NJ’S BEST DINING:
OUR LIST GROWS
editors tend to cut stories; they
don’t like to make things longer. So
you can imagine Eric Levin’s dismay
when he pondered this year’s preliminary list of the state’s best restaurants. Levin, our deputy editor and
dining editor, was in the process of
compiling the state’s most anticipated annual scorecard of fine dining.
His preliminary list totaled more
than 30 restaurants, each in its own
way deserving our recognition. But
since Levin created the Top 25 in
2007, he has held to that number.
Each year, Levin has struggled to
winnow the list down to the desired
25; this year it was tougher than ever.
After much hand-wringing, the decision was made: Expand to a Top 30.
The expansion, as Levin explains,
“reflects the dynamism of Jersey’s restaurant scene. It keeps getting more adventurous, varied and rewarding.”
it’s not easy to land an interview
with the leader of the Newark Archdiocese, the ninth largest community of
Catholics in America. But it’s certainly
worth the effort. Our correspondent
Tammy La Gorce (photo below) interviewed Cardinal Joseph Tobin, the recently appointed archbishop of Newark, about an array of topics ranging
from immigration to gay rights to the
closures of Jersey Catholic schools.
Tobin revealed himself to be a man of
compassion, insight, humor and grit—
a perfect mix for the Detroit native to
bring to New Jersey. The complete
interview starts on page 40.
