AAA Inspector Notes
Chef-owner Brian Gualtieri has brought his knowledge and skills to a small, quiet setting in Ocean Township. The menu is creative and modern; ingredients are fresh and of high quality, drawing upon many local sources. Porcini day boat-seared scallops are superlative, as is a hazelnut/fig "PB&J" pan-seared foie gras and a herb-seared steak. The restaurant is located toward the rear of a small mall in the moderately upscale community, just north of Asbury Park. It might aptly be described as a hidden gem in Monmouth County.
