Love Four Seasons! Called for take out the other night, and the owner gave me tips on how to save money on my order. Fried eggplant chips were delicious.

Tapastry is our favorite! We also love Fin, Ahh Pizz, Eagans for burgers, Bamboo in upper Montclair for sushi and Jackies Grillette for the best sandwiches. Tinga on Valley road is also in our top 5! Great food in Montclair!

I see that Saveur Creole is on the list. I was looking forward to a romantic night out there with a gift card I won, but I never received it. :-(
