A half-pitcher of Blue Moon at Brothers’ Pizza in Red Bank. I’ve always loved the color and delicate sweetness of this Belgian-style brew. It goes great with pizza…especially when said pizza is covered with hot peppers.

No joke, that’s the hottest curry I’ve ever had in my life. This was also a picture from my first ever restaurant review, back when I was doing them on my personal blog.┬áDublin House, Red Bank, New Jersey. June 2015,

I’ve never been inside Crate’s Liquor Store in Red Bank, New Jersey, but I just had to stop and photograph this awesome vintage signage. So much of it has been taken down everywhere, but even far-removed from their glory days, metal emblems like this still reek of Americana and a simpler time. That’s why there’s…

A welcome sight before any Japanese meal. Chopsticks ready to grab food, while the Sake is there to wash it all down. Toki Japanese Restaurant, Red Bank, New Jersey.

Two of the Best French Bakeries Around

When you think about it, Red Bank, NJ and New Hope, PA are very similar. Both are located near a river, both offer posh specialty shops, both have pricey restaurants (ranging from the well-executed to the pretentious). While New Hope may have a bit more history, one thing is for sure, the similarities include fantastic…

Restaurant Review: The Brothers Italian Cuisine (Red Bank, NJ)

I had not been to The Brothers in about five years. I remember the outside being nothing to look at, and the inside kind of dark and dram. But still, there was an atmosphere to it. Something old and classic. When I visited there the other day, I was surprised to see the inside was…

Five Mini Reviews of Restaurants Visited Before this Blog

I started Eating New Jersey last September. I was food blogging on my personal website for a few months prior to that. Around that time and slightly before it, I visited a few restaurants which I did not review on my blog. I either forgot about them or felt I could not write enough for…

Hunter’s Casual Crusades: Surf Taco (Red Bank, NJ)

While being spontaneous is a great quality, spontaneity with food choices is not something I want to participate in while I’m crawling for a bite to eat. I’m running on empty, hearing my stomach crying out in desperation. I need to stick to my roots— to what I know. What place has what food, and…

Travel Guide PA: Cafe Chocolate (Lititz)

With a name like Cafe Chocolate, you would not expect much else. That and we were told to go here for the fondue. I had no idea they actually had a menu with real food on it. And an eclectic menu at that: you could get Indian Mulligatawny soup, vegetable curry, or a grilled chicken…

Hunter’s Casual Crusades: Claudie’s Chicken (Red Bank, NJ)

Claudie’s barreled its way into the Dillon Family dinner cycle over a year ago, and due to our eager demand it may stay forever. Just about twice a week, you can walk into my house to the sight of overflowing pearly white buckets. The voluminous cardboard boats are rubber-banded together to hold the additional mouth-watering…

Hunter’s Casual Crusades: Mr. Pizza Slice (Red Bank, NJ)

I finished working a shift that started at 5 a.m. with a hockey game the night before that had me in bed at 2 that morning. Sleep deprived, my buddy texted me asking if I wanted to join him at some pizza place he recently posted about on social media. Uh oh. As we spoke,…
