Hey Surfer, no problem - I would NEVER try to convince you that A.C. is like L.V! As for your challenge to name 1 good Bergen Cty. restaurant to your 5 in NYC... Believe me, I have nothing against the NYC restaurants, eat there fairly regularly when we go to theatre, Philharmonic, etc. - I think I've just had more than my share of Jersey-bashing (and that's saying a lot for this born and raised Chicago girl!!!)

OK, Margot, I'll try to love NJ too, but you'll never get me into those little emoticons. Ooooooh, they make my skin crawl just looking at the creepy little dudes.

Alright kids, cut it out before I lock you up! No really, I live in Jersey but there's no beating the city in terms of atmosphere, quality, etc.

That said, with 30 people going to this dinner, it seems like a better plan to just stay in Bergen County. This large a group would be too hectic to maneuver too far away.

Oh my gawd, the emoticons ate Lola! all except her name. As I was saying ... look out, Marlin, watch those emoticons ... Marlin? gt; (that's a smiley face for all you traditionalists).

Stony Hill Inn Hackensack...have not been there in years, but I remember it being a very "fancy" food was good. Nice place for special occasion, but would not be my first choice.

Saddle River Inn... was there 2 years ago...I thought it was just "OK" a place meant for an older crowd. I know everyone loves this restaurant but I thought it needed a face lift and food was very old school...heavy sauces...not my cup of tea.

Radicchio in Ridgewood...nice atmosphere, smaller, BYO...liquor store right across the street.
Zarole in Ridgewood...again smaller, great food, I think also BYO.

I have heard Cafe Matisse in Rutherfood is absolutly FABULOUS

'Restaurant X' in Garrison NY (right over border...about 25 min from Ridgewood) is WONDERFUL...a great restaurant for special occasion. Great decor and yummy food. Great wine too.

Hope this helps...
Brenda

Check out northjerseylcom, the website for the Bergen Record newspaper. which is the local daily. It archives reviews for North Jersey restaurants and its reviewers are quite astute. The New York Times Jersey section also reviews restaurants.

From my personal experience, Stony Hill Inn will give you a conventionally upscale experience. This is a pretty place and has become a premiere site for wedding receptions. Latour in Ridgewood is excellent-- we dined there a couple of weeks ago with a friend who really wanted to go to Paris for her birthday -- but it could be a bit of a tight fit for 30 guests. You might want to consider My Cup of Tea, believe it or not in a small strip mall dominated by an A&P in Allendale. Food is Asian/French fusion and exquisite. It's a little bit larger than Latour and the layout could be more flexible. It is another one of Jersey's best BYOB's.
