gnocchi Plan B Asbury parkI just love the name of this restaurant.  The owner shared with us that this restaurant was his “plan B.”  His Plan A had been a bed and breakfast, but after talking it over with family, he decided on Plan B and I personally am very happy he did.  Peter and I stopped into Plan B in Asbury Park on Thursday night to celebrate Peter’s birthday.  Plan B’s home is in a long and narrow building located on the first block of Cookman Avenue right off of Main street.

As you know, on my Quest for Food with Attitude, I am forever searching out new and inventive menus.  Plan B did not disappoint.  After some guidance from the owner,  we decided on two appetizers the Gnocchi with Butternut Squash and Figs and the Duck Sausage, both made in-house by their talented crew.

Like I said, very inventive and delicious.

As I was taking pictures of my food, and Peter’s food and other people’s food  (Yes, it’s never a secret when Jersey Bites is in the house. ) I came across a table of Twitter buddies.  As you can see here,  they are playing the part of casual diners oblivious to the camera brilliantly.  Well done @AsburyPop

Plan B is a BYOB, so be sure to come prepared.  Unfortunately, their website is not working at the moment, so I can’t link to a menu.  Hopefully, this issue will be rectified in the next few days.
