Must Eats: Northern Style Spare Ribs, Chang’s Spare Ribs, Mongolian Beef

A few years ago, we saw a new restaurant going up on U.S. Route One in Princeton. We were giddy with excitement, hoping for some place delectable. Sometime later, we saw the familiar giant horses, and we were soooooooo excited! We KNEW it was P.F. Chang’s! We had been to a few of their other locations, and we were so happy to have one coming near us. We looked forward to enjoying their delicious modern day Asian food dishes. To this day, a lot of locals continue to be excited, as the wait can be over two hours on a weekend! (more…)

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…)
The Squirt: Elegant Asian BYOB Restaurant with Great Food
Must Eats: Sliced Chicken with Sweet Basil
Hanami is an elegant Asian restaurant, located in Princeton, New Jersey. It has a very elegant style and a vast amount of visually appealing accents.
The furnishings at Hanami are very tasteful and classy. There is a sparkly crystal tree in the center of the main dining room that really adds to the elegance of the room. There are a few additional rooms, as well as a sushi bar. If it is dark outside, and you are able to sit along the windows, you will be able to enjoy the view of the pretty landscaping and lighting outside of your window. Hanami definitely has an upscale feel to it, but the prices are pleasing and the portions are excellent. That is definitely a plus in our book. (more…)
The Squirt: Three floors of elegant, yet casual, Italian Mediterranean dining.
Must Eat: Rustic Baked Lasagna
Prices: Moderate to Expensive
Tre Piani is located in the Princeton Forrestal Village in Princeton, New Jersey. It serves excellent Italian-Mediterranean cuisine. The atmosphere is causal elegant and has an open feeling dining room on the main level with high ceilings and other dining rooms on the 2nd and third levels. They are also excellent for parties for larger groups. I can verify for that, having attended a suprise birthday party at Tre Piani a few years ago. They have a great menu selection ranging from appetizers, salads, light entrees and pastas, all the way to excellent regular dinner entrees. They do have many fish selections, for fish lovers, as well as meat dishes. (more…)
The Squirt: Great BYOB restaurant for truly delicious authentic Mexican Food!
Must Eat: Guacamole Nachos
We had our typically great experience last night at Tortuga’s Mexican Village, located in Princeton, NJ. We were joined by our friends, Jean and Bob for this event.
Tortuga’s Mexican Village (TMV) is a small neighborhood authentic Mexican Restaurant, on a little side street near Princeton Hospital. It has been a landmark there for over 20 years. One thing to remember before you go there, is to have cash on hand, being that it is a cash-only restaurant and be prepared to hunt for a parking spot on the local streets. (more…)
If you are in the mood for great thin crust pizza, in a fast paced, no-frills, college town landmark, then Conte’s Pizza in Princeton, NJ, is for you. It’s very popular among the locals and they can get really crowded and hectic on Fridays and Saturdays, so be prepared for a long wait if you happen to go on one of those nights. Conte’s is located on Witherspoon Street; a bit away from the center of town. (more…)
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…)
Last night, we went to a Caymus Wine Dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Princeton. We had an awesome time. First of all, Ruth’s Chris is our favorite steak house. It’s a top notch steak house with locations all over the world. We’ve been to other locations including New York, Hawaii, Virginia Beach and Washington DC, to name a few. Some stand out more than others, but they are all excellent. (more…)
Blue Point Grill is our favorite seafood restaurant. It’s located in downtown Princeton, right on Nassau Street. It is a classy yet casual restaurant and the entire staff is very professional, friendly and warm. A really great crowd frequents this place being that this restaurant is located in a world famous college town, drawing people from all over the world. This is another BYOB restaurant and if you happen to forget to bring your wine there is a wine shop right down the street within walking distance. We have been going there for years and have never had a bad meal. If we are in the mood for a seafood experience, we go there. (more…)
