A visit to Princeton, NJ!

Recently, we went to Princeton for the day to visit our friends Livia and George.

It was the perfect occasion for me to see the campus as I heard so much about it. It was beautiful with this spectacular architecture, its gardens and so much green (well, in figurative too).

For lunch, Livia and George proposed to eat in one of their favorite places, apart from the main Street.

We did not go to the restaurant, Blue Point Grill, but to the store on the left, Nassau Street Seafood Produce and Co, where they had an impressive selection of seafood, from lobster, crab, clam and all sorts of fresh fish that can be cleaned to order. They also have caviar!

Their fish tank with all these big lobsters was pretty impressive!

There, they offer a menu going from soups, salads, sandwiches...and you can even see them preparing it, in the small kitchen behind the counter.

Jodi ordered a salad with fresh tuna.

The sauce was Caesar dressing. It was good, not overdressed and the fish (lots of it) tasted fresh. The only regret is that it was cooked all the way through and not pan seared with a red center. 

On my side, I ordered the lobster bisque.

I was surprised to see them take an already prepared and packaged soup and serve it. They made it though and it was pretty good with little chunks of lobster in it! 

Then, I decided to try their fish and chips.

I could observe them preparing it and fry it. Made me hungrier! It was good: fresh fish well cooked, light and crispy batter that was not greasy. The fries that came with it were perfect too. 

Definitely a good choice off the Main Street!

I ordered a cold macchiato that looked fantastic with the cream on top!

Jodi ordered an iced mint lemonade that was just ok, but really refreshing considering how hot it was outside!

This store is known because it won Cupcake Wars! We decided to share a red velvet.

It was delicious: moist and tasty cake, fantastic cream cheese icing that was not too sweet.

Needless to say that the walk around Princeton was necessary to digest all this good food! We definitely had a great time and are looking forward to go back to try some other fantastic food!

Enjoy (I did)!
