Brickwall's friendly ambiance livens up the final block of Cookman Avenue in Asbury Park, revitalizing a once-forgotten neighborhood with warming food and local events. An industrial-style interior sets the stage for an eclectic menu of updated homestyle plates, sporting appetizers such as cajun seared shrimp with parmesan grits ($12) and savory main courses such as a dry-rub half-rack of ribs ($15). More herbaceous hankerings can be answered with earthy eats such as potato, pesto, and parmesan fusilli ($14). Satisfy a sweet tooth with a single dessert of blueberry cobbler, or swaddle a whole mouth's worth with a half-dozen post-dinner dishes (desserts are $3 each, or $15 for six). The tavern's extensive drink selection includes ample offerings of wine, beer, and creative cocktails to wet the whistles of patrons lacking their own camel-like water supply.

Having spent many years in the dance and fitness industries, Vanessa Berry knew precisely what to look for in her staff members when she opened Kick Dance Studios more than 10 years ago. Today, staffers include those who have trained at distinguished organizations including the School of American Ballet, Joffrey Ballet School, and Broadway Dance Center.

But as proud as she is of her team, Berry is doubly so of her students, including her award-winning dance team. Her facility's two studios constantly bustle with the moves and grooves of highly organized dance classes, which include ballet, jazz, tap, hip-hop, contemporary, musical theater, and acrobatics.

In the kitchen of The Chubby Pickle, cooks whip up housemade tartar sauce for beer-battered fish ‘n’ chips and prepare Angus short rib patties to serve between brioche buns. As they consume truffled mac ‘n' cheese bites, patrons can cheer on athletes in football games or pay-per-view UFC fights shown on high-definition TVs mounted on the pickle-green walls. Behind the full bar, staff members fill pint glasses with domestic and imported brews and shake up cocktails against a musical backdrop of karaoke or live music. On mild evenings, the outdoor patio—which has its own set of flat-screen TVs—plays host to themed events, parties, and surprise tax audits.
