I swore to boycott Loews plaza built on the fairgrounds/racetrack.
We live in Hunterdon.. and are about to get a pick up!
There is no ethnic food here - no chinese no Indian. There is thai in Lambertville. you have to haul ass up North, what, to Sussex before you get decent German. There use to be a great German place on 22.
Matt's Red Rooster is really good. Cook-to-order in Flemington sort of across from Home depot is good enough - spotty though. Lambertville has some good places. I haven't eaten at Frenchtown Inn or whatever it is... I used to love the Union Hotel. I really hope the new owners can make a go of it.
and I love WDVR! Heehee! Seargentsville Inn - another spotty but good. Never ate at Milford Oyster House. Haven't tried the new Ryland Inn yet either.
(Removed redundant rant on nouveau rich in Hunterdon who are still better than the self-important overworked over-sheltered nouveau in Somerset - the driving of each set says it all - they're faster more rude and more brainlessly self important up in Morris/Somerset.)
Hey - BBQ on 31 - that's a good Applebees replacement. I hate catering to chains.
I ate at BBQ on 31 when it first opened and I recall there being more flies than I had ever seen in a restaurant. Never went back. Which is a shame because if there weren't trees, I could see it from my house. Though I guess BBQ has done better than the last couple places that inhabited that building, steakhouse guy got killed, first murder in Clinton in how long?
http://www.nytimes.c...-in-murder.html - Actually pretty interesting stuff. Does anyone know if they ever solved it? I know there were rumors of it being family, etc, but I don't recall if they ever caught anyone. Now it's ten years later. I've actually seen his house(from a distance) and there is NO WAY anyone sneaks up on you there or even goes up the REALLY long driveway to rob his house, which you can't see from the street. I would have to assume he was done in by family or friend.
Before that it was something else, I can't recall exactly, it didn't last too long though.
There's not even options for good chinese in Clinton Twp or the surrounding area, it's peking wok or someplace that isn't as good. Pru Thai is ok, it's eh though, not great, kinda pricey. I do like Aikou in Flemington, in the Pier One/Staples plaza, they're a sushi/japanese cuisine place, but they're pretty good. The thing I want the most is a quality deli though. I'd kill to be able to go somewhere for lunch, that's nearby and has a wide range of hot and cold sandwiches. That would be really great because Just Subs is mediocre at best and so is Ye Olde Sub Base, eh. If I want a sandwich now, I drive all the way to Somerville and go to the new Primos on 22 there. I also like Catered Affair in Hillsborough, but that's bit farther. It's damn near criminal that I have to leave the county to buy a good sandwich.
If I had to pick the best restaurant within like 30 mins drive, it's probably Marsha Brown's in New Hope, which is the one in the church. Great steaks.
WDVR is one of the few stations that comes in with regularity in the area. Hunterdon is some sort of radio abyss in which signals all die. Otherwise you're stuck with the standards, 93.3 which for some awful reason, plays philly games and nascar races instead of music at times, 95.1 where you have to listen to nikki sixx and his stupid side kick woman reading the weather while also reading a romance novel. Stupid. 99.9 has gotten progressively worse since I've listened to it, 102.9 sorta comes in, is tolerable and every once and a while if you're pointed in the right direction you can get 104.3 or maybe even 105.5, probably two of the better radio stations.
I do have to say I wish I got went to the black potatoe fest a few years back when Hot Tuna played an acoustic set there, but I'm always broke, so I never bother to go and have never gotten any perspective on whether it sucks or if it's alright. Anybody have any input on it?
