"Where to eat now in N.J.:
The 10 hottest restaurants for May"
by Bill Bodkin from NJ.com
James on Main opened its doors on March 25. The concept of the new eatery is simple: New American dinners and brunches using a wood fire grill and locally sourced seasonal ingredients. The brunch menu is served Thursday-Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and sports health-conscious items such as multi-grain pancakes, a baby kale and wheat-berry salad, and a wood-grilled chipotle chicken and quinoa wrap. There's also options such as the Hackettstown hanger steak and eggs, the Main Street Monte Cristo and wood grilled burgers, so there's a nice balance of healthy options and comfort food. The dinner menu, served Tuesday-Sunday at 5 p.m., has casual fare such as the Catskill Mountain smoked salmon baguette and nachos (which can be topped with barbecue pulled pork or bison chili) and unique entrees such as a Berkshire hog chop, Vienna schnitzel, and wood-grilled wild American shrimp. You can end things on a sweet note with crispy apricot doughnuts or a citrus trifle.
