Located at the mouth of the Delaware and Raritan Canal in the historic Village of Kingston – equidistant from New York and Philadelphia – Eno Terra is the central meeting place for lovers of good food and exceptional wine. Eno Terra is founded on the principle of regionalism, drawing from local renewable resources, supporting local purchasing, and local investing. Eno Terra, in line with the philosophy: “Eat Local, Drink Global,” brings together the best of local and regional markets and pairs cuisine with the best wines from around the world. Eno Terra is dedicated to savoring and persevering time, tradition and the human senses, Eno Terra was built upon the original timbers of the nineteenth century general store Fisk Grocery. The building is home to an 1100 square-foot restored two-story Bar and Wine cellar featuring original timbers with Mortise and Tenon joints and tree pin nails. The building is also decorated by various Kingston area artists.
This review is long overdue. While living in Princeton, I often enjoyed dining at Eno Terra with family and friends. Although it's located on Rt. 27 in Kingston, the restaurant borders Princeton, and, in my opinion, is the finest in the area. The food is fresh, local with great attention to detail and fine ingredients. In many respects, it reminds me of the small restaurants one would encounter while travelling through Italy where simple fare is fresh and full of flavor. Recently, our party had lunch there and enjoyed the zitoni, pan seared octopus and the Flat Iron steak with crispy potatoes. Eno Terra also offers a daily "Pranzo a Presto" three course luncheon which changes daily for $22. For the amount and quality of food, the price can't be beat! The rustic touches indoors and outside add to the lovely ambiance. The servers are always helpful and efficient. I highly recommend this restaurant and can't wait to return!

This place has an edge when you consider that there isn't much else around besides fast food. The food is good, but portions are small. If you have a small stomach, then look no further. Otherwise,chew slowly and savor every morsel.

I stopped in for a business lunch. Two ordered hibachi and two had sushi rolls. Food was good along with the service.

WOW!!! We went to NY for two days and desperately wanted "real" Italian. We didn't find it there, so I searched for somewhere we could stop at on our way home to Maryland. It was GREAT! I had the tricolor pasta which had eggplant, "pink" sauce, and roasted red peppers. It was AMAZING!! Seriously one of the BEST pasta dishes I have ever had. The fresh mozzarella on the top was SO GOOD. I couldn't believe how good it was. My husband had the ziti and a side of the meatballs. He loved them both (he won't stop raving about the meatballs!). The servings were huge and there was so much sauce (which is so important!). We also had the garlic knots. On top of that, everyone was so friendly and the place was beautiful inside. I wish we had Italian like this in Maryland! Two thumbs up! Seriously - stop here!! (And as a vegetarian, I had a lot of variety to choose from.) :)

Great hot chocolate, coffee and frappucinos. The staff will custom make your 'standard' beverages if you like them made differently. Well worth the extra price.

Stopped in early one Saturday morning to grab bagels and coffee for the four of us traveling.
Bagels were fresh! We each tried a different kind. Provided small container of cream cheese.
Plenty of self-serve coffee. Soft drinks are available as well. I noticed they also served several Boars Head meats and cheeses.

Fresh & simply prepared seafood served in a casual atmosphere with a gorgeous patio for warm weather dining.
It has been a few months since we visited Blue Point Grill ( we frequently purchase take out cooked shrimp at its adjoining Nassau Seafood) and once again had a very good experience. For entrees we had the flounder and fried shrimp; both were excellent and the portion sizes good. Our server (and her associates) was very attentive (she kept the iced tea coming for me...thanks). Some might consider it a little 'pricey' but for the overall quality of the food and service; it is worth it.

Friendly owners, quick service, as the workers are quite busy but efficient. Saturday mornings are busiest. It's kept clean and good to hold conversations I would say an above average Dunkin Donut store.

After seeing this bagel shop on Diners, Drive-in and Dives, we decided to give it a try. It is over 20 miles from our house but after looking at their menu and seeing the show, it seemed like it would be worth it. NOT! First of all, I came for the Spinach bagels listed on their website. They were not out of them, but it appears that they don't even make them anymore as there was no bin for them. Speaking of the bins, we were there around 10:30 am and they were mostly low/empty. What happened to the "we make thousands of bagels everyday and replenish them during the day" as stated on the show??? When did they plan to replenish the Asiago bagels which was empty???? We got the last two veggie and they had very little taste and just a hint of veggies! Since we drove a distance, we also bought two sourdough.
Again, very little taste.
I've always wondered if Guy Fieri is blowing smoke about some of the places he visits?
After going here, I now know it!
If this is the #1 restaurant in Plainsboro, I feel sorry for those of you who live there.

Confectionately Yours is family owned and started out as a homemade ice cream and chocolates place about a half mile up the road and moved to a larger storefront in the Franklin Park Town Square. There's a lot of tables and booths but they fill up fast as we locals love this place for a good meal or just for dessert. Their burgers are juicy, go for their homemade ice cream, shakes and sundaes. There are about 20+ flavors which change from time to time.
