Come check out the "Best New Restaurants: 20 Top Picks

New restaurants are popping up all over in Jersey and it’s because we “Jerseyans” are a sophisticated bunch (our other alter ego next to being tough and proving everyone else wrong).  It costs a lot to live this fabulously — Our high taxes, our preference to live in Jersey and not New York and “No” we don’t pump our own gas; we pay enough for it to have it pumped for us — We are that diamond in the rough producing a massive amount of talent, some of the biggest stars in the industries to prove it. New Jersey has more diners than anywhere else.  It’s the diner capital of the world with over 600 diners throughout the state.  You can have your homemade breakfast served every day, all day and we wonder why everyone else doesn’t do it this way and we know our pizza is better than yours.  But I digressed; I’m supposed to be writing about new restaurants.  Every year New Jersey Monthly Magazine shines the light on the best restaurants in the garden state; here are the "Best New Restaurants:  20 Top Picks" for you to partake and are surely a reflection of NJ taste.  My personal fav restaurant is Duke’s Southern Table located in Newark, NJ – What I call “upscale comfort foods”; I had the Maryland crab cakes and grits with collards and yams, something different, memorable and yummy; they have a small bar and every evening a Jazz band performs.  The place is small so it’s best to make reservations.  I also enjoyed the food at Scala Del Nonna located in Montclair, NJ – I had the homemade ricotta gnocchi and for dessert the caramelized, orange-scented cannoli, Mmm, Mmm…it was divine!  I swear I should have been born Italian because I love everything about their foods.  Make sure to BYOB.
