Adaggio: A prix fixe delight
The one night I spent here with my parents eating the prix-fixe meal at this restaurant was amazing. It's something like a six course meal with top notch food that makes my mouth water when I think about it. The atmosphere is tres classy in the back room where waiters in bowties serve you your meal.
The front room is a different decor, slightly more laid back, and the menu is different as well. The food, though, is just as good, and for those not looking to gorge themselves on fod, this is the way to go.
Favorite Dish: The best dish I had here was pheasant, but it was a special and it's probably very seasonal. Anything's good, really.
Monster Sushi: Sushi super-sized
This sushi house is a chain that I know also has has restaurants in New York City. It's decent sushi, but the bites are a little too big for my tastes. Sashimi is not the way to go, the pieces are too big and you really don't get to taste and feel the texture of the fish you're eating. The rolls, though, can be really good. They're huge and delicious all around.
La Pastaria: Simple, to the point pasta.
Nothing too fancy at this local pasta joint. It's got a simple trattoria feel with plates to match the atmosphere. Portions are huge, so get ready to take home a doggy bag. The hostess is great, get her talking and you can hear her complaints for the night. Don't forget it's BYOB!
Favorite Dish: The sylvia salad is a must -- arugula, strawberries, blueberries, blue cheese, and an amazing strawberry dressing.
Brix 67: Sushi with sophistication
Brix 67 in my opinion is the best restaurant in Summit, it has a wonderfull atmosphere and great service. The restaurant has a diverse menu describing its self as ?World cuisine and sushi?. As well as outside seating it consists two levels of tables, booths down one side and a large round table with what looks like a shower curtain which can be pulled round to give the shyest of customers some privacy. But by far the best thing about it, as it should be, is the food and wine list.
Favorite Dish: My favorate dish was the lobster potsticker appetizer.
La Pastaria and Fiorino: Pasta that is truly mouth-watering.
Each of these eateries in downtown Summit offers a tremendous variety of Italian specialties, but among the best are the homemade pastas. At La Pastaria on Springfield Avenue, try anything with seafood or the mushroom ravioli. The restaurant is loud and the service can be a bit snooty, but it's worth it. If you like an original starter, begin with a La Pastaria salad with the house Balsamic. Oh, yeah.
At Fiorino on Maple Street, I would recommend the gorgonzola pasta. It sounds like it's too much cheese, but it's not. Fabulous. Start with the antipasto and accompany your meal with a nice glass of chardonnay. You won't regret it.
Favorite Dish: Any pasta on the menu, including whatever the day's special is.
Adagios: wonderful courses, wonderful service
3 or 4 course dinners, delicious, plenty to choose from. atmosphere is wonderfully romantic, service was very, very good.
Summit Diner: Traditional little Diner
The Summit Diner is a traditional American establishment. Quite small, it has about 10 booths and 20 stools round the counter.
Favorite Dish: Does the best breakfasts in town - worth a visit.
