NEW CHOICES FOR
;;; ;;; ;;;;;;;;;; team has done
it again! Our food reporters and critics
have eaten their way across the state
and come back with the definitive list
of New Jersey’s ;; Best New Restaurants. Deputy editor/dining editor Eric
Levin, who coordinated the team’s
e;orts, tells us the establishments on
this year’s list are remarkable for the
wide range of styles they o;er to New
Jersey food lovers.
Indeed, the list includes Thai, Italian, Japanese and Jamaican cuisines; German-style wursts; all kinds
of New American; and even fish and
chips. Barbecue is well represented,
with two Southern-style restaurants
and one that is Korean inflected. We
also see new creativity with Mexican
food and drink, and one new place
that gives a sophisticated twist to the
tiki-bar experience. Readers with
more traditional tastes will be excited
by two new steak houses and the return of classic fine dining at one venerable location.
We hope you’ll use our list as your
guide to great dining throughout ;;;;.
;;;;;;;; ;; ;;;;; dining, no indi-
vidual has shared more of her New
Jersey culinary experiences with our
readers than our Table Hopping With
Rosie blogger, Rosie Saferstein. Alas,
Rosie informed us in December that
she was stepping down from what she
called “the best job in the world.”
Rosie approached NJM with the
idea for a regular column about New
Jersey dining some ;; years ago.
Thank goodness we recognized her
passion for the subject. Since her first
post on January ;;, ;;;;, Rosie has
entertained and informed us with inside news of the state’s dining scene
and her own indispensable reports
on what she and her husband, Lowell,
have been eating.
I’m pleased that Table Hopping will
continue under Andrea Clurfeld (see
page ;)—and that Rosie will continue
as an occasional contributor.
