About the Author
The "South Jersey Foodie" is Nicole Pellegrini, sometimes known as sockii. She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.

Excellent Japanese, Chinese, and Thai Food Can Be Found at This Southern New Jersey BYOB
Mandarin Oriental in Mullica Hill is part of the Mandarin Group of six restaurants throughout southern New Jersey. As with many Asian restaurants in the Jersey suburbs, Mandarin Oriental offers a mixture of Japanese, Chinese and Thai cuisines, with a sushi bar to complement its menu of hot appetizers and entrees. While the restaurant succeeds better with some dishes than others, Mandarin Oriental is a fine choice for Asian food in the area, with great service in an attractive atmosphere to enhance your dining experience.

Enjoy Some of the City’s Best Italian Food at This Quaint, Affordable Restaurant
Salento is a shining star amidst Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s crowded Italian BYOB scene. This delightful restaurant prepares truly authentic Italian food at affordable prices, distinguishing itself from the crowd by featuring specialties from the Puglia region of Italy, not often found on menus stateside. Chef Davide Faenza, originally from Gallipoli, prepares his food with passionate skill and a delicate hand. The result is an experience about as close to dining in a small trattoria or osteria in Italy as one can get in Philadelphia.
This Philadelphia Neighborhood Has Many Outstanding Options for Fine Italian Dining
What are the best Italian BYOB restaurants in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania? This question is one I see asked regularly on “foodie” and travel forums such as ChowHound and eGullet. There are so many excellent Italian BYOBs throughout the city that it is best to examine just one neighborhood at a time. Rittenhouse Square is a popular Center City neighborhood in Philadelphia, filled with fancy shopping boutiques, luxury condominiums, deluxe hotels and of course excellent dining destinations. For visitors and city residents alike, it is a great neighborhood for planning an evening out, and many Italian BYOB restaurants are in the immediate area. Below are five of my favorites. Whether you are looking for a romantic hideaway, a modern atmosphere and menu, or traditional Italian favorites, these restaurants have something to satisfy everyone. As you can bring your own wine, cost is also kept more reasonable; it is very possible to have a very large, multi-course meal at any of these establishments for $60-100 for two.
