N.J.’s best expensive restaurant is in West Jersey, according to a national site

Dinner at Restaurant Latour might break the bank. But according to one national website, a meal at the acclaimed restaurant is worth every penny.

Restaurant Latour, the fine dining establishment that is part of Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg, was just named the best expensive restaurant in New Jersey by EatThis.com.

“Located in the Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg, Restaurant Latour has a five- or seven-course prix fixe menu with dishes featuring the freshest local produce,” EatThis.com said. “If you choose to imbibe, the restaurant’s wine cellar has won the Grand Award from Wine Spectator every year since 2006.”

Restaurant Latour’s menu features offerings like dan dan noodles with sawagani crab; lamb with mountain sumac, labneh and rhubarb; cold-smoked halibut with kumquat and roasted artichoke; rabbit roulade with black pudding, carrot polenta and leek top hollandaise; and kingfish crudo with ramps, poached mushroom and ginger creme. There’s also an entire section of the menu dedicated to caviar.

Fancy enough for you?

A three-course meal at Restaurant Latour will run you $120, and the full seven-course meal costs $195 —with $75 extra for the wine pairing.

NJ.com reviewed Restaurant Latour back in 2016 and proclaimed, “Latour is pricey but worth it for those who value a restful type of dining experience with intriguing food.”

Such fine dining comes with a dress code. Jackets are preferred for men, and there is no denim, sporting attire, T-shirts, ripped clothing, shorts, sneakers or flip-flops allowed.

Restaurant Latour was joined on the list by acclaimed national restaurants The French Laundry in California and Eleven Madison Park in New York City, which just made headlines for shifting to a completely plant-based menu.
