Sharing a meal is a great way to build relationships

Strengthen your bonds with clients, referral partners, other agents, and office friends with something that everyone loves... food! We all have our favorites, but it is definitely a great idea to try new restaurants or new cuisines. Your next meeting with a client at a good restaurant will keep them talking about it to other people and yield referrals in the process.

Impress your clients (and co-workers ;) by recommending or meeting in a few of these places in North Jersey that are sure to bring some variety to the summer.
 
Hamburgao, 282 Kearny Ave, Kearny, NJ
With locations in Kearny and Newark, Hamburgao offers Brazillian-style hamburgers that are delicious.  A Brazilian-style burger features creative toppings and meats.  Their burger options include breaded steak, chicken and ground beef.  With toppings ranging from mozzarella to French fries, pineapple, eggs and cream cheese.  You’ll enjoy trying a few different options to see which combinations you like the best.
 
Taino’s Kitchen, 849 Mt. Prospect Ave, Newark, NJ
Arguably, Taino’s is one of the best Puerto Rican restaurants in North Jersey.  They serve all of the classic Puerto Rican dishes including Mofongo, sancocho, empanadas and tostones. Taino’s also offers a great tembleque.  If you’ve never tried authentic Puerto Rican food, try Taino’s.
 
House of Thai, 59 New Street, Newark, NJ
This is an amazing place for Thai food.  You know it’s good when there is a line out the door at lunch.  Their lunch specials offer the ability to try 1, 2 or 3 entrée combos.  You can see what the entrees are before you order and the portions are huge.
 
Red White and Que Smokehouse, 266 Davis Ave., Kearny, NJ
You’ll find a classic southern bbq right here in New Jersey.  Red White and Que’s owner is a veteran of the US Marine Corps who is living the American Dream running his own restaurant.  Texas Brisket, Carolina Pulled Pork, St. Louis Ribs, smoked chicken, wings and sausage are served up with classic sides like mac and cheese, potato salad, collard greens and cornbread.  You might need a walk after lunch here, so park far away.
 
Cuban Pete’s, 428 Bloomfield Ave, Montclair, NJ
If you are looking for a great environment to match a delicious meal, Cuban Pete’s should be high on your list.  They have classic Cuban and Caribbean entrees.  The Lechon is a traditional meal that will make you long for some time on the island.  The La Gloria Cubana is their take on the classic Cuban Sandwich that is one of the best you’ll ever have.
 
Firepit Barbecue, 300 Belleville Tpke, Kearny, NJ
Offering authentic Portuguese style BBQ, Firepit BBQ provides great affordable options for lunch.  They offer something for everyone including great salads, sandwiches and steaks.  Not just sandwiches and ribs, Firepit Barbecue includes seafood and prime cuts of steak.
 
Mr. Nino’s III, Brick Oven Trattoria, 246 Kearny Ave., Kearny, NJ
While they have a little bit of everything, from pasta and seafood to subs and veal, Mr. Nino’s is a classic Italian restaurant with great pizza options.  You’ll want to experience their family-friendly environment and high-quality cuisine at affordable prices.

Harry and Ida’s Meat Supply, 189 Avenue A, New York, NY
Okay, this one is not in North Jersey but if you take a run into the East Village, you won’t be disappointed by the best pastrami sandwich you’ve ever had. Harry and Ida’s cures and smokes its pastrami in-house.  Think of it as artisanal pastrami.  Their sandwich is made with pastrami that looks like a Texas brisket style. Sister and brother owners Julie and Will Horowitz only use fatty Creekstone deckles, which they smoke over oak and maple. They steam the meat, slice it by hand, and use it to build a herculean half-pound sandwich in a long Pain D'Avignon Po' Boy roll. The toppings are fragrant pickled dill and cucumber kraut.  A culinary experience that won’t disappoint.
