Fancy sort of place. Veal French was good. Light tasting with the nuances you would expect In A well prepared dish. Servers were attentive but not bothersome. Would go back.

This is the only finer dining restaurant, not a chain, in the area. Selection is good and the food quality varies, sometimes very good and other time just ok. BYOB which I don't care for since I am not a wine drinker.

B & B usually stands for a Bed & Breakfast. As indicated in a previous response, this restaurant is in a strip mall called Heritage Plaza in Milltown, NJ and has nothing to do with a Bed & Breakfast.
