The Circle Restaurant - Newton, NJ

Recommended Posts

We enjoyed an outstanding 6 course tasting menu at NJ Monthly Top 30 restaurant, The Circle.
It was our first, and certainly not last time, at this charming little restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant. The service and food was impeccable. It was worth the 1 hour trip through dark long and winding country roads. Everything was bursting with flavor. They used freshly foraged mushrooms in their incredible mushroom bisque. I like the fact that the chef does not use conventional preparations with his dishes. For example, most chefs would prepare their duck dishes with a sweet compote or jam. This chef prepared his perfectly cooked duck in a savory spiced broth that contained cardamom and cinnamon. The perfectly cooked scallops included carrots prepared several ways (smoked, pickled, pesto, etc.). They were very nice to swap out raw oysters (which we do not like) with a delicious beet salad. We also enjoyed a flourless chocolate cake with raspberry jam and espresso ice cream for dessert. It all went great with an excellent 2013 Napa cabernet sauvignon.
