If you’re ever at the Jersey Shore, you must visit Pier Village.  It’s a small paradise on the Atlantic with shops, restaurants and clubs.  It’s a fun place for all.

One of my favorite restaurants there is The Avenue.  It’s an upscale French / American brasserie type eatery that will not disappoint and Le Club upstairs is a super place to just chill with your friends.

Stop by for Happy Hour and enjoy a martini or specialty drink – 1/2 price from 3 to 7 and on Friday until closing.  The oysters are fresh and delicious and a must have at the bar.  If you’re going for a snack try Le Petit Plateau but don’t expect to be hungry after that.  It’s a seafood feast for the picker and the drinker alike.

If you’re staying for dinner try their Prix Fixe Menu or any one of their succulent dishes.  I suggest the Escargot or Macaroni Gratin to start.  The Braised Short Ribs are melt in your mouth wonders that will titillate your taste buds.

You can’t go wrong with Le Steak Frites, NY Strip Au Poivre or Moules Frites and don’t forget to try the Brussels Sprouts.

The Avenue is a taste experience to savor, but if you just go for cocktails, you’ll be hooked.  Located on the beach you can sit at their magnificent bar (check out the Mrs. Butterworth’s bottle up top) or enjoy a view of the ocean dehors.

Either way, I think the Avenue is a must-try.  Bon Appétit!
