Main Line Business Goes to the Shore
Don’t leave the Main Line behind when you hit the Shore. These suburban mainstays have Jersey homes as well.
(page 1 of 2)
Since Main Liners make up a decent portion of the Jersey Shore’s most devoted visitors, it makes sense that some of your favorite restaurateurs and retailers have been smart enough to open seaside outposts. So where can you get your taste of home by the ocean this summer?
Izakaya at the Borgata
How St. James Place will fare at Suburban Square is yet to be determined. But while you’re waiting for that to open in July, you can always try Izakaya, Michael Schulson’s already-established restaurant at the Borgata in Atlantic City. It’s a modern, upscale Japanese pub. Sample standards like the edamame and Kobe beef, or go for a modern twist on old favorites, like the cheesesteak dumplings and tempura calamari salad. Make sure to include sushi in your meal and, if you care to indulge, a drink from their extensive sake menu. It isn’t a trip to Izakaya without them. Also, ask to try new items that are routinely added to the menu. Last year’s new dessert, corn ice cream, was a surprising and tasty treat.

Peace A Pizza
The pizza that you couldn’t live without started as one eatery in Rosemont, and has since spread to 13 spots all over the region, including locations in Wayne and West Chester—even extending all the way to Florida. And there’s a Peace A Pizza in Stone Harbor, too. Enjoy the same slices you already know and love: Sicilian, chicken Parmesan, the Philly cheesesteak (yes, on a pizza—it’s delish). Or, if you’re looking for something on the lighter side, try one of their gourmet salads. And you can’t miss the location, with its colorful signature peace sign.
