Restaurant Serenade in Chatham, NJ is one of those very special places for really special celebrations!  With meticulous service, a very tempting menu and a wonderful selection of wines, one can always rely on it to bring out the best in an occasion.  It is several years since I was last there and my visit this week was to celebrate dinner for someone's birthday.  It is conveniently located just a few minutes from my home in Summit, NJ in Chatham Borough, the next door town.  Everything there runs seamlessly and the attention from staff is extensive but not intrusive, something that I value highly.  I think that one of their secrets is maintaining a small, but delicious, menu using only the freshest ingredients, all beautifully presented with emphasis on the season.  We started off with...

Sutton Woods Chatham NJ - Hurricane Sandy Report Hurricane Sandy has been devastating for the NY Tri-State area but we have been very fortunate at Sutton Woods in Chatham NJ to have had gotten through this terrible event with little damage. We were without electricity for 10 days.  That means no heat, hot water, or TV.  It was a bit isolating and certainly very quiet.  A few trees are down but travel throughout Sutton Woods is a breeze, not like the rest of town or even nearby towns where trees are lying in streets and yards all over the place.  All in all, we were very lucky at Sutton Woods. Then we had about 8" of snow right after - our streets and sidewalks and driveways in Sutton Woods were cleared right away!       If you have any questions, please feel welcome to reach out to me v...

Things to do in and around Chatham NJ One of my favorite things about Chatham NJ is how much there is to do and how close it is to so many wonderful events and venues!  Many events and venues take place right here in Chatham NJ or in neighboring towns like Summit NJ, Millburn NJ, Madison NJ and Morristown NJ.  Others take place still near enough for day trips! Last week my husband and I took two trains right to Forest Hills NY to attend the US Open Tennis.   We took NJ Transit from Summit in to Penn Station where we then got on the LIRR for 2 stops.  Less than an hour from home, we were walking into the US Open grounds to enjoy a wonderful day of world-class tennis!  It was a beautiful, sunny, dry day and the ride was easy and uneventful.     What a beautiful thing ... an hour from our ...
