Witherspoon Grill, Princeton, NJ

Witherspoon Grill is one of our favorite restaurants in Princeton, NJ. Take note that the same owners own the Blue Point Grill, which is also located in Princeton and one of our favorite restaurants as well. You can see our review of the Blue Point Grill on TwoSquirts.

Princeton is a wonderful town.  It has character, is culturally diverse and has so much to offer. It was a beautiful day when we chose to dine at Witherspoon Grill for our review. It was sunny and warm and the outside dining area was in full swing. There is a great big courtyard in the front of the restaurant, which is very popular as a gathering place for people. (more…)

Char Steakhouse, 777 U.S. 202, Raritan, NJ

The Squirt: Unique Atmosphere and Great Steaks
Must Eat: Pretzel Rolls
Prices: Expensive

Char Steakhouse, Raritan, NJ

Char Steakhouse, Raritan, NJ

Recently we had a great dinner at Char located in Raritan, New Jersey. Char has a unique feel to it, very dimly lit with an interesting style to it. The restaurant has a really cool outdoor fire burning which gives it a dramatic appeal. When you walk into the restaurant, you immediately see that it has a NYC feel to it.  There are a few different dining areas and a large bar in the center.  Make sure you eat within the bar area of the restaurant or the dining room in the front of the restaurant. If you sit in the front, you’ll be able to see the outside fire from your table which will really add a great feel to your experience, especially after dark.  The rear dining room is a bit too dark for our tastes and a flashlight is needed to even see the menu. The theme of the restaurant is “fire”, so there are a few displays in the restaurant that add to that theme. In addition, the preparation of their food reflects that theme. (more…)

One South, Monmouth Junction, NJ

One South, Monmouth Junction, NJ

We had a terrific experience at One South Steakhouse, located in Monmouth Junction, New Jersey. We were all in the mood for a relaxing evening so we decided to give this place a try. Boy, we picked a good place for sure. It was a Sunday night, so it wasn’t as crowded …perfect for us!

The atmosphere at One South is very pleasant with a rustic yet elegant twist. There is also a Tiki Bar outside which we heard gets really crowded and hopping during the warm weather months. It was a wee bit chilly the evening we went, so we couldn’t try it out. The staff was really friendly and seated us immediately when they saw our hungry faces. As we walked to our table and looked around, we could see how all of the patrons enjoy this restaurant. (more…)

We had an awesome experience at Beso in Hollywood, California. Beso is brought to us by Actress Eva Langoria and Chef Todd English and located right on Hollywood Boulevard. When Ren and I arrived, in the pouring rain, (Yes, it was pouring rain in Sunny Southern California) the valet attendants were extremely accommodating. The host was friendly and attentive as well and took us right away to our table. One could see he is used to seating many other celebrities besides the infamous Roy and Ren from TwoSquirts.com (hee hee). (more…)

We have been to 3 West before and had an excellent experience there and today was just as terrific. (more…)

Salt Creek Grille Princeton, NJ

Salt Creek Grille, Princeton, NJ

Salt Creek Grille, Princeton, NJ

The other night, we went to Salt Creek Grille in Princeton. We have been there a few times before and have always enjoyed the total experience and food there. This time, we wanted to do a review. Salt Creek Grille is located in the Princeton Forrestal Village and has really great parking and easy access from US Rt 1. The building has a very tasteful rustic look and in the colder months they light their great outdoor fireplace.  This gives it a really great ambiance and as if you are entering a mountain cottage. Salt Creek Grille has two locations in New Jersey and three in California. They also feature specials on various days of the week, whether it is a buy-one-entree-get-one-free or discounts on wine. Of course, these specials are always subject to change.  We will enjoy them while they last. (more…)

Bouchon – The Venezia Tower The Venetian, Las Vegas, NV

Bouchon, Interior, Las Vegas, NV

Bouchon, Interior, Las Vegas, NV

Bouchon is a very elegant and visually appealing French Bistro located in the Venezia Tower of the Venetian Hotel.  Bouchon was another terrific experience for us.  It all started when we went to the restaurant during the day to make our reservations for dinner. We were greeted by Rebecca, the host. From the moment we met her, we clicked. She really has a fun loving and bright disposition. We really felt at ease chatting with her and had fun joking around with her during that short amount of time, while we made our reservation.  She reminded us of the famous singer, Vanessa Williams, so by the end, her nickname became, “Vanessa”.  We all looked forward to reconnect when we arrived for dinner.

Some stand out more than others, but they are all excellent. (more…)
