My family and my daughter's girl scout troop are regular visitors to Trailside. There are many activities that are not usually advertised to the public (other than a small article in the local paper), so it is definitely well worth getting on their mailing list to see what's coming up.
PROS: Variety of fun and learning for the whole family
CONS: As part of the Watchung Reservation can be hard to find
What looks like a small, plain restaurant from the outside, becomes a very elegant, yet affordable fine restaurant. The service is very pleasant and attentive and the food is very plentiful and delicious.
PROS: Gourmet meals, not "run of the mill"
CONS: Difficult to spot from the road
No matter what time you visit, you are always greeted with a smile and fast service. The cleaning service is excellent, and the tailoring is very professional. If something can't be done well, they will tell you and recommend against any service that may ruin a garment. We have been going there for years after trying many other cleaners, and would never consider taking our business elsewhere.
PROS: Excellent Prices (Shirst are $1 -- no coupons, no hassles)
CONS: Located in a very busy strip
This is a very popular place in New Providence. It seems after every event (First Day of School, Winning (or Losing) soccer, basketball game, etc.) this is the place to be. With fast service and yummy ice cream, Zita's can't be beat.
PROS: Fast Service, great ice cream, friendly people
CONS: Since it's so popular, it may be very crowded with a wait.
This restaurant is split into two -- pizza and take-out on the left, fine dining on the right. Either choice is a winner with fresh food, great atmosphere, and reasonable prices. It is owned and operated by a local family that knows their customers and treats everyone as a special guest.
PROS: Fresh, delicious food.
CONS: It's a very busy place, but rarely do you have to wait long.
