I reviewed Key Food on Yelp - and am in total agreement with you guys. The produce, for the most part, looks better with more competitive prices than at ShopRite. And I've bought 2 lb of strawberries from Key Food in the past 2 days. Can't get enough!!!

Try Studio 17 - not sure what their prices are for just the blow out, but cut and blowdry/style is $40.

Went to this place today - couldn't pass up trying a new Italian place in the Italian Village! Didn't disappoint. Great people. Husband got the 12" pepperoni pizza, I got a small chicken parm sandwich, and we both took home lots of leftovers. The ambiance was very nice, food was clearly freshly made and yummy (I saw them rolling out the pizza dough!), and the bill was ridiculously low.

WELCOME to the neighborhood!

The vegetable dumplings were GREAT! They were flavorful and full to bursting with veggies! The outside of the dumpling was thick, pliable doughy goodness. We also got the chicken-basil dumplings and beef lo mein.

We should suggest that they make some tofu (with the same flavoring and seasonings as the chicken). Why not?

You can use the canned chipotles in adobo for smoky chili - it's easy to use and tastes great! If you're looking for dried and smoked jalapenos (I think that's what chipotle is)...you might try ShopRite...their Spanish/Indian aisle has tons of dried peppers.

Most addictive fried chicken ever! It is really popular in K-town in NYC - see article that really catapulted it to fame!

So glad to have something like this here on Newark Ave!

Thanks, everyone! I needed nori to make California rolls for a work potluck...so I needed to find someplace nearby and convenient. A&P!

You guys are the best!

Edgewater's Mitsuwa is great, and is my mom's Japanese shop of choice, even though she lives in central NJ. When I was little, I looked forward to the "long drive" and then eating yummy unagi-don in the food court.

Where can I get nori (and other Japanese ingredients) in downtown JC? Does anyone know if either Nha Trang grocery or the Korean marts on Newark have it?

Mikey, the husband said that the harissa sauce was HOT and that the owner offered an even hotter sauce that he had available! :-/ Too hot for me, but hope you like it! :)

I didn't see lamb shwarma, but he does have chicken shwarma. But I'm sure if you stop by and offer suggestions, he will be glad to accomodate!

Owner is an energetic young guy eager to promote good, healthy food in the neighborhood.

We tried it tonight! The chicken shwarma wrap was awesome - healthy and light while still extremely flavorful, with perfectly cooked chicken. I think this place will do well if they emphasize their healthy Mediterranean options - great for the neighborhood and will suit the tastes of the yoga studio patrons next door!

Heights, I'm not sure that it's trying to be a pure Italian place! The places you mention sound great, but I have never been to the Heights so can't post my input on them!

3 Boys Pizza and Falafel - New Ownership and New Menu

We just noticed that 3 Boys Pizza (4th and Monmouth) reopened under new ownership and has a completely different menu...they still serve pizza (plain, grilled veggie, and pepperoni), but also have a Mediterranean/healthy new twist!

You can get hummus, babaghanoosh, or tacos/pitas/wraps/rice platters of falafel, Moroccan grilled chicken, Shwarma chicken, Tunisian tuna, or grilled vegetables! You can also order pizzas with these toppings.

I live really close by and can't wait to try it!

As I drove by around 5 PM, I saw a bunch of cop cars parked in the middle of the street and a lot of police activity. It lasted until at least 5:45 PM, when my husband came home. This was right near Frank's pizza and the Barge Inn. Anyone know what was going on?

Just wanted to give a shout out to DeCarlos, a custom tailor on Monmouth between 3rd and 4th.

We've been using him for alterations for some time now - always does a fantastic job. Recently, my fiance bought a pair of custom-made pants from DeCarlos. I can't believe how amazing they look - all the little touches and details - and how perfect the fit is.

Thanks, DeCarlos! You've made my guy very happy!

Tried this last weekend. Good service and nice touch that the owner walked around and chatted up all the tables. We had the stuffed vegetables, which was a huge serving of stuffed pepper, mini eggplants, and mini zucchinis, plus a heap of rice flavored with tomato sauce! It was enormous and was enough for dinner and lunch the next day.

My fiance got the chicken kebob, which was nicely cooked and came with rice and salad.

One suggestion would be to be a tad more aggressive with the seasoning. I love that the taste of the ingredients came through, but the flavors could be intensified somewhat.

We dropped in this past Saturday night and it was really packed! Good ambiance, eclectic crowd, easily one of the best outdoor spaces of any downtown JC spot. :) The decor was very classy and inviting. We bumped into a few of our neighbors there!

I was wary walking by for all these months, but so glad we decided to venture in!

Some of us newbies just didn't realize the type of element that frequents these bars existed in our neighborhood! Guess we *should have* figured that out before buying the nice condo around the corner!

But seriously, hindsight is 20/20. Now that we're in the situation, we can work to find a way to better our neighborhood. It's fine to have a bar nearby, but doesn't mean we should settle for broken beer bottles, fighting, thuggery, and drug dealing in the vicinity of our homes!

I agree with all those who noted that the majority of the bar patrons are not from the immediate surrounding area. Full disclosure: I live around the corner from the Barge Inn. No, it is not particularly loud on a given weekend night. Yes, it is shady. Yes, patrons do leave unsightly trash everywhere, loiter on the street corner, and drink in the street.

We were in the neighborhood and looked at this building this afternoon. The first floor will be dedicated to 3 retail stores, and the 2nd - 5th floors will have residential units. The 2 bedroom/2 bathroom units were quite spacious and had large windows that let in lots of light. Parking will be available in the building. Looks like a great addition to the neighborhood!
