South Edison and their amazing food...
The whole time I've been in Jersey, I've been dying to make it to the small coastal fishing village of Montauk for some seafood. Just a simple batch of oysters and something wildly spirited to wash it down with. Of course, the search began online for where to chow and the #1 place that had the exact type of meal that I love (proper local ingredients peppered throughout, good names for dishes, mixology style drinks) was South Edison.
My tale of the meal I had there will be a post unto itself, but until I get a minute, let me just tease with an oyster. They were so plump, so meaty, so fresh and spectacular, I had to order more, more, more. I've not had anything even remotely this good in the oyster fam since my backroad Mexico days a few years back.
It's a trip worth taking, even if just for this one bite. But, trust me, at this restaurant, the whole menu must be devoured to do it up right.
