Winberies: A Classic Princeton Pub

There is something about a walk through downtown Princeton that just puts a smile on my face. With warm and unseasonably spring-like weather, it was a great opportunity to go for a stroll down Nassau Street in the historic town known globally for its Ivy League University. The architecture and character of the town alone are reasons to pay a visit. Another one of my favorite aspects of Princeton is its collection of dining establishments. If you are a foodie like I am, step into downtown and let your imagination run wild in virtually every type of global cuisine imaginable. You would be doing yourself a disservice to not enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in this intimate Central Jersey bed of history. From a simple cup of coffee to a five star multi-course meal event, you are almost certain to find a charming place that satisfies your desires for any occasion. Last Friday, my Wife and I stopped at a bar and grill establishment Winberies, which is located on a corner in the downtown section of Palmer Square right off of Nassau Street. For those unfamiliar with this part of town, picture a small picturesque collection of shops that slightly resemble Cape May, minus the beach, intertwined with a massive block of gorgeous, yet extremely expensive townhomes. Inside, on one side is a homey cozy bar that stretches across most of the room to group of tables in the back. The other side has a section of tables and booths, which is where we sat. The booths are wooden with names of prior guests carved into them. I like this touch. It makes for an interesting conversation while waiting for your meal, in addition to a nice touch of character. I enjoyed the Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken sandwich with an IPA. One of the intriguing menu items that I will try another time when I visit is the Craft Burger, which is basically a different burger with unique toppings that is changed frequently. This is cool as it will give you a reason to keep coming back, especially if you are a burger fanatic as I am. The environment alone makes it a great stop for anyone looking to have a casual date or a drink to catch up with an old friend. The vibe gives off a warm, friendly neighborhood feel. The location is nice because after dinner, there is a nice little block of streets to take a casual stroll, and perhaps finish the night by indulging with a scoop of ice cream from Halo Pub around the corner (The cookies and cream is incredible!). Enjoy the week! C
