**NJ Monthly has named Cellar 335 one of the state’s top 25 restaurants. Per the magazine, “Cellar 335 is much more than a hipster boite. Cocktails like the smoky/tangy Fightin’ Five, served in a skull mug, taste even better than they look. And virtually every dish on the menu is both a hoot and a delight, from hot mini cheddar corn muffins topped with a melting pat of togarashi-spiced butter to tamarind-sauced Duroc pork ribs topped with toasted coconut.” Also on the list are Maritime Parc, Cucharamama (Hoboken), and Ryan DePersio’s Fascino (Montclair). —NJ Monthly
