Rex has our Memorial Day Barbecue all planned out, but I just got an e-mail from Latitude 40º N, a restaurant in Pt. Pleasant Beach, New Jersey, reminding me that they will be open tomorrow on Memorial Day.
Latitude 40º N features casual dining in a bright, welcoming and tranquil atmosphere. Executive Chef and Owner Randy Pietro, a Point Pleasant resident and Ocean County native, is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America. He brings many years of culinary expertise including 15 years as the executive chef at the famous Mickey Mantle's restaurant in New York City. Randy Pietro opened the doors to Latitude 40º N in July 2004. Since then, his mission has been to offer moderately priced, beautifully presented dishes, prepared using top quality ingredients and outstanding recipes that are both unique and traditional.
While Rex and the girls and I tend to favor Dennis Foy's Bay Point Prime, ever since Dennis closed Dennis Foy's in Pt. Pleasant Beach, Latitude 40º N has been an attractive restaurant for expanding our options without driving too far from Bay Head. If you'd like to experience Latitude 40º N, I'd recommend calling ahead for reservations: 732-892-8553. Latitude 40º N is located in the heart of the Pt. Pleasant Beach downtown area, at 816 Arnold Avenue. And save room for dessert.
