Don’t be fooled by the beers on tap, the happy hour specials, or the games being played on big screen televisions—Corner Table at Whole Foods Market - Millburn-Union is not an average sports bar. Characteristically committed to ethical eating, the taproom presides over a selection of local craft beers and a menu of classic tavern fare made from locally sourced ingredients. The chefs whet appetites with battered avocado fries, accompanied by chipotle-ranch dressing, and locally-produced Chestnut Valley salumi served with a pretzel baguette. On the heartier side of the spread are prosciutto and fennel flatbreads, a pulled-pork sandwich drenched in honey-jalapeño barbecue sauce.
At Cafe Caffe Gourmet, chefs put an American spin on a number of culinary genres to create diner-style entrees for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Named after U.S. cities and states, burgers rise like edible skyscrapers to accommodate 8-ounce Angus patties and toppings such as crumbled blue cheese, garlic aoli, or caramelized onions. Alongside the marble-and-wood coffee bar, guests can sip espresso drinks and munch classic griddle cakes and eggs. The restaurant touts its dinner buffet, an all-you-can-eat feast open throughout the day and stationed prominently in the cheerful yellow dining room. A row of sconces add a warm ambiance to the restaurant, illuminating menus and love letters spelled out in fettuccine.
Un, deux, trois. Such is the simplicity of Caf? Monet?s menu, whose three-part, mix-and-match structure is the brainchild of Egyptian-born chef Wes Sawi. The child of a diplomat, Sawi spent his youth traveling the world before finding his passion in food. He studied at the New York Restaurant School and trained at notable kitchens in Paris and Lyon, all of which contribute to the global touches on his predominantly French creations.
On the dinner menu, plates under the ?un? and ?deux? sections are served in appetizer-sized portions, while the ?trois? offerings constitute full entrees. To start, a Moroccan tuile adorns mounds of crabmeat a la mango, and duck confit comes paired with wild-mushroom strudel, a creation that the New York Times hailed as ?a small masterpiece of a dish.? Merlot-braised beef short ribs and an onion ring sit atop a mint-fava-bean-potato puree, and mint essence flavors rack of lamb and a Proven?al?style vegetable tian. In addition to the egg dishes, sandwiches, and salads that populate the lunch menu, the cafe runs a patisserie that serves baked goods and gourmet coffee throughout the morning and afternoon.
Large canvases sporting colorful still-life paintings of fruit adorn Caf? Monet?s warm, neutral-colored walls, which reach down to a bare wooden floor in the cozy, 50-seat dining room. Granite tabletops separate chairs from leather banquettes, where diners sit and uncork wine they brought from home. Outside, red umbrellas shield tables as guests sip coffee and take advantage of complimentary WiFi.
Amid a friendly Old-World market atmosphere, the butchers of Pulaski Meat Products smoke, slice, and link an array of Eastern European meats onsite. Hoops of Kraiana kielbasa ($4.19/lb.) spin on dinner tables or the turntables of experimental DJs, and black forest ham ($6.29/lb.) fills sandwiches with its savory, salty flavor. Frankfurters ($4.79/lb.) await the grill or frying pan, and baby back ribs ($6.59/lb.) come infused with the taste of the smokehouse. Watched over by an emblem of Poland's crowned eagle, the shop's knowledgeable employees hand out samples and help customers understand the subtle differences between Ukrainian and Hungarian kielbasa and why bologna shouldn’t be used as a pillow.
