Now for our first blog entry…let’s talk about Bensi in North Brunswick, NJ.- one of our fave restaurants and one we frequent quite often. The prices are good and the food is always a hit. What stands out, is the friendly atmosphere that Bensi provides.
We always have an awesome time when we eat there. Nichole is always the pleasant host, Matt is a gracious manager and the wait staff is always friendly. Our server for the evening was Roxanne. She is always down to earth and very professional. As always, she greeted us with a hearty smile and throughout the evening, we were well taken care of. Last night, we ordered the fried calamari for an appetizer with a side of cool pesto to dip. Yummy! As always, a good choice. We also ordered a cup of cream of asparagus soup which was also excellently prepared. Our wine pairing was Citra chardonnay, an Italian wine, which is a very good wine at a great price.
Next were our entrees: Grilled chicken ceasar salad, and two orders of Tilapia Parmigiana. The tilapia was actually a concoction of ours and they were happy to oblige with our special request. It was a spur of the moment idea, and we had no idea it would be so good. The fish was tender and breaded with panko bread crumbs and was delicious prepared parmigiana style. Instead of pasta we always order sauteed spinach with garlic. We have to balance out somewhere! lol.
Needless to say we left nicely full after our hearty but healthy meal. Roxanne helped us to have a nice experience and on the way out we even had a nice conversation with Matt, the manager.
We had another great dinner and experience at Bensi. We are always recommending it to our friends. Check it out!
