Style: Upscale sports pub with casual, spacious atmosphere.
Don’t Miss: The outdoor raw bar features clams, jumbo shrimp, stone crab claws, oysters, and oyster shooters (vodka optional). Complicated but delicious: salmon, asparagus, and wild mushroom risotto topped with melted mozzarella and roasted pepper basil oil on a bed of grilled portobello mushrooms ($10). Variation on a classic: niçoise salad with herbed salmon instead of tuna, plus green beans, grilled asparagus, bliss potatoes, tomatoes, chopped egg, and kalamata olives over field greens in a balsamic herb vinaigrette ($15). Prime rib sandwich gets a triple play of Swiss cheese, horseradish sauce, and crispy fried onions ($13). Try the flourless chocolate mousse cake with Kahlua whipped cream ($7) and your taste buds will shout, “Goooal!.’
Heads Up: Twenty-four plasma TVs (including one in each bathroom) and two large bars make this a dining home run for sports fanatics. Friday and Saturday nights a DJ spins club music for dancing.
The Scoop: Alstarz was opened late last year by the family that owns the Mastoris diner, just across the parking lot.
Address: 140 US Highway 130 S, Bordentown
