For my birthday we visited a restaurant here in Jersey. I have to say it was the best meal of my life. We had a catered meal about 90$ per person. The meal was consisted of 8 dishes. It was like having a tasting menu. This restaurant was traditional Japanese. This the website http://www.fujirestaurant.com/index.html
They were really understanding once I told them about my seating dilemma (wide hips)the hostess Ito actually said she was glad I said something. This way she can find a way to accommodate us, so we can be more comfortable. Once we were there she treated us great. I highly recommend this place. And the food was amazing! Also this restaurant is a BYOB. We brought a white wine Moscato and Sake.

Appetizer beef negima, asparagus tips wrapped in salmon, And monk fish liver



Tuna Tartar and Caviar



Fresh water Oysters

Sushi plater Dragon Roll and Nigirizushi

Here is my birthday meal from the Cheesecake Factory last weekend. I had the Louisiana Chicken Pasta...I love that stuff! And one of my favorite cheesecakes (and I've had several of them there) white chocolate caramel macadamia nut. Yum! I could use a piece of that right now. :eat2:
How was the pasta- looks very tasty & that cheesecake :eat2:
Glad to hear that your birthday meal was a hit

My goodness, this thread hasn't been posted in since October!! Let me break that sad streak by posting pictures of a delicious lunch shared with a fellow board member who has a love of lobster. I think we all know who that would be ;)

sorry there is as much of me in the pics as there is the food.....I think SVS may have just the food pics.

LOL the only pic I had of those you couldn't see the oysters themselves, just me eating it! I didn't think they'd be interested in just the shell ;)

I am happy to see this thread alive again.


I am in Baltimore for the weekend and I am all about crab. The first pic is of a crab cake. The picture doesn't really do it justice. IT was huge and tasty.

The second pic is of my crab alfredo. DAMN DAMN DAMN is all I can say. It was by far one of the best alfredo dishes I have ever had. For the first time ever there was more than enough sauce and crab for every noodle. I enjoyed this dish soooooo much. Makes me want to relocate. LOL


I am on the hunt for a restaurant that only serves crab that come with a bib and a mallet. I will post more pics soon. :)

Toni, now that I know you'll eat hardshell crabs, we must do that. I have trouble finding anyone who will do the newspaper on the table/pile of crabs and a mallet thing. I LOVE THAT :wubu:

There is a place down by Phil that we can go to. Let's see if anyone will go! It's a bit of a ride...but so worth it, IMO :) Right now they have a $12 lobster special and 2 dozen crabs for just $15. I WANT TO GO!

Grabbe's Seafood

Becky, not only didn't you post the one of you eating the oyster, you also didn't share the one of you and the clam, with butter dripping. I think you thought they were too porn-like ;)

Here are a few others:

View attachment 04-Me B-mary.jpg
I got one of those slammin' bloody marys too. Soooo good!


View attachment 07-oysters close.jpg
Here are the oysters rockefeller. Rich but really really good. I think Becky thought the rich sauce overpowered the taste of the oyster.


View attachment 09-me oysters rock.jpg
Me and an oyster. I think Becky should post her pic too!



View attachment 13-king crab.jpg
Alaskan King Crab legs. I protested when they put these in front of me. I paid a pretty penny for a pound of them and when I saw this plate, I said "whaaa...? Is that all?" And the waitress said they weighed them out and they are a pound. OK, if you say so. Truth is, there was so much crabmeat inside there was really enough. But still....sure looked lacking.

Great pics Randi! And just for you................



I even added the first pic of the lobster..the one where I had this crazed look on my face anticipating the lobster goodness.


I am jealous of the crab trip...I definitely live in the wrong part of the country.


eta: I did think the sauce on the Oysters Rock overpowered the taste of the oyster. It was good mind you, just didn't let the oyster flavor shine through. I am still dreaming of that meal......

Sounds like a perfect date to me!!!! After our conversation last weekend, we seem to have SOOOO much in common. :D


The first pic is of my crab aftermath. I have to say this was really fun. Mallets, crabs and beer. :eat1:

Second is my pit beef sandwich. I added mayo and bbq sauce to it. DAMN this sandwich was freaking good. I loved it.

Becky - yay! I am glad you posted the pics. I wish you lived closer - we'd have you sick of seafood in no time (is that possible??)

Btw, I liked that pic of you and the lobster better - you looked very excited!


Toni - OMG...I want crab aftermath of my own! I did notice you didn't get the best bits out of the knuckles. Was it all you can eat? I tend to be a lot less detail oriented in those situations. lol

And what's with that beef? I thought this weekend you were all about CRAB? :D

p.s. yeah, we do have a lot in common!

Went to Gary Danko with the family while in San Francisco. DAMN, it was good. I started with the roast maine lobster with potato purée, black trumpet mushrooms, edamame and tarragon and then had the lemon pepper duck breast with duck hash, carrot-ginger purée and vanilla poached rhubarb

My mom had the lobster salad with avocado, citrus, shaved fennel with meyer lemon-tarragon vinaigrette and then the branzini with stinging nettle gnocchi, asparagus and fried capers (truly delicious)


My dad also started with the lobster salad and then had the coriander crusted bison with sunchoke purée, braised endives and blood orange emulsion

My brother started with delicious lobster bisque (the best of the appetizers) and then had the braised lamp shoulder and herb crusted loin with barley stew, red pepper relish, and cumin yogurt.

We had a cheese course after that, among others, featured an AMAZING aged Gouda and a remarkable triple creme brie... yummy taleggio as well.

For dessert we shared a couple of chocolate soufflé with a chocolate sauce and a crème anglaise. Heaven!

Was too distracted at the time to take pics, so I borrowed some from online. :)

Our local BBQ place is under new management, so I stopped there yesterday for the special they were offering, 1/4 lb beef brisket, sausage link (Cajun in this case) and a bag of chips for $7.99. I added a bottle of sweet tea (made with real sugar) for a yummy lunch:

I try to not eat standard fare when I'm out on the road (I work in sales), and lunch is always my biggest meal of the day.

This past week, I ate at a Vietnamese place called Ph'o in Franklin Park, NJ, and it was a wonderful experience.

They have a large menu, are very reasonable, and the staff is extremely attentive.

I had the Vietnamese Spring Rolls, served with a hoisin peanut sauce, and also had the Curried Chicken Soup, served with yams, bean sprouts, sliced hot peppers, over rice vermicelli.

A lot of their dishes are shown on their website at http://pho99nj.com/
