TJ's on the Avenue
TJ's on the Avenue might have more than 25 years of history behind it, but everything on the menu barely has any history at all. That's because it's all so fresh, from the homemade pastas, breads, and sauces to the straight-from-the-oven pizzas and calzones. Of course, being a family-owned Italian restaurant, TJ's has its fair share of specialty dishes, too. Here are a few to consider:
- Chicken madison: A TJ's original, this dish features lightly breaded chicken breast sautéed with fresh mushrooms and scallions, and topped with a light cheddar-provolone cheese sauce that has just a hint of white wine.
- Penne provencale: For this dish, chefs sauté peppers, mushrooms, onions, and garlic together, simmer them in a basil white wine marinara, and then serve the finished product over penne.
- Taste of TJ's: If everything sounds so good that you can't decide, opt for this selection, which includes generous portions of TJ's most-popular dishes—chicken parmigiana, lasagna, and fettucine alfredo.
