From Our Editors
They say you can't be all things to all people, but that apparently hasn't stopped Red Stone Tavern from trying. For starters, there's the decor: an aesthetic compromise that incorporates rustic building materials with a sleekness that feels decidedly modern. A walk through the restaurant reveals an expansive dining room with high ceilings and plenty of space, but it's partitioned in such a way as to make every meal an intimate experience.
Above all, however, people from all corners of Jersey flock to Red Stone Tavern for the food. Equal parts upscale and casual, the menu features hearty dishes of pasta and seafood alongside handmade pizzas topped with arugula, pesto, and balsamic glaze. Despite all this diversity, many guests stick to the grilled offerings. It's hard to blame them, as the choices include a 12-ounce sirloin steak, a zesty lime chicken breast, and a rack of St. Louis ribs signed by the chef in tangy barbecue sauce.
