We have lots of friends in NYC or North Jersey that we meet "half way" for lunch or dinner.
Today we discovered a winner in New Brunswick for lunch--La Fontana, directly across from the NB train station.
A very upscale place, it offers a $12.95 lunch special that was a winner. Great soups or salads, very wide choice of entrees, coffee. My salmon entree was lovely; soup of white beans and pasta was the real deal. Parking garage next door.
Desserts not worth the $12 tab, but fun nevertheless.
