The Frog and the Peach in New Brunswick was honored by The Garden State Culinary Arts Awards on May 7 with the prize for “Best Restaurant in New Jersey.”

Modeled after the James Beard awards, these are state’s first juried food awards. Nominations were sought from the public, and then the GSCAA executive committee, consisting of food writers around the state, named ten nominees in 13 categories.

The Frog and The Peach has been one of New Jersey’s top restaurants since 1983. Bruce Lefebvre, executive chef since 2000, bought the restaurant in 2012. Lefebvre was trained at The Culinary Institute of America and is lauded for his modern take on American cuisine. He also shares a passion for local New Jersey products and fish.

The Frog and The Peach isn’t just a delicious dining destination; it’s also a great spot for meetings or events. From the intimate Wine Room to the upstairs that feels tucked away from the main dining room to the lush oasis-style room, The Frog and The Peach has a variety of spaces for your next event. Wait, you haven’t been there yet? Email me and share why you think meetings over meals are successful. I have two $100 gift certificates to award to the best responses!

Awards do not come easily in the restaurant business. Michelin, AAA and Forbes tell us who the best is (and Wine Spectator when it comes to vino), and there are only a select few of local establishments that make the esteemed cut. The Bernards Inn is in rare company, as it is the only restaurant in New Jersey that has made the Forbes list of the top restaurants in the United States. AAA counts just 11 restaurants in its Four-Diamond rating in our state. While you may hear that trophies are handed out just for showing up, it’s clearly not the case when it comes to dining.

 

What generation will make up 75 percent of the workforce in 2025? If you guessed millennials, you’d be right! According to an article titled "How Millennials Could Upend Wall Street and Corporate America" by Morley Winograd and Dr. Michael Hais, by 2020, millennials will comprise more than one of three adult Americans, and by 2025 they will make up as much as 75 percent of the workforce. What does that mean for corporate planners? They will have to evolve the way they plan corporate events from boomers and Gen X’ers to millennials or face having an event that will become a social disaster!

DETAILS
This table delights the eye with a bevy of crystal pieces featuring a variety of patterns, some etched with straight, sharp lines and others decorated with flowing, organic designs.
