The famous musician's restaurant became the best in New Jersey
The popular resource TripAdvisor, which allows its users to plan a future trip to any country in the world, named the best restaurant in New Jersey worth visiting. This restaurant is JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank.
The restaurant is the brainchild of the famous Jon Bon Jovi. It is an abbreviation of his name, according to the NJ 101,5.
The restaurant is his institution, to which the famous musician devotes a lot of time. But this place is no ordinary diner.
It's all about Jon Bon Jovi's "pay it forward" idea. You won't see regular prices on the menu. They offer you to make a donation or volunteer some of your time instead.
The authors of the article note that the staff and volunteers of JBJ Soul Kitchen are part of what makes this place so special, warm, and inviting.
In addition, JBJ Soul Kitchen serves fresh food that changes every two weeks. This makes it incredibly attractive to customers who come back here again and again.
Here you can taste classic American dishes such as turkey pie, pork loin with rosemary, cod with seasonings, sweet potatoes, and grilled chicken.
This is no ordinary restaurant. This is an experience that comes back and is remembered by people from all over the world who travel to visit it.
JBJ Soul Kitchen is not only a place to eat delicious food. It is also a place with an important social mission. "Yes, it's about delicious food, but it's also about generosity and community involvement," the authors add.
Another great restaurant in New Jersey is located in a historic building in Lambertville. It is called a real gem of a city in New Jersey.
The new restaurant is located in a building that has been operating as a railroad station since 1867. The building and the city went through hard times. Eventually, the building became an eatery with a relaxed upscale atmosphere with great food.
Last year, a well-known restaurant group called Genesis Hospitality opened an eatery in the historic building. The menu consists of a variety of modern American favorites with lots of options.
The food and service are excellent and well-suited for couples, families, and special occasions. If you want to stay over, there is a first-class riverside hotel across the parking lot.
The dining establishment uses non-standard stylistic solutions. An old ticket booth acts as a station hostess.
There are two indoor tiers along the old railroad track. If you are just interested in having a few cocktails instead of lunch or dinner, go downstairs.
The pub with a wine cellar is one of the most attractive and cosy places to relax in this establishment. If you prefer to dine outside, heaters provide comfort in cooler weather. If you want to get away from the kitchen, the towpath behind the restaurant is the perfect quiet place to stroll.
