We've got so many amazing little mom-and-pop restaurants all around us it can be hard to know where to start.

We've got places like Beacon 70, Rosies, B2 Bistro, and Frankies that it's hard to believe people still eat at chains in Jersey!

I mean yes, chains are generally quick in and out spots and aren't overly expensive, but there are just so many better unique options.

For example, you could check out Jersey's best 'hidden gem' of a restaurant.

It's a place that's so extremely easy to overlook due to the fact that it's tucked into a strip mall in Belford New Jersey.

This spot is run by a couple, both of whom are chefs, and it specializes in high-end American Fare.

It's a place that also specializes in homemade pasta, which is a must if you want to be considered one of the best-hidden gems in the state!
