Ask for Ike (Ikasa) and say “omakase” and hello from me. This Japanese restaurant is one of my favorite places in the world, having eaten there well over 500 times over the years. It’s the best. www.shumirestaurant.com
Lim makes some of the most authentic, distinct Thai food... and his generous spirit makes it worth the trip. www.thaikitchennj.com
For the ultimate, tiny, red sauce joint check out this “house” in the middle of a residential neighborhood in Raritan, NJ. Ask for Bobby or Sweeney and don’t miss the braciole.
