For private events, they go above and beyond by recreating dishes from the hosts' family recipes. On Thursdays and Fridays, the tunes of live entertainment permeate the dining room.
Chef John Talbot delivers mouthwatering fare from the land and the sea to rest on Creed's elegant white tablecloths. Yellowfin tuna drizzled with ponzu sauce ($29) and chimichurri-topped New Zealand king salmon ($28) headline a list of fresh charcoal-grilled fish. Manager and sommelier Josef Plattner is often on hand to offer suggestions for which wine to pair with a New York strip steak ($38) or to mingle with a mustard-herb-crusted rack of lamb ($36). Though the menu favors meat, there are also a number of tasty vegetarian options, including the house-made vegetarian ravioli, stuffed with crimini mushrooms and ricotta cheese, served with fried spinach and a gazpacho coulis ($18). With its soft cream-hued walls and tasteful décor, Creed's is an ideal location for romantic get-togethers or business meetings with bands of ravenous highwaymen.

In 1772, soldier, scholar, and businessman Andrew McMinn saw the need for a way station for travelers, so he opened his home to those with coin. The building served as a base for General Francis Murray during the Revolutionary War, and has passed through the hands of generations of owners, ultimately taking on the name The Temperance House. Whatever its title or whoever its proprietors are, the location has provided a place to meet, eat, and plot against the British throughout its 200-year lifespan. The current managing couple, Carlene and Pasquale Deon, enhances the building's rustic charm with fully restored décor to preserve the historically rich interior. Their chefs craft menus that blend culinary styles from France, Asia, and Italy into an international menu of fine eats that includes everything from kimchi rolls to gnocchi with buffalo mozzarella. :m]]
To understand what makes Nicole's Ten Restaurant special, the numbers give a good starting point: * More than 100: how many beers (many of which are local) kept on bottle and draft. * 30 plus: how many wines poured by the glass. * 2013: the year its lobster mac and cheese won "Best Mac and Cheese in New Jersey" in the New Jersey Food & Wine Festival.
Stats aside, all one really needs to understand the restaurant's appeal is to enter its space, where soft music plays and candlelight flickers off of flowing drapes. In many ways, Nicole's Ten Restaurant resembles an art gallery, just one where you're allowed to eat everything on display.
