Taco De Ojo Taqueria, Westfield

Westfield recently welcomed a vibrant BYO taqueria. The interior of Taco De Ojo, which translates to “eye candy,” is covered in bright, neon artwork, and much of the food is colorful, too. There are Mexican staples, like birria tacos, empanadas, street corn, and chips and guacamole, plus the option to build your own tacos, bowls, burritos, nachos and quesadillas.

CatBird, Asbury Park

This new lakeside eatery doubles as a wood-fired kitchen and non-alcoholic bar. At CatBird, named after gray catbirds (a bird that chirps and sounds like a cat meowing) that linger around town, guests can enjoy a variety of square, wood-fired pizzas, plus salads, sides and house-made sourdough bread. The mocktails are made with fresh botanicals and zero-proof spirits. Non-alcoholic beer and sparkling wine are available, too. If zero-proof isn’t your thing, the restaurant is BYO. No reservations.
