You might expect the menu at Oh' Brian's on the Green to be just as casual as its atmosphere—after all, the restaurant is surrounded by a golf course, and sports games regularly broadcast from its many flat-screen TVs. You'd be mistaken, however. Appetizers of oysters rockefeller and osso bucco marrow bones emerge from the kitchen shortly before an array of gourmet entrees such as gnocchi pomodoro, Hudson Valley duck breast, and Sterling Silver filet mignon. Of course, the chefs don't overlook the need for classic game-watching eats, as burgers, sliders, and mac 'n' cheese dishes populate the menu as well. Thursday through Saturday evenings, live music suffuses the space courtesy of local rock bands, acoustic musicians, and pianos dueling over which one is the grandest.

The artful chefs at Fratelli toss and serve classic Italian cuisine alongside generously topped brick-oven pizzas. Appetizers such as red or white mussels ($9.95) or stuffed mushrooms ($6.95) ready incisors to take on more substantial spoonfuls and slices. The expansive menu enflames widening pupils and stomachs with all-day entrees, including the veal spiedini—stuffed with salami and provolone and bathed in a white wine sauce ($16.95)—and the oven-baked capricciosa pizza—bedecked with italian ham, artichokes, and hot salami jockeying for space on a 12-inch disk of crisp thin crust ($14). Seafood selections such as zuppa di clams ($15.95) or shrimp parmigiana ($15.95) warrant bottles of imported and domestic beer ($3.50–$4), house wine ($5 per glass), and water that's as free as a pardoned jailbird.

Benvenuti Italian Specialties & Catering first opened in Bari, Italy before packing up for Garwood, New Jersey in the early 1900's. Chefs still carry on the traditions of the Old World, though, crafting classic Italian entrees and contemporary dishes. They draw from a vast menu that includes everything from more than 20 varieties of housemade ravioli to a chicken Benvenuti, which is sautéed with peppers, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, and capers. The kitchen also transports meals from its catering menu to luncheons, banquets, and other events throughout the area.

Cured meats hang above Benvenuti's glass deli cases, which teem with olives and rounds of fresh mozzarella. Meanwhile, pastas, bottles of olive oil, and other Italian imports line the main shop floor.

In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.

Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs, and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
