Hey Thrillist, we could have informed you so.

The preferred meals and wine web site found out what we in New Jersey have acknowledged for fairly some time: Excellent taking in, make that wonderful feeding on, can be experienced outside the house of New York Town. Sure, in New Jersey! 

In a the latest put up naming “20 Most effective Suburban Eating places Outside of NYC.” Thrillist mentioned that “suburban eating exterior of NYC is far better than ever.” (Michelin, are you listening?) The “suburbs” covered are New Jersey, Connecticut, Upstate New York, Extensive Island and Westchester. 

So which New Jersey dining establishments has the giant food stuff website declared to be the finest?

It names 4 — all in North Jersey: Sushi Aoki in Fort Lee, Razza in Jersey City, Bread & Salt in Jersey City and Jack’s Lobster Shack, which has various spots. (For the total Thrillist restaurant checklist, click on below.)
