In the casual and comfortable setting of Emeril's Chop House, the warm design evokes the timeless craftsmanship of American industry– bronze metal ribboned screens outline the entrance, earth tone colors of leather & beige mohair furnishings contrast with the restaurant’s transparent reflective surfaces & circular crystal pendant light fixtures. The chef’s food bar has a leather panel front & hand finished white-washed oak millwork, & overlooks the open-action kitchen. Two curved wine cellars with polished steel wine racks separate the private dining areas from the rest of the space, & are encircled with a splash of red on the custom carpets. The restaurant’s combination of craftsmanship & elegance is perfectly reflected in the original artwork by local artist Michael Kessler, who achieves his effect with layer upon layer of acrylic paint on wood panel & relies on natural gesture to create his organic forms.

"The amberjack fish entree was delicious, as I have found Emeril's to usually be. This time I found the service to be extremely slow - after making a note that we would have 4 servers attending our table that evening, there was a good hours delay between the finishing of our salad and getting our entrees - a bit too long for a restaurant in a gambling casino. Would still recommend for excellnt food."

The idea of master chef Filippo Russo is to bring the Italian culture of gastronomy to Somerville, New Jersey. Through his philosophy, Da Filippo's Ristorante is recognized by European patrons spanning as far east as Japan and Singapore. With his profound knowledge in the culinary field Filippo Russo is able to present a level of authenticity through his dishes, replicating his mother's recipes as...well as the environment Filippo was exposed to in Sicily.<br><br>Over the years Da Filippo's Ristorante received numerous reviews from the New York Times, New Jersey Monthly Magazine and Zagat survey, The Star-Ledger and The American Academy of Restaurant and Hospitality Sciences. The most honorable recognition presentated to Filippo Russo is the Luigi Veronelli Award of Northern American fine Italian dining and Ignazio Miceli from Regaleali Winery Sicily. When guests arrive at Da Filippo Ristorante they are welcomed with European hospitality while finding themselves in a rustic ambiance

"Enjoyed an excellent dinner at Filippo Autentica Cucina. The roasted rolled pork special of the day was fabulous, and the service was super attentive. It is a BYOB to allow you to bring your favorite wine. Would definitely recommend dining here."

Welcome to the Glen Gardner Inn <br><Br>We feature distinguished dining in a historic, country inn setting. Our menu offers both full size and small plate portions. Our wine list consists of great vineyard names at value prices. In the Tap Room, we have the best available imported and domestic craft and micro-brewed beers on draft.<br /><br><br>SMALL PLATE OFFERINGS AT THE GLEN GARDNER INN <br>The Inn offers most of its entrées in a half-sized portion option. By ordering and sharing many small plates, you can sample an<br />array of culinary treats, and without over ordering, satisfy a desire for taste exploration. This concept has been enthusiastically received at the Inn where diners are enjoying the experience of designing their own small plate medley or swapping and sampling around the table.<br /><br />PLEASE BE AWARE THAT RESERVATIONS MADE THROUGH OPEN TABLES ARE NOT ELIGABLE TO RECEIVE FREQUENT DINER POINTS. FREQUENT DINER POINTS WILL NOT BE AWARDED ON THOSE TABLE CHECKS.

"The red snapper entree was excellent, however my wife's veal tips this time were a bit disappointing - tough and fatty - unlike on a previous time when they were tender and excellent. Would still recommend Glen Gardner Inn for a fine dining experience. Service is always excellent."

In the casual and comfortable setting of Emeril's Chop House, the warm design evokes the timeless craftsmanship of American industry– bronze metal ribboned screens outline the entrance, earth tone colors of leather & beige mohair furnishings contrast with the restaurant’s transparent reflective surfaces & circular crystal pendant light fixtures. The chef’s food bar has a leather panel front & hand finished white-washed oak millwork, & overlooks the open-action kitchen. Two curved wine cellars with polished steel wine racks separate the private dining areas from the rest of the space, & are encircled with a splash of red on the custom carpets. The restaurant’s combination of craftsmanship & elegance is perfectly reflected in the original artwork by local artist Michael Kessler, who achieves his effect with layer upon layer of acrylic paint on wood panel & relies on natural gesture to create his organic forms.

"Fantastic spot for upscale dining in a casino - the New Zealand Reef fish special was one of the best fish entrees I have had in a long time, and the service was top notch. Truly an excellent dining experience."
