And Speaking of Nonna’s

Yesterday, I posted this review of Brando’s in Asbury Park and mentioned that they are owned by the same people who run Nonna’s in Englishtown. Well, I happened to be at the latter last week with Justin and my mom as we had a very rare Saturday night together. It was here where I had one of the best pork chops I’ve ever had: bone-in and topped with an apple and pancetta demi glaze. It was cooked perfectly and though advertised as 14 ounces, it certainly seemed like more. The bone was tiny, so this slab was all meat. But still, it was that sauce and its components that elevated this dish to stardom. I highly recommend ordering this if you go to Nonna’s anytime soon (keep in mind, they do change their menu a few times a year). Served with broccoli rabe and mashed potatoes.
