Kinchely’s Tavern in Ramsey

The famous Kinchley’s! Around since 1937, it’s been serving some of the best thin-crust pizza in the region for 80 years. Cracker-thin, and just as shatteringly crispy. Even though I am on my low-carb regimen, I had to have a […]


Se7te in Totowa

The pizza at Se7te is pretty darn good. But what I got had much fewer carbs. It was quite tasty indeed. Mozzarella, prosciutto, arugula. . . . . . ———————————- #foodie #foodporn #foodgasm #nom #nomnom #food #yummy #hungryaf #westchester #rocklandcounty […]


Sophia in Englewood

A cocktail and a snack at Sophia in Englewood, after the Englewood Night Market. What a lovely place. I’ll be back.      Grilled octopus with celery and olives: Related posts: Get Thee to The Cookery Lunch: Salmon and Apples Five […]


To Morristown, for History

Our beach day is a washout. So we decide to head to Morristown to see some Revolutionary War history. But first. Breakfast. And before that, a cool car. Little girls! With hot chocolate! In Morristown, at Jockey Hollow, we learn […]

Boardwalk! Dinner and an Arcade

Our big night out! Robinson Ale House for supper, then a stroll on the Boardwalk with the kiddos. Not too many photos from dinner, but here’s my salad! Slick with rain. The Arcade Museum was a huge hit. Family. Related posts: […]


A Taco Affair in Little Falls

A cool new taco spot near the office, where you can get lettuce wraps instead of tortillas. Hooray! Related posts: Supper at Surf Taco The Taco Project, Tarrytown Lunch at Surf Taco Lunch at Henry’s Farm to Table at Buttermilk […]


The Crosby in Montclair

The Crosby is a new-ish spot in Montclair — a great spot for drinks, especially considering how few places have liquor licenses in New Jersey. The space is open and airy, and the cocktail menu was creatively devised (bonus: the drinks are […]


Jack’s Lobster Shack in Edgewater

I never thought I’d say this. At Jack’s Lobster Shack in Edgewater, I favor the Connecticut-style lobster roll — that is, the one served warm with butter — over the Maine style. Heresy, I know! I have always, always preferred […]


Hunan Taste in Denville

There’s quite a spectacle of a restaurant in downtown Denville. Hunan Taste, which has been around since 1986, presents the full-on, high-end Chinese dining experience. It was named best Chinese restaurant in the state by The Daily Meal. The menu […]


Big Day of Birthday Fun

A big city day to celebrate my birthday. First, a trip to MoMA, then lunch at The Modern, a matinee, and dinner at a barbecue joint. We even had a nightcap back in Nyack. Day drinking! Gin cocktail, with apricot, […]


Rocky’s Pasties in Wharton

Every culture’s got a meat pie. Turns out the miners from Cornwall, England, who settled in the hills of Morris County, N.J. have one too: a pastie. Rocky’s in Wharton has been selling them for four generations. The meat pastie […]


A Visit to the Archives of The Record

The Record has a rich and long history, and has chronicled the history of North Jersey for more than 150 years. The archives are meticulously organized, and stored at the printing facility in Rockaway. We paid the archive a visit, […]


Lunch at Cyndia’s

A new favorite lunchtime place near the office: Cyndia’s. It’s an adorable little luncheonette in Totowa, N.J., with all homemade — and delicious — food. Today, in honor of the first flight to Cuba, I ordered a Cubano. The 411 […]


The Greek Village

A nice little Greek restaurant in Northvale, N.J., just over the border from Tappan. Hand-cut calamari: Greek sausage. Nice! FF with oregano. An unhappy child. My gyro was delishy. Falafel for Samantha. Good food! The 411 on The Greek Village. […]


Morning at Van Saun Park

A nice little morning at the park in Paramus, which has a train, a petting zoo and a carousel. A fine way to spend a few hours! Here we go into the tunnel! A peacock! Old cart: A pig. Should […]


Settling in at The Record

After a couple of weeks getting to know our colleagues, Ed and I are settling in to our new newsroom. Thanks to everyone for making us feel so welcome. Related posts: Wednesdays at Dunne’s Greg Puts Up 6 Kilos of […]


Bobby’s Burger Palace

After a trip to the Design Within Reach warehouse sale, we stopped on our way back at the Bergen Town Center in Paramus for a few things and a quick stop at Whole Foods. For lunch, we hit Bobby’s Burger […]


Supper at Grange in Westwood, N.J.

Grange in Westwood has been open about two months, and executive chef Christine Nunn — whom some Bergen restaurant fans may recognize from the restaurant Picnic, in Fair Lawn and from her new book, The Preppy Cookbook — has created […]
