Fare: American + Sushi
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.
Types of Food: Diner Fare + Greek Food + Surf and Turf
Price Range for 2: $25-$45
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!
