance.
