    The pictures are of where you enter, and the
    building in the other photo is the Gift shop.

    It is a National Historic Landmark,
    and certainly has alot of history surrounding
    it.

Margate City Restaurants

  • TRimer's Profile Photo

    by TRimer Written Aug 2, 2003

    A Zagat's "must try". Now in its ninth year, Tomatoes continues its impressive run as one of the Jersey Shore's most popular dining destinations. Awash with natural woods & metals and the light emanating from the large picture windows fronting the bay, chef/owner Carmen Rone and co-proprietor Karen Sherman have fashioned a restaurant experience that is a feast for both the eye and the palate. Many of the stylish decorative touches are Oriental in nature and prove the perfect complement to the breezy, innovative Pacific Rim/California cuisine. Revel in such delicious dishes as lobster tail and jumbo shrimp over corn salsa with lime beurre blanc, red snapper in an ancho chili crust, grilled New Zealand lamb chops with ratatouille, and black pepper-encrusted sirloin finished with red wine demi-glace. Tomatoes also features an extremely popular sushi bar and an impressive glass-enclosed, climate-controlled wine cellar that is home to some two thousand reasonably priced vintages. This beguiling eatery remains incredibly popular, so be sure to make your reservations well in advance.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite thing from Tomatoes was the Key Lime Pie martini. Made from vanila vodka, lime and pineapple juices, this concoction was delicious.

Margate City Warnings and Dangers

  • by jimboAC Written Aug 9, 2009

    You would be wise not to do business with Prudential Fox Roach. I did and got stuck with a house over a leaking underground oil tank. This outfit seems to have a soft spot for convicts. My seller was a convict; and you can read about my Pru-Fox realtor, Mark Arbeit, in The Washington Post archives for June 20 and 25, 1987.

    You would think a purportedly reputable outfit like Pru-Fox would do something to screen its sellers and "Sales Professionals." Well, think again. Use them at your own risk and hope you do not have to rely on them when the going gets tough.
