Who doesn't love a good Jersey diner?
State Street Grill (9 State St., Bloomfield) is open 24 hours a day and serves up only-in-the-Garden-State fare like taylor ham and breakfast all day long.
But the recently renovated diner also boasts gourmet items like brick-oven pizza, gelato and crepes.
For an appetizer, order the diner's signature nachos ($8.95, $2.95 extra to add chicken), with homemade chili, diced tomatoes, jalapeno peppers and lettuce. The State Street Slam ($9.95) is sure to have something for everyone: it's a combination of chicken quesadillas, mozzarella sticks, potato skins (smothered with bacon and cheddar cheese) and nachos.
State Street doesn't skimp on the salads, either. The Italian salad ($8.50, see picture), a Patch favorite, comes with baby organic greens piled high with roasted red peppers, fresh mozzarella, artichoke hearts, sliced portobello mushrooms, sundered tomatoes and pepperoncini.
Burger lovers can rejoice in with eight different Angus Beef platters to choose from like the Chinatown Burger ($9.95) served with mushrooms, onions, green peppers, State Street’s special teriyaki sauce).
State Street's modern interior and laid-back diner atmosphere is the perfect setting for family dinner, business meetings or a good ole coffee klatsch. Dinner and lunch specials available daily.
