JJ Bitting is your typical brewpub, great rustic atmosphere, quality food that you can count on, and excellent home brews. They have live music on Thursday and Friday evenings, and outdoor seating available during the warmer months.
It is worth a trip to Warwick Apple Festival each fall, and while you're at it, you should stop by Warwick Valley Winery. The wines are very inexpensive and quite good. It is nice to support the local industries too.
You know a good restaurant when every time you arrive there are people standing outside waiting to be seated. E & V offers delicious Italian cuisine, at a very reasonable price. You can usually make two meals out of it too. My best advice is to go early, and they do allow call ahead seating too.
I seriously have dreams of these pirogis. They're that good. I love them all. But you have to try the apricot and the prune. Of course the original standards potato & cheese, and sauerkraut are sure crowd pleasers. Saute them with onion and butter and you'll soon be dreaming too!
My family is partly of Syrian descent, and we love our Mediterranean cuisine. Nouri's pita bread is the best. They also have all of the hard to find spices for your Syrian cooking needs at excellent prices. Try the olive bar!
Corrados garden center has a wide variety of plants, shrubs, flowers and all of your gardening needs. The prices are low, but sometimes the quality is not the greatest. You can find good things, but you might have to look harder than at other more expensive garden centers.
Jenn and Susye are the owners and two of the instructors at Hall of Light Yoga Studio. They are both excellent teachers, warm people, and beautiful spirits. They can brighten even your worst day. I love taking yoga at Hall of Light. They just moved to North Haledon to a lovely new space. Check it out for some R&R or a good workout. They also offer massage therapy. I am a frequent visitor to the massage room too.
The food at Jose's is wonderful and extremely fresh. The decor is authentic Mexican and very fun. They are a BYOB establishment. I recommend the Drunken Mushrooms (Hongos Borrachos) as an appetizer. Try the cactus enchiladas too!
I just attended a fund raiser at the Mountainside Inn, and have been going there for various parties and functions over the years. The food had been consistently good. They serve everything family style. They have recently renovated the place nicely, and it was very clean all around.
I stopped into Shoe Chic while on the hunt for wedding shoes. They had the largest selection of wedding and dyable shoes, both from Italy (for a pretty penny but COMFY and well made), and from (the usual these days) China. All very fashionable. They have lots of beautiful accessories and jewelry as well.
