You often hear the word “hero” associated with soldiers and rescue workers. But never have you heard it in terms of Public Health. John L. Leal made history by reducing typhoid by disinfecting water supplies in the state of NJ.

This Day in Water History

 

March 13, 1914: Death (in Paterson, NJ) of John L. Leal, physician and water treatment expert who pioneered chlorine disinfection in the U.S. There are many unsung heroes who contributed significantly to public health at the turn of the 20th century. John L. Leal is one of them and after reading this, I think you will agree that he did more than most to save people’s lives.

John L. Leal was born in the small town of Andes, New York on May 5, 1858. His father, John Rose Leal was a physician who joined the 144th Regiment, New York Volunteers and fought in the Civil War. During the siege of Charleston, South Carolina, John Rose Leal contracted what was most likely a case of amoebic dysentery from contaminated drinking water. He suffered from the disease for more than 17 years before he finally died of it…

Urban Table is anything but pedestrian

Fare:  American + Sushi

Atmosphere: Casual/Lounge

Price Range for 2:  $30-$50

An eclectic menu for an eclelctic town.  The Urban Table is located in the middle of down town Morristown, and features a menu that spans across two continents.  The menu might seem a little strange at first, but despite would be complaints from Food Network’s Robert Irvine, Urban Table pulls it off with style.  It’s atmosphere is sophisticated, upbeat, and features good portions for good prices.  While sushi aficionados may be slightly disappointed with it’s limited selection as it only offers the most basic of sushi (california, spicy tuna rolls, etc.).

Urban Table, a place for cool customers

Urban table is far from a one trick pony, it’s burgers will entice you with their uniqueness.  My personal favorite is their Baja California Burger.  The guacamole will cool of the tasty spice of the pepper jack cheese.  Enjoy one of their burgers with one of their craft brews on tap from the Jersey proud Trap Rock Brewery.  The wine and beer list will rival any other bar in town and will satisfy the snootiest of beer buffs.  This place great for a quick lunch or an evening out with some friends.

As seen on tv

Types of Food:  Diner Fare + Greek Food + Surf and Turf

Price Range for 2:  $25-$45

Atmosphere:  Casual

New Jersey’s Diners have become something of a phenomenon.  Often referred to as “The Diner Capital of the World” New Jersey’s eateries have become both a local tourist attraction and something of a national fascination.  When Food Network’s Guy Fieri visited the restaurant for his T.V. show “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives” it put the Jefferson Diner on the Map.  The Jefferson Diner, which seemed to always be busy, became even more-so with the national attention that it got.  The Jefferson Diner has also been featured on “Good Morning America”

The Jefferson Diner has gathered local acolades as well.  It has been voted #1 Diner in Morris County 7 times in a row.

If you are looking to get a cheeseburger and a shake or a hot dog all the way, this place is good.  But the menu does not stop there.  The Jefferson Diner has an extensive menu that features Greek, Seafood, and Steak.  Almost anything you could want is in this menu.  The only complaint I have is that when I go there hungry, I can have trouble deciding what exactly I want to eat!

But what exactly makes the Jefferson Diner so special?  The menu that is offered is bigger than most Jersey diners that I have been to.  The portions are quite big, and it has the quintessential “diner atmosphere” that out-of-staters would find quite charming.

If you are travelling through the area going up north, or just curious about this as-seen-on-tv eatery it’s worth a visit!

SOGO is SO TASTY!

Fare:  Japanese

Dinner for 2:  $45-$60

Hibachi anyone???

If you have never been to a hibachi restaurant this is a good place for your first experience.  The decor in this restaurant almost justifies the high prices that it has, but it is a great alternative to a hibachi restaurant in Manhattan (and you’ll probably get more food too).SOGOSOGO features a large sushi menu that will satisfy the most seasoned of sushi lovers.  Featuring several types of rolls that you won’t find in most places.  For example, the Brooklyn roll has tuna, salmon, tempura and, wait for it, mango.  SOGO not only features Japanese food, but it also ventures into Thailand as well.

The Thai shrimp has that eastern spice to it that will leave your mouth-watering for more.  This hip hibachi restaurant truly offers “dinner and a show” the chefs will dazzle you with their cooking skills.  Be sure to make reservations ahead of time, as this place is always full during the weekends.  SOGO is excellent for any kind of celebration, sushi buffs, and is perfect for date night.
