  • Restaurant Review: Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten
    Avery a battle tested veteran of the Gordon Ramsay TV series Hell s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares commands a large modern kitchen From it the Monmouth County native brings forth a local seasonal menu You wouldn t see asparagus corn or tomatoes in Munich the 34 year old chef told me in June But we re not in Munich We re a beer garden by the Shore Charred stalks of local asparagus were a highlight of an unforgettable roast chicken platter 17 Half an organic Bell and Evans bird marinated in brine flavored with maple syrup and bourbon was roasted until its skin was divinely crisp and flavorful The rosemary and citrus infused meat was juicy even better dragged through a swirl of puliszka a coarse but creamy Hungarian polenta Sherry soaked cippolini onions caramelized in chicken fat provided the perfect counterpoint Avery lets the kitchen make extra trays of the sweet onions because they re the staff s favorite snack The maple bourbon brine is also used to prep turkey breasts before they re roasted sliced and piled on thick country bread with sauerkraut and melted Emmentaler in open faced Reubens oozing rivulets of terrific house made Russian dressing 13 Easier to eat by hand were the coarsely grated well browned potato pancakes With a dab of sour cream and a spoonful of applesauce each bite was hot cool salty and sweet Another superb finger food was the blumenkohl 9 turmeric brined cauliflower florets that are panko crusted fried and served with a piquant lemon caper dip A petite wheel of baked Camembert 14 was similarly entrancing the hot cheese oozing onto lingonberry jam and rosemary toasted walnuts Wiener schnitzel 18 was classic made from house butchered veal loin pounded thin covered in breadcrumbs and pan fried A squeeze of fresh lemon was all it needed to attain crisp salty tender perfection German beer gardens at their best are masters of wurst Festhalle upholds a high standard even though the sausages are not made in house Veal and pork belly weisswurst display subtle flavors of lemon and garlic The skin on the pork and beef frankfurter pops with a satisfying snap that releases intensely smoky flavors The milder bratwurst made of pork plays well with lighter bodied beers Giant pretzels are flown in par baked from Germany and finished to order Mine arrived hot with a mahogany crust dotted with large crystals of crunchy salt Each piece twisted off with a satisfying tug was enhanced with a dip in a mixture of Bavarian sweet and hot mustards or in thick spicy Liptauer cheese sauce Portions are relatively large and easy to share Beer hall eating is even with entrées more like tapas eating than sitting down to a regular three course meal Groups order beers and a few dishes at a time then a few more beers and a few more dishes That style of dining can put a lot of pressure on waitstaff who have to weave through

  • Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen
    floor spaces the Oyster Wine Bar and the Vail Bar Both opened in early October and share the same casual seafood centric Italian influenced menu Reservations are accepted but not required As you approach Vail s patrician retreat with its Versailles like reflecting pool you expect opulence but that s not in the game plan You enter from a side door The spare rather austere Oyster Wine Bar unfolds on your right opposite the grand marble staircase in the high ceilinged space that Vail envisioned as his art gallery If you walk past the staircase and hang a left you enter JHBK s social sweet spot the Vail Bar Its beautifully restored marble fireplace and white oak paneling mesh seamlessly with a handsome new wood bar You can dine at the bar or at cocktail tables suitable for two or three people by the floor to ceiling windows A giant flat screen showing sports brings the room up to date without breaking the mood of well heeled bonhomie A button tufted red leather couch with matching armchairs strikes a jovial note which a throw pillow reinforces with the message Be Nice Or Leave Cannon patterned the menu after that of Marc Vetri s Philadelphia flagship Vetri Choose from any category raw bar crudo salumi cheese all U S Jersey coming appetizers entrées desserts Everything including cocktails and wines by the glass is listed on an iPad Mini handed to each person The best thing about these devices is the home page photo taken in 1955 by the famed photographer Garry Winogrand of Cannon s father John a trusts and estates fiduciary in a tiger striped booth at El Morocco with his friend Mercedes Herrera Cannon defends the iPads as saving molto trees because the menu changes often But there s no way to tell which menu lunch or dinner is on the device until you order something and discover you ve got the wrong menu That happened a couple times Add a couple of low battery warnings a graphic designer s white stripe on the screen that obscures some of the print and the need to flip through scads of screens when servers fail to show you how to get back to the category page and Cannon s contention that response has been 100 percent positive may be myopic I m no luddite By press time I was starting to get used to the damn devices It s early yet Until early December desserts were limited and being made off site because the pastry kitchen was still under construction Apple pie thin sliced biscotti and chocolate hazelnut torte were nonetheless stellar Cannon is forthright that an enterprise with this many facets will take time to reach cruising altitude Several dishes sound exciting but are just good which in this setting isn t good enough That includes ho hum Sicilian style roast chicken tough skinned lamb sausage and the Ralston kale salad with overassertive mustard vinaigrette Thankfully many things were right
