Central Jersey’s ‘go-to’ restaurants and what to order (Opinion)
Everybody has their favorite "go-to' restaurant when they travel. Many times hitting that place for your favorite meal there is the best part of making the trip to that area.
Last month, I asked what's your favorite "go-to" restaurant at the Jersey shore and the response was overwhelming. But in November, the shore is a long way away.
This time I ask: What's your favorite "go-to" restaurant in Central Jersey and what do you order when you get there? Remember, these aren't food critics or experts, just people who love what they love from these places and are recommending them to you.
Take their advice and enjoy, or as we say, "Mangia!"
