My boss and I took some time today to go get some coffee and fresh air.  We decided to go to Starbucks in Sea Girt.  It’s in the shopping plaza owned by Metrovation.  We sat outside at a table and chairs and chit chatted away.  Such a beautiful day, too!  I don’t really go to Starbucks often, but my overpriced Iced Dulce de Leche latte was pretty damned good.

Sorry no pictures, I left my camera at home.

Some recent items of note along Route 35 between Eatontown and Red Bank include:

-Tokyo Sushi is now Sushi 2.

-The Dunkin Donuts (by Perkins) is now open.

-The Bank of New York is now Chase.

-There’s construction activity happening in Shrewsbury.  From what I can see when I’m driving by there’s a Metrovation developer sign on the site.  No mention of it on their website, though.

Little Tokyo Eatontown

Little Tokyo Restaurant
26 Main Street (Route 35)
Eatontown NJ 07724

The restaurant was closed for much of the summer for renovations, but reopened a couple months ago I believe. Tonight my honey and I decided to go check it out. We found it to our liking. They have an excellent selection of sushi as well as a large assortment of Japanese dishes (steaks, seafood, etc.)

I was happy to see Korean Kalbi (barbeque short ribs) available. I had a small order for appetizer. It was quite good. My fiance had the avocado & mango salad and approved of it. We shared a bunch of different rolls – Phoenix, Cucumber, Spicy Tuna, and “Home Dell” (I forget exactly what was in that) and a sashimi platter for the main course. I especially loved the Phoenix (eel) roll. We had absolutely no complaints, all very delicious and service was prompt and friendly. Two thumbs up!

EDIT: According to the sign outside, they are now “Sushi 2”, but all of their napkins and chopsticks still say “Tokyo”.
