C.J. Reycraft and Julianne Hodges didn't cross paths until 2011, but their meeting was destined long before that. Julianne grew up in the South of France, later going off to work in kitchens in Israel and studying at the French Culinary Institute in New York City. C.J. studied there as well, after falling in love with an early job as a line cook. But it wasn't until they were both hired at Chez Catherine in Westfield that they first met, and there learned the fine art of crafting award-winning French cuisine.
So when they had the opportunity to open their own restaurant, Amuse, it was to be a love letter to the French cuisine that brought them together. The menu features modern versions of classic French food, including escargot sprinkled with apples and bacon, and duck breast with a red-beet purée. Local ingredients are used throughout, including in desserts such as a chocolate-caramel tart the New Jersey Star-Ledger called "nothing but perfection." There's also brunch on the weekends and wine lockers where regular visitors can hang pictures torn from Dreamy Sommeliers magazine.
