Easy access to Route 280, the Garden State Parkway and Routes 24 and 78 make north, south and westbound commutes easy.
For a girl’s night, or any other excuse for a party, try the Martini Bistro & Bar in town, Joe’s American at the Mall or The Retreat Lounge at the Hilton or Moonshine Modern Supper Club. A great new hangout is the Boxcar Bar & Grill in the Short Hills train station.
For date night you can go downtown to Basilico, Cafe Monet, Cara Mia or Sakura sushi, like many New Jersey restaurants they’re BYOB. (In New Jersey, there’s a max of one full liquor licensed-restaurant for every 3,000 residents â€“ there are even some dry towns!)
There are lots of fun, casual spots too. Tinga Taqueria is always busy, Benihana continues to put on a show and Charlie Brown’s is an old favorite. Cafe Luna is small and cozy. Garage is a fun family spot for burgers, Millburn Deli is famous for their Gobbler!
You’ll find an amazing selection of wine plus beer, liquor and gourmet foods at the Wine Library on Millburn Avenue where Short Hills borders Springfield.
