And last but not least, the main course: chicken piccata. I love when places can do rustic mashed potatoes instead of pasta. Just makes the dish a lot more hearty. Hats off to Nonna’s for making some of the best Italian food I’ve had in recent memory.
For an Italian restaurant, Nonna’s actually has quite an affordable whiskey list. This pour of Glenfiddich, which I tried there for the first time, was only $9.
The first of three pictures from Nonna’s in Englishtown begins today. As a bread-loving Italian, there is no better way to start off a meal than with a spread like this. Homemade, warm, crusty bread, and a dish with two kinds of olive oil, butter, and tapenade.
I saw the sign going up for a new Asian fusion restaurant coming to my hometown of Hazlet. I thought, “Do we really need another one?” There are several takeout joints in this area, and the one sit-down place which arrived last year was, in my eyes, a bombastic failure. Maybe we should just leave…
Some buildings of the Fort Hancock Historic Site out on Sandy Hook, New Jersey. It may look nice and peaceful, but the temperature was brutally cold. This was a day after the “bomb cyclone” storm hit our area early last month. My friend and I headed down there to shoot some footage for Ghosts on…

Where do you go when you have a craving for quesadillas? Why, the J.J. Bitting Brewing Company, of course! All kidding aside, this was the first time I had eaten here in over two years. When I worked in Perth Amboy once upon a time ago, coworkers and I were here at least once a month….
I just love this picture I took of the Shannon Rose this past December.
I’d probably weight 50 pounds less if I did not have a love for bread. Who in their right mind could look at that and not want to dive in? Esposito’s Pizza and Pasta, Matawan, NJ.
This homemade chili oil at Nemo was just staring into my soul.
