Princeton, New Jersey’s Mistral opened in 2013 with a splash. The shared plates menu made a big impression on New Jerseyans seeking something globally inspired yet close to home. Now, Mistral has added to its growing empire (which also includes the award-winning elements in the Princeton location) and opened a spin-off in the King of Prussia Mall in February 2017. 

“While we were originally questionable about opening at a mall, we saw a lot of potential for the restaurant in the area. There are some great local purveyors and farms in the area to gather ingredients from and develop new flavors with. In addition to heavy foot traffic at King of Prussia, we were intrigued by the corner location and strong outdoor seating area,” says Stephen Distler, co-owner. 

The 3,700-square-foot restaurant offers seating for 111 guests, including an 18-seat bar, and as weather permits, outdoor seating for 48. Groups can either buy out the entire restaurant or enjoy a semiprivate area. Like its Princeton cousin, Mistral is decidedly modern. “Unlike many of the chain restaurants surrounding Mistral KOP, Mistral KOP offers diners an independent, chef-driven menu concept that can be seen throughout the taste, style and atmosphere of the restaurant. Food activists and culinary pioneers Executive Chef Scott Anderson and Chef de Cuisine Craig Polignano place a superlative emphasis on sourcing local ingredients from Montgomery County to impress diners with the freshest flavors available in Montco,” adds Distler. 

Brewing together for pure pleasure since 2006, four guys (Tim Hanna, Matt McDevitt, Chris Konicki and Jim McAfee) finally made their dream a reality in 2011 by opening Tuckahoe Brewing Company. Located in Egg Harbor, Tuckahoe offers tours, private parties and sample tastings of their flavorful on-tap beers. Currently, Tuckahoe has 16 different beers in their tasting room that come in various sizes: 4-ounce pours, 10-ounce goblets and 16-ounce pints.

 

Maritime Parc, located at the marina at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, is well known for its stunning views of Manhattan and its elegant food, but its cocktail list is really worth perusing. These drinks aren’t just delicious—most of the specialty cocktails are inspired by and named for famous shipwrecks off the coast of New Jersey or New York.

The Spanish steamer Vizcaya was headed for Havana on Nov. 1, 1890, when it collided with a coal schooner, Cornelius Hargrave. The wreck is located off the coast of New Jersey about 25 miles south of the Manasquan inlet.
