Lucas Ristorante, Rt 27 South in either Franklin Twp or North Brunswick.
AnnMarie: I went to a great local restaurant named Lucas Ristorante in North Brunswick (zagat rated). It has great atmosphere and not your run of the mill italian menu. It is also BYOB which could be interesting if everyone brought their favorite bottle of red or bottle of white to share. How about doing this mid week, mid January?
