It's not often that restaurants in Short Hills, New Jersey get reviewed by The New York Times.
And receive a GOOD Rating.
But our very own Enzzo's Trattoria did just that!
We have been going to Enzzo's since it first opened fifteen years ago. I will admit tho'...the fact the owner's name is Perri Urso is cool...can't say I meet many other Perri's spelled the same way.
The food is delicious and the restaurant is family friendly...always a plus.
Check out the review.

I just got back from the Summit Farmers Market with bags in hand.
Summit Farmers Market opened this morning, Sunday, June 15 in the Park & Shop Lot #2 on the corner of Maple Street and DeForest Avenue.
The market will be open every Sunday from 8AM to 1:30 PM until November 23rd (rain or shine). Some of my old favorites were back and some new surprises. There are a few purveyors that will start in the weeks to come.
Brownie Points Bakery
Since 1939 Town Hall Deli of
South Orange, New Jersey
has been making their
signature Sloppy Joes.
Beware, this is not your typical Sloppy Joe (a mess of ground beef in spicy tomato sauce on a bun.) This succulent sandwich is piled high with all the fixins: including homemade slaw, thin sliced Rye, Swiss Cheese, Roast Beef, Turkey (roasted on site), and of course the secret-sauce Russian Dressing.
Customers swear by this North Jersey staple.
In order to keep up with demand, owner Toni Wonski offers to...Continue Reading!
Last weekend we celebrated our son's birthday at one of our favorite Italian restaurants in New York City: Piccolo Angolo. They are known for their home-style cooking , generous portions and friendly staff. Before we left, Renato Migliorini, the owner, gave us the new Zagat "America's 1,000 Top Italian Restaurants (2008.) Of course they were in it. www.piccoloangolo.com. 621 Hudson Street (Jane St.) 212.229.9177.
We perused the book on the way home and were delighted that most of our favorite New Jersey...Continue Reading!
I'm not a big out-to-lunch kind of gal, however, I will always go out for Sushi.
The best deal in town is Samurai Sushi: in downtown Millburn, Maplewood Village and in Livingston, New Jersey. With three locations, you can always satisfy your craving as you drive around the area.
For only $8.95, their lunch special is fantastic: Miso Soup, Green Salad with a terrific sesame dressing and a choice of two roll...I am partial to salmon & avocado and yellowtail with scallion...both inside-out...Continue Reading!
Living along the Midtown Direct Train Line has its benefits: Great food within a ten minute drive in any direction!
I like to cook--sort of. We are fortunate to be able to sit down together as a family four/five nights a week. Sometimes I make dinner. Sometimes my husband does. He is a much better chef...just ask him :)
Last week, however, was special...it was my birthday!!! So I went out a lot with friends and family...a seven day celebration at my favorite restaurants...Continue Reading!
If you are looking for Great Italian food...try Stretch's across from Livingston Center. We eat there at least three times a month.
We can always count on good service, large portions and reasonable prices. The kids have loved it since they were little (they are in high school now.)
Stretch's got it's start from Belmont Tavern in Bloomfield, NJ...which has been around forever!!! I recently found a recipe for their famous Chicken Savoy. I never made it. Didn't need to...we just go to Stretch's for...Continue Reading!
"Perri was very reactive AND proactive. Clearly, she has an excellent grasp of the towns and counties she covers and went the extra mile to educate us on an area we were not entirely familiar with." Steve & Laura Lee
