There are reasons why the Lun Wah Restaurant has been in business since 1974. Those reasons become quite apparent almost immediately upon entering the restaurant. You forget, for a moment, you're in Roselle, NJ and are quickly taken away to the scenic atmosphere of the beautiful Polynesian Islands. The Hawaiian feel and tone is captured perfectly by the Lun Wah's decor, consisting<br />of real bamboo which layers the walls, lovely pictures of the Islands, and a beautiful natural rock running waterfall in which water falls into a fish pond with real fish. There is a bamboo bar with hanging colored blowfish lamps, which serves the best drinks in town, waiters greet you donning colorful Hawaiian shirts and the final touch- the restaurant's lighting, which is dimly lit creating the ambience and setting of an evening in Polynesian paradise. Reserve online now!

The Frog and The Peach, located in downtown New Brunswick, NJ is one of the Garden State’s premier dining venues, recently named NJ’s best “All Around” restaurant for “its impressive New American cuisine” and rated fourth most popular restaurant in the state by Zagat Survey. Whether seated in one of the warm and inviting alcoves of this stylish, swank restaurant set on two levels, in the newly renovated outdoor Garden, or in the inviting bar area, diners will enjoy Chef/Proprietor Bruce Lefebvre’s modern American menu with a seductive international spin. Try signature selections like the Tuna Sashimi with cucumber salad and lemongrass broth, Black Truffle Gnocchi with almond basil pesto or Tea Cured Duck Breast with a jasmine rice cake, pea greens, shiitake mushrooms and smoked duck jus. The award winning wine list offers 400 selections carefully chosen by wine director Jim Mullen.

"We finally found that good old fashion sit down Chinese restaurant! It's like a step back in time. Wish they had more "Polynesian" food. The appetizers rule! Scallion pancakes, shrimp toast and winter melon soup were great! Huge portions, so count in sharing or taking home leftovers. It looked like everyone was taking a bag home. The duck was not good but not my favorite way of preparing it."

A Toute Heure, the local bistro located in the Centennial Village of Cranford, uses the freshest ingredients sourced from local farms + markets. Their new American menu is an exploration of the best ingredients the season has to offer. Enjoy lunch or dinner in the charming dining room. The food is incredibly wine friendly, so BYO. <br /><br />Opened in May of 2007, this small bistro, run by Andrea & Jim Carbine is making an impression with their strong connection to local farmers and artisans. Jame's Beard nominee, Andrea Carbine tends to the bistro's own gardens, and works with farmers to select the best of the seasonal bounty for the menu. The kitchen is led by talented Executive Chef Kara Decker + her Chef de Cuisine Robyn Reiss. A Toute Heure received Edible Jersey magazine's 2008 "Local Hero" award for restaurants.<br /><br />A Toute Heure's sister restaurant is 100 Steps Supper Club + Raw Bar!

Zengo is a sophisticated blend of Latin-Asian styles and flavors. Chef Richard Sandoval, whose accolades include Bon Appétit Restaurateur of the Year and Mexico’s Toque d’Oro, artfully spins Latin-Asian ingredients into beautifully balanced dishes. Light preparations and tasting portions invite sampling and sharing a variety of items. To complement the cuisine, Zengo offers one of the largest collections of tequila and agave-based spirits in the United States. Guests may sample over 400 varieties in the downstairs Tequila Library. Zengo also boasts an extensive list of Latin wines and Japanese sakes, which are best enjoyed at the mezzanine level Wine & Sake Bar. The cocktail menu showcases Latin-Asian classics made with fine spirits and fresh, hand-muddled fruits.
