When I'm home in Jersey for the holidays I make sure to go to some of my favorite restaurants. On a dreary day while home my Mom and I decided to head over to Princeton to casual eatery, Metro North, and took a seat at the bar.
Since we usually eat one large meal a day when I'm home, we went all out.For appetizers I started with a small Caesar salad, and my Mom ordered the clams casino. Both were great, the salad was the perfect size & I loved the amount of cheese on top, and the clams casino had great flavors from the peppers & onions.
As our entrees I ordered a simple cheddar cheeseburger with parmesan truffle fries, while my Mom tried out the
My cheddar cheeseburger was yummy, & the parmesan truffle fries were to die for, they were crisp and perfectly seasoned.
Lastly, we shared creme brûlée for dessert- it was okay, not the best I've had, but the presentation looked great. I wish we had ordered either the Oreo cheesecake or Tartufo, but oh well, there's always next time. I also ordered an Irish Kiss martini featuring vodka & Bailey's. It tasted great, & was a perfect warm up for the gross weather outside, but the presentation piece was kind of boring.
If you're in the Princeton area and are looking for a cozy restaurant to catch a bite to eat at, I highly recommend stopping by Metro North!
