Latour in Ridgewood.

Thanks, will be on my list since it’s the next town over from me.

I second Latour. The dover sole is a great dish that the chef used to make for Jackie O when he worked at the brown derby in NYC.

Love Latour, my family has been going there for years.

Lorena's in Maplewood. A bit further than some of these suggestions but if you didn't want to drive it's near a train station

Chez Catherine in Westfield. Had my bday dinner there a few years ago, completely worth it. It is always rated one of the best restaurants in New Jersey.

Rutherford's romantic Cafe Matisse.

Google shows them as temporarily closed.

Through mid Jan. But don't go there anyway. I would charitably describe it as fancy cruise food.

Yeah I've never been more disappointed in a restaurant meal. It was hotel bar food at best.


snarfydog t1_j253j86 wrote

Well, hotel bar food is usually just bland. I was really impressed with the desire to shove as many ingredients as possible on one plate, topped with tons of sweet sauces. And the Holiday Inn-grade wine glasses for an "upscale byo" restaurant were just...

As you can tell by the comments, you will either love or hate this place.

We've gone to Latour several time for our date nights. It's ways been a pleasant evening there and it's very close by too for us. Next town over as well 🙂 enjoy yourselves!!

Restaurant Serenade in Chatham

Edit: just saw you said Bergen County. This is Morris County, but not terribly far.

Sophie’s Bistro in Somerset is very nice. Went there for Valentine’s Day last year and we’ve been wanting to go back

Madeline's Petite Paris in Northvale. Family run, great emphasis on quality products. Food A+, ambiance is B+, cost, expensive but you won't feel ripped off. (Fair prices given what you're getting.)

Ask for François when making your reservation and tell him that it's a special occasion.

Brasserie Memere in Closter!

Bistro d’Azur in South Orange is a little longer of a drive from Bergen County, but is BYO and one of the best restaurants in the state, in my opinion.

Not sure if Cafe Panache in Ramsey is French French, but it’s also supposed to be one of the top restaurants in the state.

NYC is near Bergen Co. Go to Frenchette in Tribeca
