There are more red sauce joints along the Jersey Shore than the beach has sand. Anjelica’s Restaurant isn’t just the best at the Shore—it might be the best along the entire Eastern Seaboard. Reservations may seem impossible, but it’s worth checking constantly to secure one, even if you have to get a table in their outdoor alley (which is actually the best place to sit). When you do, settle in for a meal with incredible and attentive service. Plates of orecchiette in a spicy vodka sauce, caramelle in lemon cream, and mafaldine al ragu can go toe-to-toe with most spots just a few nautical miles north (within the five boroughs). And the rotating entrees, like the veal saltimbocca, are an equally important part of the meal—even if you already feel like you’ve hit capacity. And always save room for some cannoli or one of their many housemade desserts.
