Like, maybe, Restaurant Serenade?
The atmosphere is sophisticated but not stuffy and inviting for cocktails or dinner at the bar.
The mood in Serenade is much like its name: romantic, relaxing, and worthy of a date for any occasion.
The food, the atmosphere, the service . It all the traces back to one thing: the chef.
Chef James Laird built his steady but popular restaurant on his interest in the culinary arts. As a graduate from the Culinary Institute of America, James left the US to increase his talent and experience in Europe, under the careful eyes of renowned chefs Georges Blanc and Alain Pic. And increase he did.
As a kitchen official of many different restaurants including Lespinasse, The River Cafй, and Aureole, he continued to fine-tune his talent, finally moving on to a sous-chef position at the highly acclaimed Ryland Inn in New Jersey. He’s left traces of his amazing talent wherever he’s been, From “Extraordinary” ratings (an equivalent of four stars) to descriptions of “soft and subtle love songs” (talking about his divine cuisine of course!). But he’s found his happiness in Serenade, a restaurant “among the Garden State’s most rewarding dining destinations.”
