The Marketing staff of Count Basie Theatre is always busy– and we are always looking for fun places to go and great things to eat on our lunch break. We find ourselves constantly recommending restaurants, shops or attractions in town to our many colleagues, vendors and partners… we’ve decided to extend those recommendations to YOU, our audience– the friends who buy tickets to our performances and spend time in the beautiful town of Red Bank. This will be a new blog, as well as a feature in our emails, and on Facebook and Twitter. It will be a mix of brand new places and old favorites!
This Week’s Best Bet:
“Foccacia Style Sandwiches” on the lunch menu at Tommy’s Coal Fired Pizza
In addition to these sandwiches being mind-blowingly delicious (which they are; more on this later), these sandwiches are enormous which makes them a crazy bargain at just $7.50! Plenty to share, or buy yourself lunch AND dinner in one shot. There are only 2 to choose from– the breaded eggplant (which is pounded thin and topped with fresh mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, roasted red onions, Kalamata olive paste & fresh basil) or the grilled chicken (which has got a bit of a “kick” and is topped with roasted red peppers, mushrooms, onions and fresh pesto sauce) — but both are equally amazing! Oh yeah, they also have pizza, salad, soup, wings and more… but trust us: try these sandwiches first!
