vb, i hate to show you this: (my rant on the south city grille) Bad Restaurant Experiences....

it's in the middle of page 3.

i might be willing to give it a try if that's where everyone decides.
well now, THAT certainly was an underwhelming review! I have NO idea where "Rochelle Park" is, and having no car, and after that sterling story, have no desire to find out! Besides, Mudbug is coming to New YORK! why would we bring her to Jersey for dinner or a drink? Am I missing something here? There are at least 500 wonderful places to eat and/or dine in New York at any price point you decide on.....

Which is exactly what I was thinking when I found myself in Applebee's a few weeks ago! The beer was cold though.

Mud, wish I could fly back to NYC & meet you all. Used to be the floats were blown up on 77th ST and CPW (Central Park West), as I mentioned - near the Museum.

The museum (if it's open) would make a great meeting place -- and Family outing - or Bethesda Fountain in Central Park. I always rely on Frommers for the best of anything & what's going on. If you have time, take a horse-drawn carriage ride thru the Park. Have a great trip.

'bug, you and i will work something out if all else fails.

if thanksgiving week is too difficult for everyone else, we could always do it sometime between now and christmas/hannukah/festivus, and just make it a holiday get together.

who'll bring the festivus pole?
Bucky, if you've been going to SCG every three weeks or so, then you had to be there at least once when I was there. I first went about 3 months after it opened with a client. I loved it. I started bringing all my clients there as a result. I always had the best table, regardless if I called ahead or not. My clients were always very generous tippers, I insisted. Anyway, I got friendly with the managment and the chef. Shortly after, they opened the Mountain Lakes place and then the Jersey City place. I've never been to either, I do hear good things about them.

There was a noticable decline in service about 2 years ago for about 6 months. My (ex) husband took his entire staff there for a christmas luncheon 2 years ago and was sorely disappointed. He actually wrote to the owners about the experience he had, and also cited all the wonderful experiences I'd had. Long story short, it took a while, but eventually someone got back to him with an offer of free dinner for two any evening. It was the right gesture to make.

I've changed my line of work so I don't dine with 'client's much any longer. I've been back to SCG only abut 4 times in the past year, instead of my usual 15-20 per year. I was pleased with the food and the service the last three times I'd been there. Most of the staff has changed, so no one really knew me. Still, the service was good.

Having said that, naturally, I'm open for any location as long as I can drive to it, and drive home again.

I mentioned NJ or NYC because it looks like mudbug may not be able to make it to a group visit, at all...family obligations.

Rochelle Park is right next to Paramus. If you've ever gone to the Garden State Plaza on NJ17, you've gone through Rochelle Park to get there.
