Sally Boy’s, Red Bank

Sal Basile, the co-founder of multi-state Artichoke Basile’s Pizza, opened an Italian restaurant in Red Bank this month. The place is named for Basile’s son and is also an homage to his own childhood nickname. Sally Boy’s offers Italian dishes Basile grew up eating, including pizza, calzones, fresh pastries and other breakfast, lunch and dinner options. A special menu includes the Salzone: a monster-size calzone filled with eggplant and cheese, topped with Parmesan cheese and a drizzle of imported olive oil.

Hearthside, Collingswood

One of NJM’s favorite 30 restaurants of 2022, Hearthside is switching gears in March. The restaurant announced in an Instagram post that it will move to a pre-fixe menu, due to rising food costs and also in an effort to continue evolving. The new menu will change bi-weekly and be released ahead of time.
