NEWJERSEY MONTHLY February 2014 9
GOING OUT FOR BREAKFAST IS ONE OF
the great affordable luxuries. At home,
we tend to fall into a breakfast routine,
whether it’s scrambling two eggs, pouring milk over cereal or smearing a bagel
with cream cheese. But head out the door
for your morning meal and you open up
a world of possibilities, from mind-bend-ing omelets and benedicts to wondrous
waffles and seductive stacks of pancakes.
These days, breakfast out is more enticing than ever. The same creativity and
farm-to-table ethos that chefs have embraced for dinner have found their way
to breakfast menus across the state. That
means a greater variety of dishes with more
interesting combinations of ingredients.
What’s more, today’s breakfast chefs
have responded to our growing taste for
food that’s not just good, but good for
you. That means more fresh fruit with
breakfast orders, and such encouraging
trends as organic eggs, bacon without all
the chemicals, fresh local vegetables and
more gluten-free options. These days we
also see tastes of other cultures flavoring breakfast menus, from spicy Middle
Eastern harissa to various kinds of salsa.
With so much good food awaiting our
morning appetites, New Jersey Monthly
dispatched a team of reporters to find
the state’s best breakfasts. The result:
A palate-pleasing roundup of 57 places
serving meals worth waking up for.
DURING HER FOUR YEARS as lieutenant governor, Kim Guadagno has kept
the lowest of profiles. And that’s just the
way her boss, Governor Chris Christie,
has wanted it. But with Christie pondering a presidential run in 2016, Guadagno
is in line to be our state’s next chief executive. Guadagno remains reluctant to
give full-length interviews to the media,
but political correspondent David Wald
did get the governor-in-waiting to go on
the record on a number of topics for this
month’s issue. Check out his in-depth
profile, starting on page 26.
