Cravings: Fast Food

by Editorial Staff--South Jersey Magazine
Before you shut off the water and close up the Shore house for the season, you’ll want to look into Somers Point Restaurant Week (Nov. 4-13), where area eateries like The Crab Trap and 800 Bay Restaurant and Bar will be serving three-course dinners for $25.07 or lunches for $11.07. Visit for menus and further information.

Prime 505, the short-lived steakhouse that replaced the short-lived Mother’s Kitchen in Collingswood, is giving way to Little Louie’s BBQ. Expect dishes inspired by different regions of barbecue, from the Carolinas to Kansas City.

Jersey Mike’s Subs, a sandwich chain, has opened its first location in South Jersey on Route 130 in Cinnaminson. The menu features hot and cold sandwiches, including wraps. Hours are 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., seven days a week. For more information, visit

Marlton’s Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar is known for satisfying the meat and potatoes crowd, but they have recently introduced a new small plates menu. Sliced filet mignon with shiitake risotto, polenta fries and lobster tempura are just some of the seven plates now being offered, with prices ranging from $15.50 to $22.95.

Keep an eye on this one, but should the liquor referendum in Moorestown be approved this month, it is very likely that acclaimed chef Marc Vetri will be opening up a restaurant at the mall sometime in the future.

The Rowan Boulevard revitalization project in Glassboro just got tastier with the announcement of Prime, a burger joint from the folks behind Philadelphia’s Pub and Kitchen and Avalon’s Diving Horse. The restaurant is slated to open in the Whitney Center by the end of the year.

5 Spot: Can’t-Miss Cookies
With the holiday season rapidly approaching, you can count on three things: lots of friends, lots of family and, perhaps most importantly, lots of baked goods. But rather than the same old humdrum sugar cookies you’ve been eating all these years, why not spice up the season with a tray of something a little more unique? We put ourselves through a rigorous cookie tasting process (jealous?) and found these five offerings to be quite stellar and, in honor of the holidays, we are willing to share.

Maria’s Mom’s Potato Chip (pictured). A grandmother’s handwritten recipe inspired this cookie that features smashed up potato chips inside the cookie dough. Hand-spooned to allow the chips to properly shine instead of getting minced and lost in the dough, they are surprisingly not salty. And just for good measure, they are dusted in powdered sugar. 13 N. Locust Ave., Marlton, (856) 988-8189

Termini Bros. Pignoli. A traditional Italian specialty from a bakery that knows a thing or two about Italian specialties. These delights are made with almond paste and topped with Spanish pine nuts for a bit of crunch and texture. 137 Egg Harbor Rd., Sewell, (856) 228-8922

Pretty Sweet Bakery Ginger Chewies. These spiced, soft drop cookies smell just like the ones your grandma used to make. The only difference? They taste much, much better. 427 N. Haddon Ave., Haddonfield, (856) 429-0063

Simplicity Desserts Fudge Nut Brownie Cookies. By adding more eggs to brownie mix, it becomes more soft and moist, turning one popular dessert into another. 476 Centennial Blvd., Voorhees, (856) 782-1800

Miel Patisserie Oatmeal Raisin. These cookies pack the perfect amount of raisins, as to not overpower the flavor with too much sweetness. The result is a slightly modern take on a timeless classic. 1990 Route 70 E., Cherry Hill, (856) 424-6435
