Bonnie Larson has graciously taken over as chair of this group. Please contact Bonnie by email, bonniejlarson@comcast.net, if you’re planning to join the group.  She will email those who have shown interest in these monthly luncheons, to inform them of the current restaurant choice.  

We are going to go to a restaurant in Lawrenceville for lunch on Tuesday, April 23 at NOON.  Come a little early if you can so that you make sure that you get a parking place behind the restaurant.  Please let me know by Wednesday, April 17 if you plan to join us.

Bonnie Larson

Email or call Bonnie for the April lunch location, so that she also can have a head count for the reservation at the restaurant.

An urgent request:  If you have to cancel your reservation at the last moment or a day or two before the lunch date because of some unforseen event, PLEASE call Bonnie rather than using email. If you would like to be on a waiting list, in case of someone cancelling, let Bonnie know also. 

Restaurant Reviews 

On Friday, March 15, 2019, we went to Brick Farm Tavern in Hopewell for lunch. As each of us entered, we were all commenting on how beautiful the restaurant and grounds are.  We had a room to ourselves, which was good because we had 16 ladies. The waiter was Elaine Rafferty’s godson who was wonderful to our group. The menu was quite limited. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food, but some of the entrees were very small. Before ordering it is important to ask about your choice so you are not disappointed. It is farm to table and the food is organic, including the tea. Some of us had Creme Brûlée tea and some tried the beer that is brewed on site. All in all, everyone had a good time at the restaurant and we decided that we will go back in December when the restaurant and grounds are decorated for the holidays.  

On Thursday, February 7, 2019,  we had a good time at Brickhouse Tavern and Pub in the Marketfair Complex.

Eight of us had a wonderful lunch at Salt Creek Grill on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at NOON.  It was a little noisy, but that did not stop us from having good food and great conversations.  

We actually had a good time at Metro North on Friday, December 14, 2018, but the service was slow and they would not give individual check.

We lunched out at Capuano’s on Clarksville Road on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at 12:30. Capuano’s is a great Italian restaurant in the area. The food is always excellent and they gave us separate checks. We sat in the back room and enjoyed it very much.

We had a wonderful lunch at Vidalia in Lawrenceville on Friday, September 21, 2018.  The weather held out and we were able to sit on their patio.

We had a nice lunch on Monday, May 7, 2018 at Eno Terra, even though the service was slow.

Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at 12:30. We had a wonderful time at Big Fish.  We had a round table which enabled us to visit with everyone. Food was good and we didn’t even realize how loud the music was!
