A new Italian European eatery has just opened last week in Hillsdale. It is called Fig & Tomato, its BYOB and will be offering both classic Italian dishes plus European-inspired meals. The menu will include brick-oven pizzas, specialty pastas, meat, and seafood entrees.

The owners of Fig & Tomato are the same team behind Cork & Crust and Raw Oyster Bar & Italian Kitchen in Harrington Park.

They will have indoor and outdoor dining and a room for private events. You can dine in and they are offering takeout, delivery, and catering also.

Beautiful sunflower fields to visit in NJ 2022

Among reasons why the “Garden State” remains a fitting nickname for New Jersey — late summer means the arrival of sunflower season.

There are at least six fields, spanning the state. Some are in bloom as of early August, while others are planned to peak from late August to late September.

Calling or emailing before heading out is always advisable if weather appears to be an issue.
