If you’re looking to get out of NYC for a weekend getaway, Red Bank, NJ is a great spot to hit up. The Molly Pitcher Inn is walking distance to the downtown but book your stay early because it fills up fast… especially in the summer. Here are just some of the great spots while you’re there.
JBJ Soul Kitchen
IN 2006, Jon Bon Jovi founded what is now known as the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation to support community efforts to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness. Out of this grew his JBJ Soul Kitchen, a community restaurant where patrons pay what they can afford for their meals, either with money or by volunteering work. There are no prices on the menu, but rather a suggested donation. In addition to the Red Bank location, there is also one in Tom’s River.
Red Tank Brewing
Nestled right in downtown Red Bank is Red Tank Brewing. It was opened by husband-and-wife John & Lovina Arcara, who wanted to bring a family friendly spot to their town. Besides great beer, it’s a spot to hear a variety of live music.
Johnny's Pork Roll and Coffee Too!
Breakfast sandwiches in New Jersey are made with eggs, cheese and Taylor Ham… or is it called Pork Roll? Well, it depends where in NJ you live. North Jersey calls it Taylor Ham, but it’s called pork roll to the south and here at Johnny’s Pork Roll and Coffee Too! If you want to eat like a local, you gotta have some pork roll for breakfast.
The Dublin House
Who doesn’t love a good Irish bar? Here at Dublin House you can grab some Guiness (obviously) and also Shepherd’s Pie, Fish & Chips, or Bangers & Mash.
The Molly Pitcher Inn
The absolute best place to stay in Red Bank!
