This is where I like to take people from out of town. There is something for everyone. Vegetarian lentil soup, hummus, salads, pitzas of all kinds, lots of meat choices, and wonderful teas, drinks, and desserts. Highly recommended.

Uncle Momo would definitely be on my 'return often' list if we didn't live so far away. We were in Montclair to visit the art museum (another definite 'return') and wanted to eat an early dinner at a local but well-reviewed restaurant. We certainly lucked...More
