Remember that a "Best of list" is just an editorial opinion. You should use them for what they should be used for..... A reference of opinion. Of course they are not the "gospel" that is set in stone and does not define every restaurants' reputation and standard. There are always great restaurants that will get bad reviews as there are restaurants that aren't considered as good that will get good reviews. Please enjoy this reference for what it is. A guide of opinion. It is more important to remember that you should simply have fun going out and trying new restaurants in New Jersey. You will surely come up with your own favorites.
