Have not reviewed the Tewksbury… but, like many others, it is on my “to do” list.

Best regards,

By the way, here’s a link to a review from NJ Monthly, http://njmonthly.com/restaurantreviews/tewksbury-inn.html, which gave it pretty good marks.

I just found your site and I must say… wow. Your critiquing expertise and use of colorful word descriptive is beyond reproach. I must say you have given me and my foodie dining partner pause about the new Avero. Given that it is less than 3 miles from Teresa’s, the preeminent ML Italian bistro that offers one the best pasta Bolognese’s this side of Silver Spring MD’s 8407 Kitchen Bar (the best pasta Bolognese in the United States of Ameica), I will await spending my hard earned restaurant allowance for the current time being.

Thank you for being there ahead of us!

Hi, great blog. I was wondering if you know where Chef Michael Metzner (formerly of Giovanni’s Bistro in Berkeley Heights, NJ and Nicholas before that) is going next. Just recieved an email from Giovanni’s stating that he has left and the restaurant is closed for the time being. Many thanks,
