My wife and I were up north visiting some old high school friends, and they decided to meet up with us at a place called 16 Prospect Bistro, conveniently located at 16 Prospect Street.

While up in North Jersey for my son’s piano competition (and he rocked it by the way, thanks for asking), we decided to meet up with some friends at The Office in Montclair to get a bite to eat. According to their menu, they have a couple different styles of sauce for the wings: Buffalo, Fireball, Southwest Sweet Heat, Ginger Teriyaki, and Arrogant Bastard BBQ Sauce.

While in one of these bars, I met some people who told me that the wings I was currently eating were crap, and if I wanted some great ones, then I needed to check out a bar called The Rock on Main Ave. That, coupled with a slew of Suggest a Joint requests from Jamie, Tony, and Aileen, made me feel that I would be missing out if I didn’t get my butt in there to try them for myself. So the next time I was up that way, that is exactly what I did.
The Rock Bar & Grill is a small place that has a typical “neighborhood bar” look and feel with an everyone-knows-everyone kind of vibe. We arrived at lunch time so (read more…)
