The Brothers Moon in Hopewell has introduced their spring menu, and it looks to be a winner. Take a look at these entrées; I’m lusting after the Barnegat scallops with Mangalista pork, myself. There are a lot of local products being used here, too which is nice.
Risotto of local corn shoots with ricotta, Parmesan and parsley oil $19.
Double-cut pork chop with French lentils, cippolini onions, beet greens and pinot noir pork braise $26.
Grilled marinated hanger steak, grilled broccoli rabe, local hay smoked fingerling potatoes, red onion and parsley salad, Syrah demi-glace $25.
Crispy skinned Griggstown Farm chicken breast, herb and red grape bread salad, caramelized parsley root, sour grape and roasted shallot jus $24.
Grilled Barnegat scallops with local Mangalitsa pork, NJ tomato glaze, local wheat berries and roasted leeks, Blue Moon Acres micro salad $29.
Lardo wrapped New England Day-Boat cod with broken honey-bacon sauce, asparagus and white bean salad, wilted baby arugula $26.
Plancha-grilled Spanish mackerel on grilled asparagus, enoki mushrooms with crisp diced potato, accompanied by Romesco sauce $24.
Creamy local organic polenta, seasonal mushroom fricassee with grilled chicory $21.
By the way, these entrees are all under $30. More and more places in our area are crossing that $30 point, and I have to say, once you get up into that range, for me, it had better be really good, and served in a comfortable setting.
Chef Will, you’ve outdone yourself!
